Will cyclic rosacea affect the rest of my body?

Cyclic rosacea is uncomfortable. During flare-ups, and especially in the advanced stages of the condition, your eyes may become particularly irritated and distracting and your nose may become swollen and bulbous.

If managed properly, cyclic rosacea can have a minimal impact on your overall health.
