What is Rosacea?

Rosacea is a long-term facial skin condition characterized by the outbreak of small, red, pus-filled bumps. There is no cure for rosacea; however, some treatments can reduce its symptoms.

The cause of rosacea has not yet been determined; however, studies point to a connection with the immune system, a protein, or even a skin mite.

What does Rosacea look like ?

  • Facial redness
  • Acne-like bumps
  • Enlarged nose
  • Facial spider veins
  • Swollen or thickened skin

What causes Rosacea ?

Approximately 14 million Americans have rosacea to some degree. Anyone can get rosacea; however, middle-aged women with fair skin are more likely to contract it.

Other common factors are:

  • People between 30 and 50
  • Fair-skinned people
  • People with a family history
  • Current or former acne sufferers

What can treat Rosacea ?

Since there is no cure, dermatologists work to reduce the physical symptoms by recommending topical medications, oral antibiotics and light therapy. The thickened skin that accompanies rosacea may be reduced through cosmetic procedures such as dermabrasion.
