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.

Vascular rash: The classical appearance of acne rosacea is an inducible red vascular pattern commonly effecting the cheeks & nose. It can be trgggered by emotion or certain foods and particularly wine. In advanced cases there is overgrowth of the sebaceous (oil) glands of the nose called rhinophyma which has been associated but not caused by drinking alcohol. Antibiotics & recently Oracea are often prescribed.
