What are the symptoms of rosacea?

Symptoms of rosacea include:

Facial Redness: Persistent redness in the central part of the face, such as the cheeks, nose, forehead, and chin. This redness may come and go or become more persistent over time.

Visible Blood Vessels: Small, visible blood vessels on the face, particularly on the nose and cheeks. These blood vessels may appear as thin, red lines.

Flushing: Episodes of sudden redness or flushing of the skin, often triggered by certain foods, alcohol, hot beverages, spicy foods, sunlight, stress, or temperature changes.

Papules and Pustules: Small, red bumps (papules) or pus-filled bumps (pustules) resembling acne. These may be tender or painful and can appear similar to acne but without blackheads.

Thickened Skin: In some cases, rosacea can lead to thickening of the skin, particularly on the nose, resulting in a bulbous or enlarged appearance.

Burning or Stinging Sensations: Sensations of burning, stinging, or tightness in the affected areas of the face.
