What is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes red bumps and flushing primarily on the central face. It affects nearly 16 million Americans each year. The disorder is more frequently diagnosed in women but tends to be more severe in men. Symptoms of rosacea can include:
- Persistent redness and visible broken blood vessels on the cheeks, nose, and central face.
- Small, red bumps that can resemble pimples.
- Red, bulb-shaped nose with thickening of the skin.
- Irritated, red eyes that have a gritty sensation.
If you believe you have rosacea and are interested in learning more about treatment, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with one of our expert dermatology providers at your earliest convenience.
What Causes Rosacea?
While researchers are still unsure what causes rosacea, most patients find that their flare-ups are triggered by alcohol, stress, eating spicy or acidic foods, drinking hot beverages, sun exposure, and heat. Rosacea can affect all segments of the population and all skin types, but individuals with fair skin who tend to flush, or blush easily are believed to be at greatest risk. There is also evidence that rosacea may tend to run in families and may be especially prevalent in people of northern or eastern European descent.
