Rosacea

What Is Rosacea?

Rosacea is a relatively common, chronic skin disorder with symptoms being patchy flushing (redness) and inflammation, particularly on the cheeks, nose, forehead, and chin as well as small visible blood vessels on the face, bumps or pimples on the face and watery or irritated eyes. Triggers that cause episodes of flushing and blushing play a part in the development of rosacea. Exposure to temperature extremes can cause the face to become flushed as well as strenuous exercise, heat from sunlight, severe sunburn, stress, anxiety, cold wind, and moving to a warm or hot environment from a cold one such as heated shops and offices during the winter. There are also some food and drinks that can trigger flushing, including alcohol, food and beverages containing caffeine (especially, hot tea and coffee), foods high in histamines and spicy food. Foods high in histamine (red wine, aged cheeses, yogurt, beer, cured pork products such as bacon, etc.) can even cause persistent facial flushing in those individuals without rosacea due to a separate condition, histamine intolerance.
