Rosacea: a skin disease of the face that affects the quality of life of patients

Rosacea is a chronic and progressive dermatological disease that manifests as centrofacial erythema and tends to worsen over time. The two most common forms of rosacea (vascular and papulopustular) mainly affect women aged 30 to 50 years. Although it is more easily diagnosed in patients with fair skin, rosacea affects all skin types.

The etiology of this inflammatory disease remains poorly understood but seems to involve dysregulation of the immune and neurovascular systems, and increased skin colonization by mites. Rosacea causes vasomotor flushing that is often triggered by sun exposure, temperature variations, hot drinks, and spicy food. The resulting redness and telangiectasias exacerbate facial skin sensitivity. Dryness, skin burning sensations, and persistent redness have a particularly large impact on patient quality of life. Moreover, papules and pustules may also appear on the nose and cheeks of patients with papulopustular rosacea.
