Acne rosacea on the face of a 50-year-old woman. This condition is a reddening of the skin of unknown cause, sometimes accompanied by pustules (pus-containing blisters) that resemble acne. 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.
