Rosacea is a common skin disorder that primarily affects the skin, though it can affect the eyes as well.
Rosacea can cause redness and pimples. The redness is first found around the nose and cheeks, and with time it can spread to the forehead, chin, ears, chest, and back. Other symptoms of rosacea include highly visible blood vessels, acne-like breakouts, thickening skin, and swelling of the nose.
The causes of rosacea are not always well-understood. Rosacea is most commonly found in people with fair skin and a tendency to blush or flush more easily than other people. Women are affected more than men, but men experience more severe symptoms when affected. Scientists believe the following factors play a role on who gets rosacea: genetics, skin mites or fungus, blood vessel disorders, hormonal fluctuation, and certain medications.
1. LEFT UNTREATED
Rosacea can become more noticeable if left untreated. Flushing can become permanent redness on the face, spider veins can show more prominently on the cheeks, and many people develop acne-like breakouts. Concealing the flare-ups with make-up is difficult and the products used can worsen rosacea symptoms.
