What Is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a relatively common, chronic skin disorder with symptoms being patchy redness and inflammation, particularly on the cheeks, nose, forehead, and chin. It also causes 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. Some of these include: strenuous exercise, heat from sunlight, severe sunburn, stress, anxiety, cold wind, alcohol, food and beverages containing caffeine, foods high in histamines, and spicy food.
