Rosacea

If you have pinkish patches of skin on your face, it could be a sign that there's an inflammation. The condition goes by the name rosacea and affects nearly 50 million people in America alone! It typically appears around age 30-50 with frequent flare ups between cycles lasting weeks or months at time until they subside again only to return later down road for some unknown reason (maybe because our body has adapted).
