Introduction to Rosacea

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that causes redness, inflammation, and visible blood vessels on the face. It can also cause small bumps and pustules that look like acne. The exact cause of rosacea is not fully understood, but it is thought to be related to a combination of genetic and environmental factors. While there is no cure for rosacea, treatments such as topical and oral medications, laser therapy, and lifestyle modifications can help manage its symptoms. There are various forms that rosacea can take, whether that is redness, blushing, pustules, small red visible blood vessels, and raised spots or lumps.

Rosacea can also appear on various parts of the body, but the most common area is the face – cheeks, nose and around the eyes. There are also many contributing factors which cause rosacea: diet, exercise, alcohol, caffeine, hot drinks, sunlight, stress and also hereditary factors.

Factors To Consider

While the direct cause of rosacea is not yet fully understood, we know that there are some intrinsic and environmental factors which can trigger the symptoms of this skin condition. Alcohol, spicy foods, caffeine and cheese can all activate a flare-up, while aerobic exercise increases the severity for shorter periods. Age, skin type and genetics can also play a major role in the likelihood of being affected.

Up until recently, rosacea was believed to only affect those of white ethnicity, but it has since been proven that patients of colour are also prone to this condition. If left alone, rosacea will worsen over time, making it important to seek medical advice to treat such a condition in a timely manner. Rosacea affects more women than men, but men tend to experience more severe symptoms.
