What Exactly Is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a chronic skin disorder, which results in bumps and redness on the neck, forehead, nose, chest, chin, cheeks, which are often filled with pus. Common signs for rosacea include:
o An itching and/or burning feeling in the eyes
o Thin red lines visible from beneath the skin caused by swollen blood vessels
Rosacea affects 14 million persons in the United States. It can affect anyone, but it is more prevalent in fair-skinned women ranging from 30 and 60 years. It is often misdiagnosed as eczema or an allergic reaction. Early medical care is critical for relieving symptoms that would otherwise worsen. Over-the-counter medications are usually unsuccessful and can even make the problem worse.
What Is The Trigger Of Rosacea?
The trigger for rosacea is unclear, but research shows it can be initiated by and/or exacerbated by various factors. These might include the following:
o Exercising excessively
o Freezing temperatures
o Sunlight exposure
o Spicy or hot beverages and foods
o Intake of alcoholic drinks
o Emotional tension
