What is Rosacea?

Rosacea is a common skin disease that causes redness and swelling on the face.

Often rosacea may begin as a tendency to flush or blush easily, and progress to persistent redness in the centre of the face that may gradually involve the cheeks, forehead, chin, and nose.

It also may involve the ears, chest and back.

As the disease progresses, small blood vessels and tiny pimples begin to appear on and around the reddened area. However, unlike acne, there are no blackheads.

When it first develops, rosacea may come and go on its own.

When the skin doesn't return to its normal colour and when other symptoms, such as pimples and enlarged or broken capillaries become visible, it is best to seek advice from a dermatologist.

Rosacea is a potentially devastating disease that rarely reverses itself and may last forever. It typically becomes worse without treatment.
