These symptoms of rosacea affect the self-esteem of Australians with rosacea, reducing their quality of life.

Rosacea is typically characterised by a cycle of relapses and remissions.
A retrospective study of 48 Australian rosacea patients previously diagnosed with rosacea in Australia found that 58% still had active rosacea, with an average ongoing duration of 11 years.
