There are several forms of rosacea: acne-like red bumps of the cheeks and nose, diffuse facial redness, and dilated capillaries are common features.  Flushing and skin sensitivity can also be seen.  Often intake of caffeine, alcohol or spicy foods can exacerbate the skin condition.  Sun exposure can also flare rosacea.  Rosacea can also affect the eyes causing irritation and redness.  While the exact cause is unknown and there is no cure for rosacea, topical agents, oral antibiotics, and laser treatments can safely and effectively control rosacea symptoms.
