All About Rosacea

January 8, 2016

Many people are not aware they have Rosacea until it's too late. This can affect both men and women, but it is more commonly seen in women. Rosacea is a chronic and potentially life-disruptive disorder primarily of the facial skin, often characterized by flare-ups and remissions. In some cases, rosacea may also occur on the neck, chest, scalp or ears. It may also appear chronically as a redness on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead. Rosacea can affect all skin types, but individuals with fair skin who tend to flush or blush easily are most susceptible. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rosacea includes at least one of the following primary signs, and various secondary signs may also develop.

 

 

  • Flushing

    • Many people with rosacea have a history of frequent blushing or flushing. This facial redness may come and go, and is often the earliest sign of the disorder.

 

  • Persistent Redness

    • Persistent facial redness is the most common individual sign of rosacea, and may resemble a blush or sunburn that does not go away.

 

  • Bumps and Pimples

    • Small red solid bumps or pus-filled pimples often develop. While these may resemble acne, blackheads are absent and burning or stinging may occur.

 

  • Visible Blood Vessels

    • In many people with rosacea, small blood vessels become visible on the skin.
