WHAT IS ACNE ROSACEA?
Acne Rosacea is an inflammatory condition, which appears as intense redness typically in the centre of the face. The skin can feel very sore and uncomfortable and in severe cases may develop papules (small, inflamed pink or red bumps on the skin) or pustules (inflamed, pus filled dome shaped lesion on the skin), which look like common acne. However, no blackheads or whiteheads will be present.
In severe cases of Rosacea, even though the blemishes can appear similar to acne, it is very important not to treat them as you would treat acne. This is because Rosacea is an incredibly sensitive skin condition, which treatments can aggravate.
