What are the types of rosacea?
Mostly, rosacea is classified into four types. Some patients only get one type, while others may get all four.
- Ocular rosacea
When you feel burning, stinging, itching or tearing in your eye or eyes, you may have ocular rosacea.
- Inflammatory rosacea
If there is continuous redness on your face with red bumps and pimples, you may have inflammatory rosacea. These bumps are different from acne.
- Vascular rosacea
If you are experiencing frequent flushing and chronic redness on your face, or if facial blood vessels are visible, you may have vascular rosacea.
If you have a swelling, lumpy and red nose, you may have rhinophyma. Excessive thickened skin may grow on the nose. It occurs more frequently in men.
