    The first sign is rosy cheeks. This will progress into red patches that will appear on the skin for a few hours or days at a time. As the condition progresses, the red patches may not go away at all.

    When rosacea first appears, many people mistake the condition for sunburn, windburn and even acne. They wait for the condition to clear upon its own so they delay seeking treatment. It is important to seek treatment as soon as signs appear. The earlier treatment is started, the quicker your rosacea will be brought under control.
