Matthew Trumble of England was just 28 years old when his first signs of rosacea developed -- three large, hard spots on his face. A confident young man, Trumble assumed the problem would just sort itself out, so he left it alone.
However, the condition began to spread across his face. "It became harrowing," he said.
"When my rosacea was at its worst, I got very depressed and didn't even want to go outside or speak to anyone," Trumble said. "Even worse, I got very little attention from the ladies."
