According to the National Rosacea Society, some 16 million people in the United States have rosacea. Many of them have the mildest type of this skin condition—erythematotelangiectatic rosacea.

Erythematotelangiectatic rosacea causes flushing, redness and, sometimes, visible blood vessels on the face.
