How will cyclic rosacea affect my quality of life?

Cyclic rosacea won't seriously threaten your health, but it can affect your self-esteem. Because rosacea affects a person's facial appearance, people who have rosacea often become embarrassed about how they look. They might become more introverted and avoid going out in public. In fact, in a survey, 41 percent of responders said that they had canceled a social engagement because of their rosacea. On the bright side, 70 percent of responders said that they gained back social confidence and self-esteem after receiving treatment.
