How is rosacea diagnosed?
There is no test needed to diagnose rosacea. Typically, a doctor can diagnose rosacea simply by examining your skin and reviewing your medical history. However, you may have tests to rule out other conditions that can sometimes cause symptoms similar to those of rosacea.
Who gets rosacea?

Does rosacea hurt?
Rosacea affects everyone a little differently, so it really depends on the type of rosacea, the severity, and the person. Some people with erythemato-telangiectactic rosacea (ETR)—characterized by flushing or redness of the face—complain of their skin being very sensitive and stinging or burning.
What triggers rosacea?
There are many potential triggers for rosacea flare-ups, including but not limited to hot drinks, spicy foods, alcoholic beverages, extreme temperatures (hot or cold), sun or wind exposure, emotions, exercise, and certain medications or cosmetic products.
