Studies and research has shown that it is the treatment through tropical steroids that can aggravate the disease. Therefore such an application either in the form of ointment or injection should be avoided.

There are four identified types of this disease. It is not necessary that only one type of infection is present in one patient. However many patients may have more than one type of the disease present on the skin. In one type of Rosacea there is an appearance of permanent redness of skin along with the accumulation of blood vessels in visible areas of skin. Sometimes there occurs an enlargement of nose along with the redness and dryness of eyes.
