Rosacea: clinical features and treatment

Isabel Lavers Dermatology nurse specialist, Dermatology, Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust, Salford, England

Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that predominantly affects the central face. It is characterised by a variable range of symptoms, including erythema, telangiectasia, papules, pustules and changes in skin texture. Rosacea may be transient, recurrent or persistent. Because it affects the most visible part of the body, the psychosocial effects of this condition can be significant. This article describes the features and management of the condition.
