What Is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a long-term skin condition. Sufferers experience symptoms across a spectrum that includes sensitive and reactive skin, flushing, redness, swelling, acne-like breakouts, bumpy skin texture, and red and irritated eyelids.
Rosacea is believed to be caused by inflammation from various sources, but the exact cause is not yet fully understood. It can be triggered by stress, food, heat, sun and cosmetics and is most common in women ages 30-50.
Genetics play a role, with a higher risk if there is a family history. An overactive immune response to environmental and inflammatory triggers can also be a factor.
Triggers, or the indirect causes, of rosacea symptoms can differ from person to person. Here are some common triggers to be aware of:
