Types of Rosacea
There are four types of rosacea: vascular, inflammatory, phymatous, and ocular. Natalie Suarez, Physician Assistant with Sunset Dermatology, says vascular rosacea is when patients are presenting with that persistent facial redness, episodes of flushing and visible blood vessels in the skin. The inflammatory rosacea is when patients are also developing an acne like an eruption.
She explains the phymatous rosacea is when the skin becomes thickened and it can cause the skin to look very bumpy in appearance. And the ocular rosacea is when patients get what looks like conjunctivitis, it is redness of the inside of the eye and on the eyelid margin.
