Answer

The condition most typically has a chronic course with intermittent exacerbations and eruptions of symptomatic disease. Seborrheic dermatitis can be associated with symptoms of scalp itching, flaking, and oily skin. Rosacea can be associated with a red and swollen nose (rhinophyma), facial flushing, broken and distended vessels in the face, pustules, oily skin, food and environmental intolerances, and eye irritation.
