This is a disorder of fair-skinned people in which there is fixed or recurrent erythema, telangiectasia, oedema, papules and pustules affecting the forehead, cheeks, nose and often the chin.

It is relatively common, accounting for 1% of dermatological out-patients in Britain. It occurs in the second half of life and is associated with facial flushing.

Rosacea is more common in women, but it tends to be more severe in men (1,2).

Ocular changes occur in more than 50% of the patients (1).
