What is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a skin condition characterized by persistent redness or bumps on the face, cheeks, nose, or chin. Rosacea is most common among people with fair skin between the ages of 30 and 60. For reasons still unknown, rosacea is more prevalent among women but the condition is more severe in men. It is a progressive skin disease in which the symptoms worsens over time and, though there is no known cure for rosacea, there are ways it can be treated.
What does Rosacea look like?
Rosacea presents itself as a prominent redness of the cheeks, chin or nose, often giving the sufferer the appearance of having been out in the cold for an extended period of time. It appears in a variety of forms: erythematotelangiectatic rosacea, producing background redness and broken capillaries; papulopustular rosacea, which is caused by inflammation and produces pustules or pink to red bumps and in very severe cases, thickening of the nose, a condition called rhinophyma. Rosacea in its advanced stages can make the skin turn a deep red color and the eyes may become red and inflamed, also known as ocular rosacea.
What causes Rosacea?
While there is no clinically proven cause or spectrum of causes for rosacea, consuming certain foods and liquids may cause the unwanted symptoms. Exposure to extreme hot or cold or stress may also trigger rosacea symptoms. Doctors suspect rosacea may be the result of a vascular disorder or a microscopic mite known as demodex folliculorum commonly found in the skin. Certain bacteria may also increase gastrin levels which may stimulate skin flushing. Family history may also play a role.
