Rosacea is a common skin disease causing redness the nose, cheeks, chin, and forehead in the form of small red bumps or pimples. It typically affects adults over the age of 30. What causes rosacea?
Experts are not sure exactly what causes rosacea since it doesn’t seem to be a virus or a bacteria. However researchers have discovered that it tends to appear in people with very fair skin with a genetic history of rosacea in their family.
Rosacea causes the blood vessels in the face to expand, making them appear red or the skin flushed. It also tends to come and go but is triggered by swings in temperature from hot to cold or cold to hot. Additionally, exercise, sun and wind exposure, hot weather, stress, spicy foods, alcohol, and hot baths can trigger a rosacea flare up.
