Rosacea has probably been one of the most misdiagnosed and misunderstood skin disorders in the history of the human race. The symptoms of Rosacea are so variable that many people have been treated for it when they were in fact suffering from some other skin disorder and many people who had rosacea were treated for common acne. The term Acne Rosacea was a common medical diagnosis a few years ago. Now it is no longer considered a valid disorder under that name.
Most severe skin disorders put fear into Aestheticians, who have been taught to refer the client to a Dermatologist immediately, the feeling being, that the Doctor will magically sort the problem out with treatments that are beyond the therapists skills. Rosacea, however, does not fall into this category.
