Can anyone get rosacea?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD
Cardiology (Cardiovascular Disease)
Women are more likely to be diagnosed with rosacea. However, men seem to be diagnosed with more severe cases of this skin condition. Rosacea causes skin on the face and, to a lesser extent, the ears, neck, and other parts of the body, to turn red and ruddy looking. Over time, untreated rosacea may cause skin to become swollen and develop pimple-like bumps. Men may be more likely to put off treatment, which might be why they often have more serious cases of rosacea.
