About Papulopustular Rosacea
Papulopustular rosacea also known as inflammatory lesion of rosacea, is a chronic and recurrent inflammatory skin disorder that affects nearly 5 million Americans.i The condition is common, especially in fair-skinned people of Celtic and northern European heritage. Onset is usually after age 30 and typically begins as flushing and subtle redness on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead. If left untreated, rosacea can slowly worsen over time. As the condition progresses the redness becomes more persistent, blood vessels become visible and pimples often appear. Other symptoms may include burning, stinging, dry skin, plaques and skin thickening.
