The difference between acne and rosacea

Acne rosacea is the term that is most commonly given to adults with acne. Most adults, particularly above the ages of 30 or 40, do not get acne the same way as adolescents and young adults.

There are some minor differences:

While adolescent acne can be coarse, bumpy, moderately shiny and/or severely cystic, rosacea is typically much more mild. It's small reddish acne that is more rash-like in nature than teen acne. It is also identified through redness in the eyes and a flushed red face. Although rosacea is not as widely discussed as teen acne, it is very common and quite manageable. Just book in to see one of our qualified Dermatologists, to get you on your way to clear skin.
