Rosacea

Rosacea is a chronic skin disorder that primarily affects women; although some of the most extreme and severe cases have been present in men, and are characterized by persistent redness, visible blood vessels and in some cases even pimples on the central areas of the face; such as the nose, chin, cheeks and forehead.

Symptoms

If you do develop symptoms of Rosacea, seek the advice of a dermatologist or a skin care professional.

Causes

Though many have speculated, there are no known cures or causes for Rosacea. Some dermatologists have suggested that heredity, environmental factors, poor immune system, sun exposure, eating hot or spicy foods, abrasive cleansers or alcohol consumption play a part in what can causes Rosacea.
