Rosacea typically begins after age 30, according to the National Rosacea Society. But some symptoms, such as flushing or blushing, may be present before that and initially could be regarded as a “natural glow.” By one’s thirties, however, that glow has often become a more persistent or even permanent redness on the cheeks, nose, chin, or forehead, and sometimes also on the neck, chest, scalp, and ears. Symptoms of rosacea may also include visible blood vessels and acne-like bumps and pimples that may sting or burn. Symptoms may have a pattern of flaring and clearing up, or may remain permanently.
