What Is Rosacea?

Rosacea is a skin condition that causes redness on the face and discomfort when there is contact with water.

The redness may appear on the cheeks, forehead, nose, and chin from time to time, and stay permanently if the rosacea is severe.

It can look like small red bumps on your skin or appear veiny due to broken blood vessels.

Rosacea can lead to self-consciousness and those who have it might not know how to deal with it or even be aware that the condition exists.

If you think you might have rosacea and are looking for treatment, you’ve come to the right place.

What Causes Rosacea?

The causes of rosacea are currently unknown, but it is thought that certain things can trigger it to worsen in people who are prone to it.

Some common triggers are spicy food, caffeine, and alcohol.

Using harsh products on your face may also aggravate the condition.

Figuring out your triggers and adjusting your lifestyle can help to manage the rosacea to an extent, but treatment is recommended to keep symptoms from getting severe.
