Rosacea

Approximately 14 million people in the United States have rosacea. The symptoms include redness, pimples, and sometimes thickening of the skin. In most cases, rosacea symptoms only affect facial skin. The redness of rosacea is triggered by expanding blood vessels. Common triggers are exercise, sun, wind, warm weather, stress, spicy food, alcohol, and hot showers. The condition is long term and usually affects people with fair skin. It is more common in people over thirty, and women, but rosacea can happen to anyone at any age. Rosacea is not contagious from skin to skin contact and uou will not catch rosacea from close contact with someone who has rosacea.

Someone with rosacea will experience frequent redness, usually on the forehead, nose, cheeks, and chin, which in some cases is accompanied by a burning sensation and swelling of the skin. Small red lines may also develop, which occur when blood vessels inside the skin increase in size. Pimples may also be present. The pimples may or may not be filled with pus, or they may be solid and painful.

There is no cure for rosacea, but there are treatments available to manage the bothersome symptoms of rosacea. Rosacea is not life threatening, but the condition can feel out of control and frustrating. If symptoms are not helped by home treatment, a doctor or dermatologist may be able help. Symptoms can come and go depending on climate and circumstances, and may progressively get worse over time. In severe cases, rosacea can have permanent side effects such as skin thickening, swelling of the nose nose, and vision loss.

In most cases a doctor can diagnose rosacea by sight and medical lab testing is unneeded. Management of rosacea may include topical or internal treatments. Medical surgeries are also available and can be performed depending on the individual’s symptoms.
