Rosacea is a chronic skin condition characterized by central facial redness (erythema), flushing, the appearance of blood vessels, and often acne-like bumps and pustules. It is a common skin condition affecting around 10% of the population - especially affecting Caucasians of Northern European descent. Many people I see on a daily basis, suffer from rosacea and this condition can be emotional debilitating affecting their own self confidence and appearance. The cause of rosacea is not fully known but what we do know is that this condition can be triggered or worsened by a variety of factors, including sunlight, foods (alcohol, spicy foods, hot drinks/foods), emotions, hormones, hot/cold weather, hot showers, vigorous exercise and much more! As well, there are many forms of rosacea-from acne-like rosacea to eye rosacea to rosacea causing disfiguring noses, foreheads, & chins.
Approaches to treat rosacea must be individualized based on the disease severity, lifestyle, triggers that worsen the condition, and the amount of time the patient has to commit to a treatment schedule.
