Redness-Rosacea

Rosacea is a type of non-contagious and chronic skin inflammation that typically affects the face. It causes long-term redness on your face and might also cause enlarged blood vessels and small, pus-filled bumps. Rosacea (pronounced “row-zay-sha”) is a common inflammatory skin condition that causes redness on your face or other parts of your body, including your eyes. Different types of conditions can cause pimples and swelling on your skin. This is a lifelong condition without a cure.

What causes Rosacea? The cause of rosacea isn’t known. It’s likely that a number of factors are involved, including:

  • Genetics
  • Environmental factors
  • A reaction to the demodex mite — (a microscopic mite that lives on the skin, also known as the ‘eyelash mite’)
  • A condition that affects your blood vessels, immune or nervous system.
  • An infection: The H. pylori bacteria can cause an infection. Studies suggest that people who had this infection can develop rosacea.
  • Protein malfunctioning: The cathelicidin protein protects your skin from infection. If the protein isn’t working as it should, you’ll experience symptoms of rosacea.

Preventions:  Since the cause of rosacea is unknown, you can’t prevent the condition. However, you can reduce your risk of having rosacea flare by identifying and avoiding things that trigger your symptoms.

  • This can be weather: sunlight, hot weather or cold weather
  • Things you eat or drink: alcohol, hot food and drinks, spicy foods
  • How you’re feeling: anger, embarrassment, stress
  • Other things, including exercise, certain medicines (corticosteroids), some skin care products, hot baths

Signs of Rosacea:

  • Facial Redness – Flushing and persistent redness. Visible blood vessels may also applear.
  • Bumps and Pimples – Persistent facial redness with papules and pustules (bumps and pimples)
  • Skin Thickening – Skin thickening and enlargement (phymatous changes), usually around the nose.
  • Eye Irritations – Watery or bloodshot appearance, irritation, burning or stinging. Also known as ocular rosacea.
