Rosacea is a long-term condition that affects the skin. It is most often found in the middle third of the face and is the result of capillary hyperactivity. The condition begins as persistent flushing, leads to the appearance of telangiectasia (tiny blood vessels) and can result in swelling of the face. As the condition progresses, the skin becomes ruddier and the rosacea can inflame larger areas of the face. Rosacea cannot be cured but it can be controlled.
Rosacea may sometimes be referred to as “acne rosacea”, but it is very different from acne. It does not cause whiteheads, blackheads, cysts or lumps, but instead it may result in dome-shaped pustules. The most common characteristics of this skin condition are:
- Frequent blushing or flushing
- The appearance of broken capillaries
- Dry and flaky facial skin
- Sensitivities to makeup, spicy food and alcohol
- Overall redness on the nose, forehead, cheeks and chin.
- Swelling of the face
