Rosacea is a common condition of the facial skin that may be confused with acne.  It occurs most commonly in lighter skin types and many patients have a tendency to blush easily.  The cause of rosacea is not completely understood.  However, sunlight, the immune system and the skin mite called demodex are known to play a role.  There are multiple treatments for rosacea including topical creams and oral medication.
