What is rosacea

Rosacea is a chronic condition which mainly affects the skin of the face. There is redness and flushing similar to the color of a rose which is what gives the condition its name.

 

It is triggered by various stimuli which include:

  • heat
  • spicy food
  • exercise
  • caffeine
  • alcohol
  • emotional stress etc.

Causes

The causes of rosacea are mainly unknown but there are studies which say that it could be associated with the demodex mite which is found in increased number on the skin of patients with rosacea.

 

We are seeing an alarmingly increased number of cases of steroid triggered rosacea, which happens due to the abuse of over the counter skin lightening creams.

Signs and symptoms

Signs and symptoms include:

  • redness
  • sensitivity
  • episodic flushing
  • acne
  • telangiectasia (increased appearance of blood vessels)

In advanced stages it can lead to eye involvement and rhinophymas.

Is there a treatment available for rosacea?

No, there is no cure for the chronic condition. However there are symptomatic treatments available which make sure that rosacea does not affect the quality of your life.

They mainly include topical and oral medications. In case the flushing and blood vessel appearance is very pronounced or persistent, IPL can be used to get it under control.

 

Rhinophyma requires surgery to improve the cosmetic appearance. This surgery is performed by dermatologists.

How to avoid rosacea

To avoid the symptoms of rosacea, you will have to stay away from the triggers mentioned in the first section.

 

To prevent acquired rosacea, stay away from the application of steroids without a prescription, especially over long periods of time.
