Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Acne rosacea. Red skin rash and pustules across a 51-year-old woman's lower face due to acne rosacea. Acne rosacea is a chronic skin disease occurring in adults. It is most common in middle- aged women. The blood vessels of the face enlarge, resulting in a flushed appearance, the cause of which is unknown. Rosacea usually begins with temporary flushing, often after drinking alcohol or eating spicy food. It can then 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.
