Rosacea is a very common benign skin disorder affecting at least 14 million people in the Unied States alone. The main symptoms of this facial condition include red or pink patches, visible broken blood vessels, small red bumps, red cysts, and pink or irritated eyes.
Most people with the disorder may not even know they have rosacea or that it is a diagnosable and treatable condition as it can be confused with simply blushing easily or having a sunburn.
Considered a chronic long-term, non-curable skin disease with periodic ups and downs, rosacea is a condition you can only treat to ease the issue. It characteristically affects the central region of the face, causing persistent redness or temporary flushing over the areas of the face and nose that normally blush - mainly the forehead, the chin and the lower half of the nose. In the most severe cases, skin can thicken and enlarge, usually on and around the nose.
The redness is often aggravated by flushing and may cause small blood vessels in the face to enlarge (dilate) and become more visible through the skin, appearing as tiny red lines called telangiectasias. Continual or recurring episodes of flushing may promote inflammation, causing red bumps that resemble acne. In fact, rosacea is often mistaken for common acne and can also be referred to as acne rosacea. As with other skin conditions, rosacea will also benefit from a healthy diet and lifestyle and taking regular nutritional supplements.
