In brief: Rosacea in children

Although the incidence of rosacea in adolescents and children is infrequent, such cases have been documented in the medical literature.
Eyelid styes may be one form. Rosacea often runs in families, and rosacea sufferers would be wise to be on the lookout for early signs in children in order to seek diagnosis and treatment before the condition worsens.
