Rosacea subtypes


The standard classification system done by the National Rosacea Society Expert Committee establishes the following subtypes of rosacea:


Subtype 1: Flushing, persistent redness, vascular lines


Subtype 2: Persistent redness, swelling, bumps and pimples, burning sensation


Subtype 3: Thickening skin and enlargement, normally in nose area


Subtype 4: Eye irritation, burning sensation and red eyelids

The different subtypes of rosacea can have mild to severe symptoms. The latest research recommends that to be diagnosed with rosacea a patient must present persistent redness or phymatous changes. Additionally, two or more primary features are also considered diagnostic of rosacea.
