Rosacea is a long-term condition and can affect up to 10% of people with fair skin.
It results in redness, pimples, swelling and small superficial dilated blood vessels affecting the cheeks, nose, forehead and chin. The cause of rosacea is unknown.
Risk factors are believed to include a family history of the condition.
Factors that may potentially trigger and worsen the condition include spicy food, alcohol, heat, cold, exercise, menopause and stress. While not curable, treatment, diet and lifestyle changes usually improves symptoms.
Regular and long-term use of pharmaceutical medications are not proven to treat rosacea.
Managing triggers, professional treatments and the use of recommended homecare can have a positive affect by reducing inflammation, redness and irritation.
