How To Deal With Rosacea

Ever had persistent redness in your face that just doesn't go away? Or some pesky, red, small bumps that may be filled with pus? Or small blood vessels on your nose and cheeks start swelling up and becoming more visible? If so, you may be experiencing something called rosacea. It is a skin condition that is commonly misinterpreted as acne. These symptoms may flare up for weeks or even months but then subside. In more severe cases, some experience swelling and redness around the eye area or stinging when cleansing your face with water or other skincare products.

There are four main types of rosacea, according to the American Academy of Dermatology:

  • Erythematotelangiectatic rosacea: Symptoms include skin discoloration, flushing, and visible blood vessels.
  • Papulopustular rosacea: Symptoms include flushing, swelling, and breakouts that resemble acne.
  • Phymatous rosacea: Symptoms include thickened, bumpy skin.
  • Ocular rosacea: Symptoms include eye redness and irritation and swollen eyelids.

There is no exact cause of rosacea, sometimes it is hereditary but it can be triggered by environmental factors such as hot drinks, spicy foods, alcohol, extreme temperatures, harsh wind, hot showers and saunas, sunlight, exercise, dairy products, caffeine, certain ingredients in cosmetic products. Rosacea can affect anyone, but the likelihood of being diagnosed with it increases if you are female, above 30, have pale skin, have sun-damaged skin or if you smoke.

Below are some treatments to help you combat rosacea and reduce redness.
