Rosacea

Rosacea

Rosacea is a common condition characterized by persistent redness of the cheeks, nose, and less commonly the brows and chin. Prominent blood vessels, flushing, pimple-like bumps and pustules may be present. It is most common in women in their 30s and 40s, but frequently occurs in men as well.

The cause of rosacea is unknown. Chronic sun exposure worsens the condition. Other potential triggers may include:
• Heat/Cold
• Stress
• Spicy foods
• Hot drinks
• Exercise
• Alcohol
• Caffeine withdrawal
• Certain medications
