What is rosacea?
Rosecea is a long-term skin condition that typically affects the face. It is usually most apparent in the cheeks, nose and chin resulting in redness and small superficial broken blood vessels.
In its early stages rosacea can appear as defused redness with small red bumps. The skin flushes easily and redness is often triggered by:
- extreme weather conditions
- spicy foods
- prolonged UV exposure
- certain topical medication
What causes rosacea?
Experts are not entirely sure what causes rosacea, but it usually affects the over 30s. It’s thought abnormalities in the blood vessels of the face cause the flushing, persistent redness, and visible blood vessels.
