Why is it Important for you to Watch out for Rosacea?

Millions of people across the globe are affected by rosacea. The impact of rosacea can be minor or it can be seriously debilitating. The typical signs of rosacea include redness on the nose, cheeks, or forehead of an individual. This redness can be nothing more than a blush, or it can be dark red. Rosacea can also be accompanied by bumps or pimples. Some people with rosacea also experience itching or a “hot” feeling in the affected area.

The Look of Rosacea

 When rosacea flares, some people look as if they have just finished running a marathon and look flushed with red areas on their face. Friends, coworkers, or family members may be concerned about how rosacea looks, thinking it could be a serious disease or a symptom of something direr. For many years, people with rosacea were thought to be alcoholics with a red nose. This is not necessarily true because not everyone with rosacea even drinks alcohol.

Who Can Get Rosacea? 

Anyone can have some degree of rosacea. This condition is typically present in people with lighter skin or people who blush more easily. It is thought that the blood vessels at the skin surface seem more sensitive, which causes rosacea to appear, although this is only theory. Children of any age may have rosacea.  Teenagers and young adults can also have this condition. Adults and senior citizens may find that rosacea can become more apparent as they age.

What Causes Rosacea? 

There is no definite cause for rosacea. Various theories are being researched to help in identifying the root cause of this condition. In the interim, there are several “triggers” that may launch a flare up of rosacea for some people. These triggers include exercise, exposure to sun, dry weather, or an extreme change in temperature.
