Rosacea can affect both men and women however you are right in thinking the incidence is higher in females.

The typical candidate for Rosacea is usually a fair skin (type 1) Caucasian female between the ages of 30-60. However certain types of Rosacea such as a phymatous (nose) is more common in men.
