WHAT IS IT:

Red, flushed skin on the nose and cheeks, tender pustules or a distorted nose with enlarged pores. The skin can be prematurely aged in affected areas and red, scratchy eyes can be an indication of ocular rosacea. Rosacea may also sometimes be wider spread than the cheeks and nose. 

The cause for rosacea isn’t known as experts are still in disagreement. It however does happen more commonly with certain risk factors such as a family history of rosacea, a history of acne and in those with fair skins. 

MORE INFORMATION: 

The following are theories that are being considered:

  • Abnormalities and inflammation in blood vessels 

  • Possible abnormalities in oil(sebum) production (sometimes with a history of acne) 

  • Faulty immune activity 

  • Impaired skin barrier function 

  • Possible nervous system contributions 

  • A reaction to the Demodex mite

  • H. pylori bacteria activity in the gut

Not all red skin is rosacea. Redness can result from general sensitisation and inflammation or can be related to other skin conditions, such as Eczema and Perioral Dermatitis. Broken veins can occur totally unrelated to the above, as a result of mechanical trauma, harsh product use, smoking or photo damage. 

Rosacea is a progressive disease and should always be treated. Early intervention can impact the likelihood of treatments working, and can control and prevent deeper tissue changes and scarring.

ROSACEA TYPES:

  • Type 1 – Erythematotelangiectatic (red, flushed skin)

  • Type 2 - Papulopustular rosacea (rashy spots or pustules)

  • Type 3 - Phymatous rosacea (distorted nose with thick skin)

  • Type 4 - Ocular rosacea (red, irritated eyes)
