Effective ways to treat rosacea
Not to be confused with acne, rosacea is a common skin condition that can lead to the development of small, pus-filled bumps resulting from blushing and visible blood vessels in the face.
When affected by rosacea, your face may have these signs for weeks or months. During this period, your symptoms may worsen. More often than not, the problem may go away for a while.
Potential causes of rosacea
What causes rosacea is still unknown today. Scientists believe it could be a combination of the following:
- Overactive immune system
- Environmental factors
There has been some misconception about rosacea; some people say, “This skin problem is contagious”; others say, “It’s caused by poor hygiene”.
But the truth is that rosacea is not contagious at all, neither is it caused by poor hygiene.
Who is at high risk of rosacea?
Nobody is immune to rosacea. Anyone can experience this problem. Yet studies have indicated that rosacea is more common in adult white women.
You are at a higher risk of suffering from rosacea if:
- You have a family history of this skin problem;
- You smoke;
- You are female;
- You are aged 30 or above.
What Increases your risk of rosacea?
Some products, foods and beverages, and lifestyles may increase the chance of developing rosacea, including:
- Skin and hair products;
- Spicy foods and hot drinks;
- Alcoholic beverages;
- Blood pressure medications and drugs known to dilate blood vessels;
- Some types of exercise.

Burning sensation: your affected skin may feel tender and hot at the same time.
Swollen bumps: you may have pimples, similar to an acne breakout or pustules.
Enlarged nose: over time, this skin problem can make the skin on men’s noses thick and bulbous. This is rare in women.
