Caption: Rosacea. Red skin rash and pustules across a man's nose. This is due to a chronic skin disease known as rosacea or acne rosacea. The cause of the dis- order is unknown but can result from overuse of corticosteroid creams. In this case, the rosacea was brought on by an infection & over exposure to the elements. Rosacea usually begins with temporary flushing, often after drinking alcohol or eating spicy food. Then it may develop into a permanent redness of the skin, often accompanied by pustules resembling acne. Treatment involves a course of the antibiotic drug tetracycline, but does not cure the disorder. Rosacea tends to recur for up to 10 years and then disappears.
