Rosacea dermatitis

Rosacea dermatitis is a chronic inflammatory disease of the skin. Symptoms generally include a red rash and swelling in the center of the face, accompanied by dryness and itching. The exact cause is unknown, but genetic and environmental factors are thought to be involved. Prolonged use of steroid preparations may also result in the appearance of rosacea-like dermatitis, a condition similar to rosacea.
