Rosacea is a condition of vasomotor instability characterized by facial erythema most notable in the central convex areas of the face, including the forehead, cheek, nose, and perioral and periocular skin. Rosacea tends to begin in childhood as common facial flushing, often in response to stress. A diagnosis beyond this initial stage of rosacea is unusual in the pediatric population. If a child is identified with the intermediate stage of rosacea, consisting of papules and pustules, an eye examination should be performed to rule out ocular manifestations. It may be beneficial to recognize children in the early stage of rosacea; however, it is uncertain if prophylactic treatment is necessary.
