What is rosacea?
Rosacea is a type of non-contagious skin inflammation that affects 1 in 20 people and typically affects the face. Symptoms include, swelling and redness, small red spots and pumps, visible small blood vessels on the face, pustules and cysts that resemble acne, unusual fast and intense flushing and skin sensitivity.
Rosacea is a complex condition and the exact causes are not yet known. Research suggests that rosacea is caused by a combination of factors rather than a single cause. Rosacea is suspected of having gene and environmental origins plus factors related to the immune system, skin and blood vessels.
Conventional rosacea treatments include: Antibiotics and steroids or the application of lotions and creams. Nether have been proven to cure rosacea and may cause unwanted side effects.
Laser treatment can also be used to treat rosacea.
