Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that is diagnosed frequently in women. It can occur at any age but is most commonly diagnosed in women aged between 30 and 50 years. The National Rosacea Society organizes rosacea into 4 primary subtypes: erythematotelangiectatic, papulopustular, phymatous, and ocular. There are no diagnostic tests to confirm the diagnosis of rosacea, and skin biopsy is warranted solely to rule out alternative diagnoses. While there is no known cure for rosacea, a number of pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic management strategies are available. Management is tailored to disease subtype, severity, and emotional impact as well as to clinical response and patient preferences.
