Purpose and Scope

The overall objective of the guideline is to provide up-to-date, evidence-based recommendations for the management of rosacea. The document aims to: (i) offer an appraisal of all relevant literature up to February 2020 focusing on any key developments; (ii) address important, practical clinical questions relating to the primary guideline objective; and (iii) provide guideline recommendations and, if appropriate, research recommendations.

The guideline is presented as a detailed review with highlighted recommendations for practical use in primary care and in the clinic, in addition to an updated Patient Information Leaflet [available on the British Association of Dermatologists' (BAD) website:].


This guideline does not cover the diagnosis of rosacea. The evidence supporting the recommendations does not include evidence that is specific to children.
