Rosacea is a non-contagious but chronic inflammatory skin disease. Those affected can experience redness, pimples and nodules mainly in the face area, mostly on the cheeks, nose, forehead and chin.

More rarely, the eyes and eyelids become inflamed as a result of the disease.

Rosacea is caused by a number of factors. In most cases, the disease first appears between the ages of 30 and 50. Since there are different forms, it is difficult to estimate how many people have rosacea worldwide. In regions with a fair-skinned population, around 1 - 10% of people are affected . Women are more often affected than men; in men, on the other hand, the symptoms are more pronounced.


Depending on the severity of the symptoms, there are three different stages of rosacea-

  • Stage 1 (rosacea erythemato-telangiectatica, copper fin, couperose)-
    • Those affected suffer from reddened facial skin that burns, stings or itches. This reddening disappears spontaneously, but remains permanently in the later course.
  • Stage 2 (papulopustular rosacea)-
    • In addition to the reddening of the skin and enlarged vessels, nodules (papules) and pus-filled vesicles (pustules) develop
  • Stage 3 (Rosacea hypertrophica)-
    • The connective tissue and the sebum glands grow stronger. Especially in men
