Rosacea

About

Rosacea is a skin condition that primarily affects the central face, and is often characterized by flare-ups and remissions. Major signs of rosacea are persistent flushing-like facial redness, bumps and pimples and visible blood vessels.

Causes of Rosacea

It is thought to be tied to a mix of genetic and environmental variables, including stress, sun exposure, and specific triggers like alcohol or spicy meals. Rosacea is characterized by redness and swelling on the face due to dilated and irritated blood vessels. In some instances, rosacea can also result in the development of tiny red bumps or pus-filled pimples. Rosacea cannot be cured, but it can be controlled with the right skincare and medical care. Avoiding factors that aggravate rosacea, using moderate skincare products devoid of harsh components, and using sunscreen are all key.

  • Issue with blood vessels becoming more visible when exposed to the sun.
  • Intake of alcohol and skin products containing alcohol or methanol can also aggravate rosacea symptoms.
  • Bacteria and a dirty environment can aggregate rosacea.
  • Drinking tea or coffee and eating spicy foods cause rosacea to flare up.
