The "important features" of the new system (xerosis, early age of onset, and atopy) add support to the diagnosis, and the "associated features," (keratosis pilaris and atypical vascular responses) are suggestive of a diagnosis, but are not specific.
Keratosis pilaris consists of follicular-based papules with variable erythema.
The trial also excluded a number of patients, including those with three or more rosaceatic papules or pustules; more than five prominent telangiectases in the treatment area (except on the sides of the nose); intense flushing in response to a few triggers (such as postmenopausal hot flashes or certain foods); papulopustular, phymatous, or ocular rosacea; rosacea conglobata; rosacea fulminans; isolated rhinophyma; isolated pustulosis of the chin; and skin conditions that resembled rosacea, such as peri-oral dermatitis and facial keratosis pilaris.
