Rosacea is a skin disease that causes redness on your nose, cheeks, chin, and forehead, and in some people, little bumps and pimples. People with rosacea may have dry, red, and irritated eyes, and in rare cases, an enlarged nose that is swollen and bumpy.

Rosacea is most common in fair-skinned people. Rosacea cannot be cured. But it can be managed with medicines. The redness may also be treated with lasers and intense-pulsed light (IPL). The rare cases of rhinophyma, where the nose is enlarged and lumpy, may be treated with cosmetic surgery.
