Symptoms and Causes of Rosacea

What are the Symptoms of Rosacea?

The National Rosacea Society defines Rosacea as a chronic disorder that is characterized by redness on the cheeks, nose, chin, forehead, neck, chest, scalp and other areas, as well as visible and dilated blood vessels in certain areas. Typically, more prevalent cases occur after age 30. Research has also indicated that more women develop rosacea than men, and more Caucasians have Rosacea than other ethnicities.photo rosacea nose

There are a few different types of Rosacea that afflict sufferers, including the following subtypes: facial redness, bumps and pimples, skin thickening, inflammation and eye irritation. In serious cases, Rosacea can cause permanent scarring and unsightly broken veins.  As it is a progressive condition it is always best to treat Rosacea as soon as possible to help avoid or limit any permanent damage to your skin.

 What Causes Rosacea?

While causes of Rosacea vary in each person, some factors that cause Rosacea are natural allergens, processed foods, mites, imbalanced enzymes and gastrointestinal types of bacteria. In addition, some types of alcohol, steroids, coffee, spicy foods, citrus foods, chocolate, vanilla, exposure to the sun and more are Rosacea triggers in some people. Many people also find that flare ups occur during times of stress of when they are feeling run down.

Rosacea has its ebbs and flows, with flare ups at certain times. Each individual is different, with various skin-irritation triggers, causes, recurring patterns and more. Treatment options for those with Rosacea include speaking with your doctor/physician; using medicated creams; managing your diet; avoiding and managing certain triggers (foods, weather, drugs, medical conditions, stress and anxiety, alcoholic beverages and certain skin-care products); taking care with cosmetics; keeping your face clean and figuring out the best home remedies for Rosacea.
