What is Rosacea?
Rosacea (pronounced roh-ZAY-sha) is an extremely common skin condition afflicting around 5% of the population at any given time.
It has been found that people with fair skin are more prone to develop rosacea and that more women than men are more frequently diagnosed with the condition.
While rosacea is not contagious, if left untreated the condition can rapidly become much worse and can lead to not only significant physiological problems but sufferers can develop psychological, social and occupational issues as well.
It is therefore very important that the correct rosacea treatment is undertaken as soon as possible.
How do I know I have it?
Rosacea can present in a number of different ways and can include any or all of the follwing symptoms:
- Facial flushing
- Burning cheeks, nose or eyelids
- Persistent redness in the cheek, chin, nose and/or forehead.
- Inflamed bumps and lumps on the affected areas - not necessarily pimples
- Dry, warm or hot flaking areas on the face that are sensitive to the touch and other stimuli.
- Patches of broken blood vessel on the skin of the face - often on the cheeks and around/on the nose
