Rosacea

Rosacea is a skin disease that causes redness on your nose, cheeks, chin, and forehead. Some people may have little bumps and pimples. The redness may come and go, but it is different from having a ruddy complexion or having a sunburn. Rosacea can also cause burning and soreness in the eyes.
