Rosacea

Rosacea is a harmless condition, but it may cause you to be self-conscious or embarrassed. Rosacea involves swelling of the blood vessels just under the skin. It can be described in many ways. Symptoms may include redness of the face, blushing or flushing easily or excessive spider-like blood vessels (telangiectasia) on the face. In more extreme cases, a red nose (called a bulbous nose), acne-like skin bumps that may ooze or crust, burning or heat sensation in the face, irritated, bloodshot or watery eyes may also be among the symptoms.

Additional Names for Rosacea

  • Blushing
  • Flushing
  • Red Nose/ Bulbous nose
  • Telangiectasia

Causes

The cause of Rosacea is not known. It mostly shows up between the ages of 30 to 50, although it may be present in the teen years. Men who suffer from rosacea typically experience more severe symptoms. Common triggers of rosacea that may cause additional flushing are caffeine, alcohol, fried or spicy foods and refined sugars.
