Will all my rosacea symptoms appear at the same time?

Not necessarily. Rosacea tends to affect people in three phases, which become more serious as they progress. In the first stage, pre-rosacea, the only symptom you will likely notice is frequent blushing or warmth in your face, which will eventually turn into a lasting redness. It is in the second stage, vascular rosacea, in which you will begin to see blood vessels under your skin. It is not until the third stage, inflammatory rosacea, that bumps or swelling of the nose will occur. If the eyes become affected, it is typically later in the progression.
