BACKGROUND: Rosacea is a chronic and common cutaneous condition characterised by symptoms of facial flushing and a broad spectrum of clinical signs. The clinical presentation for rosacea is varied, and there are four primary subtypes, which may overlap - erythrotelangiectatic, inflammatory, phymatous and ocular. It is important to recognise the different subtypes because of the differences in therapy.

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this article is to provide evidence-based clinical updates to clinicians, specifically general practitioners (GPs), to assist with their everyday practice, and effective assessment and treatment of rosacea.

DISCUSSION: Therapeutic modalities are chosen on the basis of the subtypes and clinical features identified; often a combination of these therapies is required.
