Everything You Need to Know About Neuropathic RosaceaAsk yourself what you really know about rosacea. Most people know the skin condition causes flushing and redness, pimples, and irritated skin. You may be less likely to know there are four specific subtypes:
- Erythematoelangiectatic – Known as type 1, this form of rosacea involves redness in the area of the cheeks, chin, and forehead.
- Ocular – This type of rosacea causes irritation and inflammation in the eyes. It can feel like you have an eyelash or speck of dirt in your eyes all the time.
- Papulopustular – This is type 2 rosacea. The redness and flushing of type 1 are usually present, but you also find your skin developing pimples.
- Phymatous – Phymatous is less common, but it's also one of the more embarrassing types of rosacea. Growths of thick skin appear on the nose and in other areas of the face. In some cases, it can look like warts.
