Rosacea is a skin condition that has four different sub types because there are so many different symptoms associated with the same condition:

  • Facial redness – this type usually causes a persistent redness in the center of your face, and the small blood vessels on the nose and cheeks swell and become more visible—often involving more flushing or blushing.
  • Rosacea with acne-like breakouts – small red bumps and pustules that resemble acne develop on the face, and the skin may feel hot and tender.
  • Rosacea with thickening skin, particularly of the nose.
  • Rosacea affecting the eyes – the eyes become irritated and swollen or dry in some people or watery for others with a cyst on the eyelid blurry vision.
