Picture of Rosacea (2 of 2)

Rosacea is an inflammatory condition of the midface characterized by the presence of erythema, papules, pustules, telangiectasias, and, in the later stages, hyperplasia of the sebaceous glands of the nose. The absence of comedones helps to distinguish this condition from acne vulgaris, although the two conditions may coexist. Although usually seen in middle age, this condition may start in late adolescence.
