Rosacea

Rosacea is characterized by excessive oiliness. The nose and cheeks are areas most frequently affected. The skin appears flushed, and will develop papules and pustules. If this condition is left untreated, the skin may become lumpy. Rosacea usually appears after age 35, and it is more common in females than males. Soothing treatments using botanicals such as chamomile, geranium, myrrh, peppermint, rose, sandlewood, tea tree and lavender are helpful. This condition may require consultation with a dermatologist.
