Rosacea is common but poorly understood long-term skin condition that mainly affects the face. It’s more common in women and people with lighter skin, but symptoms can be worse in men. Treatment can help with symptoms.
Symptoms of rosacea include redness (blushing) across your nose, cheeks, forehead and chin that comes and goes. And a burning or stinging feeling when using water or skincare products. The redness may be harder to see on darker skin.

At Monkbar Pharmacy, our pharmacists are trained to give a range of treatments for rosacea. Some of which is normally ‘prescription only’, if deemed appropriate by the pharmacist.
