Researchers have yet to clarify the exact causes of rosacea, but they generally consider it genetic and may also link it to an overactive immune system. It is crucial to understand that rosacea is not associated with poor hygiene and that you cannot “catch” it from others.

Various factors can trigger flare-ups in rosacea symptoms, including:

  • Exposure to direct sunlight.
  • Exposure to strong winds.
  • Hot beverages.
  • Spicy foods.
  • Emotional stress.
  • Strenuous exercise.
  • Fluctuations in temperature.
  • Reactions to cosmetic products or medications.

Regardless of your rosacea triggers, a board-certified dermatologist can provide solutions to keep your symptoms in check.

Treatment Options

Your treatment journey begins with a consultation, allowing your dermatologist to assess your symptoms and recommend a custom treatment plan. You can often control the symptoms of rosacea with oral medications or topical solutions. Laser therapy has also proven effective in managing the symptoms of rosacea flare-ups.

Tips for Managing

Identifying your rosacea triggers can be an essential first step toward controlling flare-ups. Regardless of what triggers your rosacea symptoms, it is always helpful to wear adequate sun protection when outside for any period of time, no matter the season. Using gentle facial cleansers and avoiding abrasive or irritating cosmetic products can also minimize the risk of rosacea symptoms.

Rosacea FAQs

Rosacea generally begins after age 30 and goes through cycles of flare-ups and remissions. Over time, it gets ruddier in color and small blood vessels (like spider veins) may appear on the face. If left untreated, bumps and pimples may form, the end of the nose may become swollen, red and bulbous and eyes may water or become irritated.

Rosacea occurs most often among people with fair skin who tend to blush or flush easily. It occurs more often among women than men, but men tend to suffer from more severe symptoms. Most patients experience multiple symptoms at varying levels of severity.

Common symptoms include:

  • Flushing
  • Persistently red skin on the face
  • Bumps or acne-like pimples
  • Visible blood vessels on facial skin
  • Watery or irritated eyes
  • Burning, itching or stinging of facial skin
  • Skin roughness and dryness
  • Raised red patches
  • Swelling (edema)

These symptoms may also appear on the neck, chest, scalp and ears.

The exact cause of rosacea is not fully understood, but there are several factors believed to contribute to the condition. While bacteria may play a role in rosacea, it is not considered the primary cause. Rather, the presence of certain bacteria on the skin, such as Demodex mites or bacteria like H. pylori, may exacerbate symptoms in some individuals. Additionally, abnormalities in the skin’s immune response and blood vessel function are thought to contribute to the development and progression of rosacea. However, more research is needed to fully understand the role of bacteria and other factors in rosacea pathogenesis.

Rosacea typically appears on the central part of the face, including the cheeks, nose, chin, and forehead. However, it can also affect other areas such as the neck, chest, scalp, and ears in some cases. The characteristic redness, flushing, and visible blood vessels associated with rosacea tend to be most prominent in these areas. Additionally, papules, pustules, and thickened skin may develop, particularly on the nose (a condition known as rhinophyma).
