Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that results in redness on the face, with the possibility of spreading to the ears, chest, and back. There are four subtypes of rosacea that encompass the broad range of the condition’s symptoms:
- Facial redness, flushing, and visible blood vessels
- Acne-like breakouts with redness and swelling
- Thickening skin with bumpy texture
- Ocular rosacea (in the eye)
It is possible to have more than one subtype of rosacea. Because rosacea is a long-lasting condition, and one that can unexpectedly flare up, its effects are not just skin-deep. In addition to causing feelings of frustration and embarrassment, rosacea can undermine self-esteem and contribute to anxiety, depression, and problems with interpersonal relationships.
What Causes Rosacea
Scientists have identified several factors that may contribute to the onset of rosacea. Rosacea seems to run in families; it’s possible that a rosacea-causing gene can be inherited from a parent. Scientists have also linked rosacea to immune reactions to certain bacteria and to the mite known as demodex that lives on the skin.
Root causes aside, we know there are certain triggers of rosacea that are common, including sun exposure, becoming overheated, cold wind hitting the face, and spicy foods.
