Rosacea

Rosacea has multiple phases, beginning with flushing of the skin, followed by redness, followed by the development of small blood vessels visible in the skin. The later stage is exhibited by the red papules on this person's cheeks, nose, forehead, and chin. Underlying redness and small blood vessels are also seen.
