Rosacea - A skin condition that can cause acne-like breakouts and redness.  It tends to start at an older age than adolescent acne.


These two skin conditions tend to require different treatment. Some people have both.

It’s also possible that you have another skin condition. A skin reaction called perioral dermatitis, for example, can cause pimple-like breakouts and redness on your face. Other skin conditions can also cause a red face.

Accurate diagnosis usually provides a solution to long term control of this chronic condition with topical or oral medications, or laser treatments.
