Concerns > Rosacea (Facial Redness)

Rosacea >

Rosacea can affect anyone. But it’s most common in people who have light skin. There’s no cure for rosacea, but treatment and an effective skincare regime can control and reduce the signs and symptoms.

Rosacea affects the face, typically involving the cheeks, nose, middle part of the forehead and the chin. It is usually symmetric, affecting both sides equally. The condition can flare up, with partial or complete improvement between flare-ups. You may have obvious symptoms for days, weeks, or longer and you can see improvement in your skin in between flare-ups. Some people notice that the symptoms are more severe in response to triggers, such as spicy food, sun exposure, or stress.

Rosacea Symptoms >

  • Facial redness: Rosacea usually causes a persistent redness in the central part of your face. Small blood vessels on your nose and cheeks often swell and become visible.
  • Swollen, red bumps: Many people with rosacea also develop pimples on their face that resemble acne. These bumps sometimes contain pus. Your skin may feel hot and tender.
  • Eye problems: Many people with rosacea also experience dry, irritated, swollen eyes and red, swollen eyelids. This is known as ocular rosacea. In some people, the eye symptoms precede the skin symptoms.
  • Enlarged nose: Over time, rosacea can thicken the skin on the nose, causing the nose to appear bulbous (rhinophyma). This occurs more often in men than in women.

Rosacea Triggers >

Although they’re not thought to be direct causes of the condition, several triggers have been identified that may make rosacea worse.

  • Exposure to sunlight
  • Stress
  • Strenuous exercise
  • Hot or cold weather
  • Hot drinks
  • Alcohol and caffeine
  • Certain foods, such as spicy foods

Rosacea Treatments >

Any long-term (chronic) condition can have an adverse psychological effect, but rosacea can be particularly troublesome as it affects your appearance. This can change how you feel about yourself and how you interact with others.

Avoiding your individual triggers and using an effective skincare regime, suggested by a skincare expert are the best ways of controlling your symptoms.
