What Exactly Is Rosacea?

Rosacea is a skin condition that usually affects the face. It is most common in patients who are over the age of 30. Rosacea causes visible pimples, blood vessels and bumps to develop on the face. Patients who have a severe case of this condition may develop extra red tissue on their nose. This is a condition that is referred to as rhinophyma. Rosacea affects more women than men. However, men typically have more severe cases of rosacea. Alcohol, spicy food and exposure to the sun or cold are some of the things that can worsen this condition. The exact causes of rosacea are not known, and there is no cure available for this condition. The good news is that this condition can be controlled with treatment. Early treatment of rosacea can also prevent permanent skin damage.
