Many: Long term the condition can be quite devastating to some. The redness and irritation can result in the appearance of enlarged blood vessels on the face, the skin may become thick from oil glands enlarging (rhinophyma), irritation of the eyelids can cause pain and burning, continued acne breakouts can be quite troublesoe and, you may blush and become very red easily.
