What Is Rosacea?
Rosacea, sometimes called “acne rosacea” is a chronic skin condition characterized by skin redness, bumps, pimples, and often the presence of blood vessels on the face. Rosacea may initially look like blushing, but over time the redness may get worse and small blood vessels can become more prominent. The condition commonly develops on the cheeks, forehead, ears, nose, chin, and neck.
What Causes Rosacea?
The exact causes of rosacea have not been determined. However, genetics, environmental factors, and blood vessel disorders are believed to contribute to the condition. Although no one knows what causes rosacea, there are known triggers that should be avoided. Triggers include:
- Sun exposure
- Hot or cold weather
- Spicy foods
Rosacea patients can determine personal triggers by making a list of activities or food that preceded a flare-up so that they can be avoided in the future. To learn more about rosacea, visit medlineplus.gov
