Rosacea can be a difficult skin condition but can be managed with a skincare routine. Red skin causes embarrassment, social anxiety, and often individuals miss out on opportunities due to self-esteem issues.
What is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that causes inflammation and red bumps, most commonly on the face. Rosacea is extremely common, affecting 1 in 20 Americans. Rosacea is known to run in the family, but sun damage is thought to worsen the condition. Some doctors even believe bacteria in an individual’s gut can trigger Rosacea flare ups. The leading causes of Rosacea are still not fully understood, and more research is needed to understand why some people develop the condition. Rosacea is more common among individuals with fair skin, but the severity of the condition varies depending on the person.
Rosacea typically starts to develop with redness on the nose, chin cheeks, or forehead. More severe cases cause the blood vessels in the face to burst and can lead to further redness throughout the face and neck area. Other symptoms include:
- Stinging and Burning
- Swollen Nose
- Dry patches of skin
- Oversized pore
