Flushing is the sign during the early of rosascea. It spreads from the face down to the neck and chest. Sometimes the itchy and and unpleasant feeling take place during the flushing process. 

Persistent redness

Sensitive blood vessels dilate very easily to topical triggers (touch), and some other physical stimuli, such as sunlight. Many mistakenly refer to this as "sensitive skin", but with rosacea it is sensitive blood vessels and not sensitive skin cells which cause this.

Persistent redness

Often time, the flushing process may eventually be followed by bouts of persistent facial redness. The redness, itself may not go away. This occurs due to hundreds of tiny blood vessels near the surface of the facial skin dilate (expand).

If the signs and symptoms of rosacea get worse, small blood vessels on the nose and cheeks swell and become visible. The skin of the face may become blotchy, like the skin of some alcoholics. But, it is caused by inflammation of tiny blood vessels in the surface of the skin, and not alcohol. 

Rhinophyma - Excess facial skin around the nose

Severe rosacea can result in the thickening of facial skin, especially around the nose. The nose can become bulbous and enlarged (rhinophyma). This is a very rare complication, and tends to affect males much more than females.

Ocular rosacea

The eyes may have a burning, gritty sensation that makes them bloodshot. It seems that the eyelid got inflamed and appear scaly, causing conjunctivitis. In very rare cases, the vision may become blurred. About 50% of patients with rosacea experience some kind of eye irritation or symptoms.

Facial swelling

Excess fluid and proteins leak out of the blood vessels and eventually overwhelm the lymphatic system that cannot drain the leakage away fast enough. This results in fluid buildup in the facial skin.
