Why can rosacea worsen over time?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD

Rosacea can worsen over time if you don't seek proper treatment. At first, rosacea usually appears as a reddening of the skin on the cheeks, forehead, nose, or elsewhere on the face. In some cases, skin on the ears, neck, chest, or other parts of the body may be affected, too.

If you have any signs of rosacea, see your doctor.
