Rosacea is an inflammatory chronic skin condition that can affect both men and women. As a rule, rosacea usually begins at around the age of 30 and happens when certain blood vessels, usually in the facial area enlarge. Rosacea appears as facial redness and can also produce small, red, pustules (bumps) in extreme cases. Rosacea is often mistaken for acne or eczema and can worsen over time if not treated.
Rosacea is a relapsing condition, which means there will be periods when the symptoms can be particularly bad and then followed by periods when there are very little or no symptoms. These symptoms can appear most prominently on the forehead, cheeks and the nose.
Triggers for rosacea
In most cases, rosacea responds to certain triggers and these can vary from person to person. Triggers can range from stress and alcohol (especially red wine), to the weather and certain foods – spicy foods can cause a reaction. Knowing what your own triggers are will be the first step to managing your condition and avoiding flare-ups.
We suggest keeping a photo diary of your redness; figuring out your triggers based on how your skin looks and feels, and what happened in your day, can begin to reduce the occurrence and severity of your rosacea.
