Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes redness and visible blood vessels in your face. It often begins with a tendency to blush or flush more easily than others. The redness can slowly spread beyond the nose and cheeks to the forehead, chin and even the ears.
Rosacea, however, can cause more than just redness. In some cases it can mimic acne where it is referred to as papulopustular rosacea, minus the comedones. When it is associated with skin thickening and a bumpy texture, it is referred to as phymatous rosacea. In others, it may cause the eyes to be red and irritated with swollen eyelids resembling a stye (ocular rosacea).
There are many contributing factors to rosacea – diet, exercise, alcohol, caffeine, hot drinks, sunlight, stress and hereditary factors for example. Treatments generally need to be maintained for ongoing reduction of the rosacea.
