Symptoms of rosacea

Although the appearance of rosacea can impact self-esteem and be uncomfortable to live with, there are a number of effective ways to manage inflammation and minimise the likelihood of future flare-ups.

Rosacea can be categorised into four types; vascular, inflammatory,  phymatous and ocular rosacea. Regardless of the type of rosacea you have, common symptoms will present as redness of the skin and visible blood vessels.

Common symptoms of rosacea include:

      • Frequent blushing on the cheeks, chin and forehead
      • Persistent redness that looks like sunburn
      • Visible blood vessels on the face
      • Skin thickening, particularly around the nose area
      • Bumps on the face
      • Burning or stinging sensations on the face
      • Red, irritated, or swollen eyelids
      • Rough or dry skin

Types of rosacea


Appears as red patches on the face, with some patients also experiencing visible blood vessels in the affected areas.


Similar to the vascular rosacea, in the way of severe facial redness. With inflammatory rosacea, however, people also develop red bumps and pustules on the face.


Defined by thickening of the skin, which generally affects the nose and causes the surface to become bumpy.


Inflammation of the eyes and eyelids. The degree of severity differs greatly as some people will have no visible symptoms, whilst others will experience severe discomfort and swelling of the eyes.

It’s time to look after your health

Rosacea can be uncomfortable and, in some severe cases, very painful. The good news is that there are effective treatments available to better manage the symptoms of rosacea. The hub.health medical team prescribes tailored solutions for your skin, delivered direct to your door.

Rosacea FAQs

What is rosacea?

Rosacea is a common chronic skin condition that occurs when tiny blood vessels on the skin’s surface (capillaries) enlarge and break to cause inflammation, redness, and the appearance of flushing.

How is rosacea treated?

Since the symptoms of rosacea vary for each person, personalised treatment must be prescribed by a medical professional on a case-by-case basis. Depending on severity of symptoms, a range of oral and topical medications can be used to treat redness and control flare ups. Long-term anti-inflammatory therapy may be prescribed to maintain remission. Laser therapies and lifestyle modifications may also be recommended.

Can rosacea be cured?

Unfortunately, there’s no cure for rosacea, however the condition is manageable with appropriate treatments prescribed by a clinician or skin specialist.
