Rosacea Symptoms & Diagnosis

Symptoms

The symptoms of rosacea vary from person to person. They include:

  • Frequent flushing on the face and neck
  • Redness and swelling on the face
  • Small pink bumps and/or pimples
  • Thin red lines showing the small blood vessels of the face
  • Redness, burning, dryness, and tearing of the eyes
  • An enlarged, bulbous red nose (less common, affecting men more than women)

Diagnosis

Your doctor will ask about your symptoms and medical history. A physical exam will be done. Your skin will also be examined. You may be referred to a doctor who specializes in skin disorders. This type of doctor is called a dermatologist. Do not try to diagnose or treat yourself. Certain over-the-counter medications could make your condition worse.
