Rosacea: Common Locations |

Nose, cheeks, chin and forehead are the most common locations of rosacea. Natalie Suarez, Physician Assistant with Sunset Dermatology, says it is most common in the middle-aged group population, between the ages of 30 and 50.

She also explains females are at an increased risk of developing rosacea; but when men get it, they get it more severe. She points out genetics does not play a huge role, but they are finding more evidence that patients with family members with a history of rosacea have increased incidence of rosacea.
