What Is Rosacea?

The cause of rosacea is currently unknown; however, it is believed that genetics or environment may play a role in its progression. It occurs more commonly in fair-skinned people, such as Caucasians, in people who are prone to blushing, and in middle-aged women. People with a family history of rosacea also have a higher risk of developing the condition.

Symptoms of Rosacea

The symptoms of rosacea tend to involve only the face. Flares or attacks of rosacea are interspersed in between by periods of clear skin. Before the condition develops, symptoms such as blushing or flushing may occur, called pre-rosacea. The following are the characteristic symptoms associated with rosacea:

Red patches on the face.

Facial flushing.

Visible blood vessels on the areas of the face (telangiectasia).

Nose may become red and bulb like in shape.

Tiny red bumps or pustules which can be similar to acne.

Red, inflamed eyes which can be painful..

What Causes Rosacea?

Several factors may play a role in triggering rosacea. These triggers work by increasing the blood flow to the face, and include the following:

Feeling stressed, embarrassed, or angry.

Eating spicy or hot foods.

Exposure to the sun.

Exercise.

Alcohol consumption.

 

Diagnosing Rosacea

The diagnosis of rosacea largely relies on examination of the skin, and the patient’s medical history, so no specific tests are usually needed.
