Are you experiencing an irritating redness to the cheeks, nose, chin, or forehead? Rosacea is a common chronic inflammatory skin condition. We do not know the exact cause of Rosacea however we do know that there are various environmental and lifestyle factors that can cause patients with rosacea prone skin to flare. These flare ups are known as triggers and include environmental, weather, food and drink, intense exercises, stress, medical conditions, medication and drugs, skin care products and microbes (demodex mite).
Rosacea is characterized by redness in the areas of the face mentioned above, and can be accompanied by pimples, rough textured skin, small veins, and an itching or burning sensation. Rosacea generally occurs between ages 30 to 50 and found more predominantly in women and individuals with fair skin.
