Acne as symptom of a long-term skin disease

I’ve seen people with acne but not as bad as the image below. The skin condition is called Rosacea. It is a long-term disease that affects the face and sometimes the eye area. It is characterized by redness and pimples. Women and fair skinned individuals are likely to develop it.

A known entertainment writer and columnist had untreated Rosacea before she suffered from full-blown rhinophyma that caused her nose to grow big. But I read from an online publication that she already underwent an operation.

Until now health experts are not sure what causes Rosacea. But a person is predisposed to the skin condition if a relative has it. Rosacea is not life-threatening and can be cured with medicine including rosacea natural treatment and surgery.

Aside from acne, other symptoms are flushing or frequent redness of the face; small, red lines under the skin; swollen nose; thick skin in the forehead, chin and cheeks; red, dry, itchy eyes and sometimes blurry vision.
