Rosacea is a benign but relatively common skin condition which usually begins in adulthood.
Rosacea starts as a facial redness that may resemble a sunburn or unexplained blush on the cheeks, nose or chin that comes and goes. As time goes on the colour intensifies and becomes ruddier in appearance. Eventually visible blood vessels may appear. Without appropriate treatment, bumps and pimples often develop, worsening over time, in severe cases, typically in men, the nose may become swollen and enlarged.
There are many over the counter products that claim to treat rosacea, however these are of little help past the initial phases of Rosacea. Rosacea is a chronic and often progressive medical disorder, so if you are experiencing the below warning signs you should see an expert.
Warning signs of rosacea:
- The sensation of heat or burning of the face particularly with exposure to emotional stress, environmental extremes (heat, sun and wind), certain facial products, spicy food or certain liquids (alcohol, hot drinks).
- Redness on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead.
- Small visible blood vessels on the face.
- Bumps or pimples on the face.
- Irritated eyes.
