When It’s Not Acne: Papule and Pustule-Associated Rosacea

When It’s Not Acne: Papule and Pustule-Associated Rosacea

Rosacea is a chronic disorder that predominantly affects the central areas of the face (nose, forehead, cheeks and chin). It is characterised by frequent flushing, persistent erythema and telangiectasia, and episodes of inflammation during which swelling, papules and pustules are evident. These symptoms are frequently accompanied by periocular inflammation and are sometimes associated with the later development of cutaneous swellings known as phymas.
