What Causes Rosacea?

In all honesty we don’t really know the exact cause of rosacea. Some think rosacea happens when we have blood vessels that react too easily, this causes a red flushing of the skin. We do know that people who blush a lot may be more likely to get rosacea. There is reason to believe that you may be more at risk of inheriting rosacea if you have family members who have it or you are of English decent.

Why people develop rosacea we do not entirely know but we do know that certain things exacerbate it causing flare up's:

Exercise, sunlight, wind, cold temperatures, hot temperatures, spicy foods, alcohol, menopause, stress and use of steroids on the face.

What does rosacea look like?

Rosacea is quite a distinct condition with continual redness (flushing) of the face. Most redness is at the center of the face (butterfly area). There is often a burning sensation with the skin reacting to things very easily. There may also be tiny pimples and slight swelling. You may also notice small dilated capillaries under the skin known as telangiecstasia. The affected area of the skin may be somewhat swollen, warm, and red. You may develop inflamed eyes/eyelids and a swollen nose. In some people (mostly men), the nose becomes red, larger, and bumpy. You may also notice that your skin becomes thicker with enlarged pores.
