Rosacea

Rosacea is a vascular disorder that appears commonly as a ‘red flush’

It can appear in the centre of the face, on the nose, across the cheeks, around the eyes and forehead and less commonly on the neck, chest, ears, and scalp.

Rosacea symptoms can flare up in response to certain triggers such as stress, anxiety, exposure to temperature extremes, sunlight, alcohol, beverages containing caffeine, foods high in histamines and spicy foods.

There are four identified rosacea subtypes.

  • Skin Health Hub Skin Conditions What Is RosaceaErythematotelangiectatic rosacea, redness (erythema) appears as a semi-permanent blush (telangiectasia).
  • Papulopustular rosacea, some permanent redness dotted with small red bumps (papules), or more inflamed pus filled bumps (pustules).
  • Phymatous rosacea, a red lobulated (rhinophyma) enlargement of the nose. Phymatous rosacea can also affect the chin (gnathophyma), forehead (metophyma), cheeks, eyelids (blepharophyma), and ears (otophyma).
  • Ocular rosacea, red eyes and eyelids with dry, irritated, gritty, burning or stinging sensations.

Certain medications, oral antibiotics and topical steroid creams can be effective in alleviating symptoms. Skin care with ant-inflammatory ingredients such as aloe vera, provitamin B5, green tea, algae and zinc can be beneficial in soothing irritated skin. Some cosmetic treatments such as vascular light therapy or intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy can also successfully reduce redness and flushing.
