What are the symptoms of rosacea?
Rosacea can manifest with a variety of symptoms. It often first appears as overly red cheeks on the face but can also manifest in the form of red blotches, a red rash, pimples, enlarged blood vessels or thread veins. Rosacea can also occur in other areas of the body such as the neck, chest, ears and scalp. The most common symptoms of rosacea are:
- Flushed red cheeks on face – this is one of the most common early symptoms of rosacea.
- Red rash on face (Erythema) – persistent red blotches on face, which can resemble sunburn.
- Pimples – bumps and pimples accompanied by a burning/stinging sensation.
- Enlarged blood vessels (telangiectasia) – blood vessels that are easily visible are common rosacea symptoms.
