Symptoms may appear during the early 20s; but usually, they are seen in 30-60 years’ age group. Women suffer more than men but their symptoms are less severe than men’s. Acne Rosacea is not contagious and cannot spread from one person to another. Symptoms of this condition are mild and antibiotics usually work on them.
