Mainly redness: Although very common, rosacea is a condition with no definite cause. Usually, people will complain of flushing, redness, and irritiation. Sometimes this is accompanied by acne. This acne is different from the common acne of adolescents but just as bothersome. It is associated with stress and anxiety as well. Things that trigger it can be varied. Avoiding any sort of inflammation is helpful.
