Vascular rosacea is believed to be the result of over-dilated capillaries that are transparent through the skin causing the visible red and web-like appearance.
Inflammatory rosacea also known as acne rosacea is a combination of redness, irritation, sensitivity and bumps combined with the underlying core issue of a disorder of the sebaceous glands or the oil glands.
