Do you suffer from flushed cheeks, often looking like you’re embarrassed, sunburnt or having a breakout? Many people incorrectly diagnose this skin condition as an allergic reaction or acne. If you have redness of the face, neck or chest, which can occur with small red bumps, you may have an inflammatory skin condition called rosacea. It is common for this skin condition to improve and then flare up again repeatedly. If left untreated, it can worsen over time. In this article we look at the symptoms and treatment options for managing it.
Rosacea can effect anyone, however it is more common in females with fair skin, between 30 and 60 years of age. A family history will also make you more susceptible. Symptoms include:
- Blushing or to flush in the face
- Sensitive skin (face), can be irritated by cosmetic or sunscreen products
- Acne or pimples
- Facial redness, often extending to the neck and chest
- Lumps under the skin
- Enlarged capillaries, also called telangiectasia
- Eye problems – dry or irritated eyes, red or swollen eyelids
What Causes Rosacea?
While the causes are not yet known and there is no permanent cure for this skin condition, it can be aggravated by increased blood flow to the surface of the skin, for example from alcohol consumption, sun exposure, hot/ spicy foods, hot drinks, embarrassment, anger, stress, exercise and some medications.
