Rosacea is a very common skin condition with prevalence for persons of fair skin type, Celtic or Northern European heredity. However, the condition can be found in dark skinned patients as well. Rosacea is a disease of the central aspect of the face, localized to the nose, forehead, cheeks, chin and glabella (the area between the eyebrows). A bright red central face, capillary prominence and Acneiform eruptions mark full-blown Rosacea. There is no known cause for Rosacea, although there seems to be a problem with abnormal blood vessel dilation and constriction in the arteries of the face. The condition peaks between ages 40 to 50. Women are affected more often than men in a 3:1 ratio. One thing common to all cases of Rosacea is that solar irradiation makes it flare and worsens its clinical course and prognosis. Other environmental factors such as heat, humidity, cold, and dryness have been cited as possible irritating factors as well.
