Rosacea is an inflammatory skin disease that causes redness on the face. Affecting millions of Americans, Rosacea commonly has a “butterfly” pattern that covers the nose and cheeks but may also include other areas, or progress to a condition called acne rosacea (papular rosacea). If left untreated, it usually progressively gets worse. Rosacea can also be an indication of a more serious medical problem, like lupus.
