WOMEN'S HEALTH

Hair/Nails/Skin

Rosacea is a facial rash that occurs in middle-aged men and women. Rosacea is an inflammatory skin condition often resulting in redness of your face. You may mistake its characteristics — red nose, flushed cheeks, and small, red, pus-filled bumps or pustules — for acne. In fact, rosacea is also known as adult acne or acne rosacea, but in reality it has little to do with the pimples and blackheads that commonly afflict teenagers. Although some people with rosacea have had significant acne as teenagers, the cause of rosecea is unknown.

If not treated, rosacea tends to be a progressive condition, which means it gets worse over time, but in most people it's cyclic. It may be active for a time, lessen in intensity, then be followed by a flare-up. Besides, acne it can also be mistaken for other skin problems, such as skin allergy. Once diagnosed, it's highly treatable.

Signs and symptoms

Signs and symptoms of rosacea include:

  • Red areas on your face

  • Tendency to flush or blush easily

  • Visible small blood vessels on your nose and cheeks

  • Small, red bumps or pustules on your nose, cheeks, forehead and chin (not the same as whiteheads or blackheads)

  • Inflammation of your cheeks, nose, forehead and chin

  • Burning or gritty sensation in your eyes (ocular rosacea)

  • Red, bulbous nose (rhinophyma)

Rosacea usually appears in phases. It may begin as a simple tendency to flush or blush easily, then progress to a persistent redness in the central portion of your face, particularly your nose. This redness results from the dilation of blood vessels close to your skin's surface. This phase is called prerosacea.

As signs and symptoms worsen, vascular rosacea may develop — small blood vessels on your nose and cheeks swell and become visible (telangiectasia). Your skin may become overly dry and sensitive. However, rosacea may also be accompanied by oily skin and dandruff.

Small, red bumps or pustules may appear and persist, spreading across your nose, cheeks, forehead and chin. This is sometimes known as inflammatory rosacea.

In severe and rare cases, the oil glands (sebaceous glands) in your nose and sometimes your cheeks become enlarged, resulting in a buildup of tissue on and around your nose (rhinophyma). This complication is much more common in men.

In addition, more than half the people with rosacea experience ocular rosacea — a burning and gritty sensation in the eyes. Rosacea may cause the inner skin of the eyelids to become inflamed or appear scaly, a condition known as conjunctivitis.
