Types of Rosacea


There are four different types of rosacea:

Facial Redness TYPE 1 
Facial redness: the most common of the four, affecting over ¾ of people with rosacea.
Facial Bumps TYPE 2
Bumps (papules) or pimples (pustules) often mistaken as adult acne: these come and go and include red patches.
Nose Thickening TYPE 3
Skin thickening: excess tissue often results in enlargement of the nose and irregular surface nodules (bump-like lesions). May occur in combination or after Types 1 and 2.
Red Eyes TYPE 4
Watery or bloodshot eyes, tearing and burning, swollen eyelids, recurrent styes.
