Rosacea is an inflammatory skin disease that commonly affects adults; usually individuals with fair skin and most frequently women between the ages of 30 and 60. Rosacea is characterised by facial redness and may often present with small, red, pimple-like lesions which can be mistaken for a skin rash or acne. In fact, rosacea has been called adult acne or acne rosacea, but the disease has little to do with the pimples and blackheads that commonly afflict teenagers.
Left untreated, Rosacea tends to be progressive, which means it gets worse over time. However, in most people rosacea is cyclic – this means that the condition will flare up for a period of weeks to months and then improve for a while before the rosacea flares up again.
It must be noted that Rosacea is a chronic condition and cannot be cured; it’s not life-threatening, but it can affect your appearance and lower your self-esteem. However, with regular skincare treatments and the correct home care products this condition can be managed and controlled.
What causes Rosacea?
The cause of Rosacea is unknown. We do however know which factors aggravate the condition and by avoiding these aggravators the condition can be controlled. These include: alcohol, spicy food, saunas and steam rooms, sunlight, stress, strenuous exercise, and certain medications.
