Rosacea is a common chronic inflammatory disorder which occurs most often in middle-aged women characterized by symptoms of facial flushing and a spectrum of clinical sings including erythema, telangiectasia, burning, coarseness of skin and an inflammatory papulopustular eruption resembling acne. The aim of the study was to evaluate the quality of life in people with rosacea and healthy controls. Forty people with rosacea and 40 people without skin lesions were the subjects of the study. The quality of life was measured using standard questionnaire SF-36 (Short Form 36 Health Survey). The obtained results revealed that, in comparison to the control group, patients with rosacea presented reduced quality of life in subgroups: general health, vitality, emotional sphere, physical functioning, mental health and bodily pain. Outcomes show that rosacea plays a an important role in patient's quality of life and revealed the need to cooperate with psychologists and support groups.
