89% of the population have Rosacea which means 1 in 4 people have this disease.  This condition has no cure, but there are treatment options that can keep the signs and symptoms from having flare ups.  Rosacea causes redness and often small, red, bumps on the face. It is most common in middle-aged women and men with fair skin. However, any skin type can suffer from this disease.  Often mistaken for acne or other skin conditions. You do not have to have every sign and symptom of rosacea to be diagnosed. The redness may spread beyond the nose and cheeks to the forehead and chin. Even the ears, chest, and back can be red all the time. Rosacea can cause more than redness.  Enlarged pores across the chin and cheeks, broken capillaries also known as telangiectasias are the most common first symptoms to present.
