Rosacea is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition that primarily affects the face. It is characterised by redness, visible blood vessels (telangiectasia), and sometimes acne-like pimples or bumps. Rosacea can also cause burning or stinging sensations on the skin, and, in more severe cases, the skin can thicken and enlarge, a condition known as rhinophyma, which usually affects the nose.

The exact cause of rosacea is unknown, but it is believed to be a combination of hereditary and environmental factors. Triggers that can worsen symptoms include hot drinks, spicy foods, alcohol, extreme temperatures, sunlight, stress, and certain skin care products.

Rosacea typically begins after age 30 and occurs more frequently in individuals with fair skin, though it can affect people of any skin type. It is more common in women than in men, but men often experience more severe symptoms.

Can I Cure My Rosacea?

There is no cure for rosacea, but its symptoms can be managed with various treatments. Diagnosing rosacea usually involves a physical examination of the skin and a discussion of symptoms and potential triggers with a healthcare provider, often a dermatologist. Since rosacea can sometimes mimic other skin conditions, a proper diagnosis is essential for effective management.

Management strategies include lifestyle changes to avoid known triggers, skin care routines that minimise irritation, and medications such as topical creams and gels, oral antibiotics, and, in some cases, laser or light therapy to reduce redness and visible blood vessels.
