Rosacea is a serious disease which can bring severe complications if it is left untreated. However, rosacea has specific symptoms which, in many cases, can't be easily identified and is often mistaken for some other conditions with similar symptoms, such as lupus or acne. Rosacea may appear as an irritation of the skin and the face, which can become sensitive and red causing great discomfort. It is considered that there is an important connection between rosacea and headaches due to the blood vessels.
Some of the most known symptoms of rosacea include:
The face and skin become red and sensitive. The facial redness appears because of broken blood vessels which usually expand due to the prolonged exposure to the sun and to the dehydrating effects of alcohol.Post ads:

The most common areas where rosacea may occur are the nose, chin, cheeks and forehead. Men usually tend to have this infection on the nose but in many cases it may appear on the neck or upper chest.
Rosacea produces small pimples on the red areas of the skin, pimples which have black and whiteheads and are different than the olnes produced by acne.
Another symptom of rosacea are the swollen bumps on the nose. In the severe cases, rosacea may lead to rhinophyma, an irritation of the nose.
On the face may appear tiny, thin red lines (telangiectasia) which look like butterflies or spider webs and are caused by the blood vessels breaking. However, rosacea may affect the eyes too and most of the people who suffer from this disease can expect eye irritation and discomfort.
In this case, the eyes get irritated, becoming red and dry, and the vision may become impaired. Other symptoms include, crusted mucus, tearing, and feelings of burning and itching.
The irritation might extend to the eyelids, in turn, becoming swelled, dry and flaky.
