Do You Suffer From Rosacea?
If you clicked to read this, then you probably either have rosacea or know someone who does. Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes redness, flushing, and sometimes pimples and pustules on your face. It’s not the same as acne, but it can make you feel embarrassed or lose confidence, particularly if it is left untreated.
Rosacea isn’t contagious, but there is some evidence that it may be hereditary. There’s no cure, but there are treatments available that can help control it.
You may have Rosacea if you have:
Frequent blushing, flushing or redness on your cheeks, nose, chin or forehead.
Persistent redness that looks similar to a sunburn that does not go away.
Small visible blood vessels on your face.
Bumps or pimples on your face that might sting or burn,
red or irritated eyes or swollen eyelids.
Factors That Contribute To Rosacea
If either of your parents has rosacea, you most likely do too; there is definitely a genetic component to this disorder; you either have it or you don’t. If you do have it, your genetic makeup determines whether your condition will be mild or more severe. Research in twins showed that genetics accounted for roughly half of the symptoms of Rosacea, with environmental effects accounting for the rest.
Ethnicity is also a major factor in your potential to develop rosacea. A survey by the National Rosacea Society in the USA found that 33% of respondents reported having at least one parent of Irish heritage and 26% percent had a parent of English descent. People of Scandinavian, Scottish, Welsh or Eastern European descent also had increased incidence of Rosacea.
How Does Rosacea Develop?
Rosacea often starts to appear in the teenage years. Initial symptoms can be mistaken for sensitive skin or acne. The signature flush can appear, turning your skin a subtle pink shade. Pus-filled bumps (known as acne rosacea) can appear on the central part of the face and are often mistaken for acne.
Early detection is especially important because treating acne rosacea with peroxide based acne cleansers will exacerbate your disorder, drying your skin further and increasing redness without getting rid of the pimple-like bumps.
Rosacea can become more severe over time. If you ignore early warning signs, like prolonged flushing, it will be harder to reverse the redness. Some cases can become so extreme that the nose may grow swollen and bumpy from excess tissue — a condition, called rhinophyma. Your eyes can also be affected, looking and feeling irritated and bloodshot.
Can Rosacea Be Cured?
Rosacea is not curable, but you can help keep it under control and prevent it from getting worse. Topical products that have soothing and anti-inflammatory ingredients can be very effective.
There are a lot of skin products that you should stay away from. Avoid using harsh cleansers, physical exfoliants like jojoba beads or chemical scrubs and alcohol-based toners. Instead, try using gentle milk-based cleansers .
Foods can trigger rosacea flares. Anything that makes your face flush is essentially a rosacea trigger. That means alcohol, stress, anxiety, spicy foods, hot beverages, sun, cold, strong winds, and humidity. Unfortunately, that’s just a short version of the list.
