Acne rosacea on the skin of a woman's face. This reddening of the skin is of unknown cause and may be accompanied by pustules (pus-containing blisters) that resemble acne. The condition usually starts with a temporary flushing of the face, for example after drinking alcohol. It then develops into a permanent reddening of the skin. One possible cause is overuse of corticosteroid creams. Treatment is with a long-term course of antibiotics, but the condition can recur for many years before disappearing completely.
