Rosacea is an inflammatory, chronic-recurring dermatitis of the face. It is common in adult females with I–II phototype. It is characterized clinically by the presence of one or more of the following features: flushing, erythema, telangiectasia, papules, pustules, and nodules. Ocular involvement can also occur. Etiopathogenetic role of Demodex folliculorum and Helicobacter pylori has not been confirmed. The National Rosacea Society Expert Committee divided the disease into four clinical varieties (rosacea characterized by flushing and erythema, with or without telangiectasia, papulopustular rosacea, phymatous rosacea, and ocular rosacea). According to Cochrane, topical metronidazole and azelaic acid as well as oral tetracyclines and metronidazole are effective in the treatment of rosacea. Literature data about the use of peelings are very poor. In some patients, salicylic acid, azelaic acid, and mandelic acid were used.
