Understanding Rosacea

Rosacea is a common skin condition characterized by redness and visible blood vessels in your face. It may also produce small, red, pus-filled bumps. Symptoms often fluctuate in severity and can be mistaken for acne, other skin problems or natural ruddiness.

Causes and Triggers of Rosacea

The exact cause of rosacea is unknown, but various theories about the disorder's origin have been proposed, including defects in the blood vessels or the immune system, presence of certain bacteria and mites, or a protein that causes blood vessels to dilate. Factors that trigger rosacea or aggravate its symptoms include hot drinks, spicy foods, alcohol, temperature extremes, sunlight or wind, emotions, exercise, cosmetics, drugs that dilate blood vessels and certain blood pressure medications.
