Rosacea is a common skin condition that affects more than 14 million people. It tends to be seen in people between 30 and 50 years of age, however, children can also get rosacea. While fair-skinned people tend to get rosacea, people of color can also get it.

Rosacea causes redness and often, red, acne-like bumps on the face. The redness can spread to the forehead and chin. Even the ears, chest and back can be red all the time. Yet rosacea can cause more than just redness. Over time, people with rosacea often see permanent redness in the center of their face—from visible blood vessels and thickening skin and bumpy texture, to red and irritated eyes, swollen eyelids and what looks like a sty.

Rosacea, a persistent inflammatory condition affecting the skin on the face, presents itself initially as a sunburn or blushing that refuses to fade away. If left untreated, it gradually worsens, leading to additional symptoms and increasing discomfort.

The exact cause of rosacea remains uncertain, with various factors potentially contributing to its development. Genetics, an overactive immune system, and environmental elements may all play a role. Flare-ups of rosacea symptoms often occur after exposure to sunlight and wind, consumption of alcoholic beverages, consumption of spicy foods, physical exertion, stress, or certain medications.

Individuals afflicted with rosacea may experience one or more of the following symptoms:

  • redness in the midface
  • easily flushed skin
  • visible small blood vessels just beneath the skin’s surface
  • sensitivity in the skin
  •  a hot or burning sensation in the affected area
  •  small red bumps or pus-filled papules resembling acne.

What causes rosacea? The American Academy of Dermatology says that sunlight and hairspray are common rosacea triggers. Other common triggers include heat, stress, alcohol and spicy foods.
