What is rosacea

Even with proper home skin care, various unpleasant phenomena can occur on the face – redness, rashes, dryness. This is explained by the fact that the appearance and condition of the skin is influenced by many factors related to a person’s health, the quality of his life or the environment. An important role is played by genetics, which is also largely responsible for various skin diseases.

Today we will talk in detail about such an unpleasant phenomenon as rosacea. What is this problem, why it appears and how to deal with it, read in this article.

Rosacea causes and symptoms

Rosacea is a chronic skin disease that is manifested by reddening of the skin, visible dilation of small blood vessels, as well as papules and pustules, which may resemble acne in appearance. It can appear on different parts of the face – nose, cheeks, forehead and even neck. The condition of the skin in rosacea can vary from intense redness to inflamed pustules. Most often, the problem affects women aged 30-60.

The causes of rosacea on the skin can be very diverse:

  • genetic predisposition plays an important role. If fragile vessels are the norm for members of your family, then it is quite expected that rosacea may appear in you;
  • triggers for the appearance and development of the disease are various environmental factors. Ultraviolet rays, sudden temperature changes, love of spicy food and alcohol, smoking, taking some drugs have the strongest effect;
  • diseases of the gastrointestinal tract can also provoke the development of rosacea.

In order to understand the reasons for the development of rosacea, it is necessary to consult a doctor and pass all the necessary tests. On the basis of the collected data, the doctor will draw a conclusion and tell which system of the body can provoke skin problems.

Classification of rosacea

There can be several types of the disease and all of them require different treatment and care. Types of rosacea:

  • erythemato-telangiectatic type (couperosis) – manifests itself in the form of erythema (redness) and precisely because of the appearance of a vascular network often rosacea begins. That is why it is important to consult a specialist already at this stage, preventing the progression of the disease;
  • papulo-pustular type – pustules and inflamed red papules begin to appear against the background of redness ( pink eels). Rashes usually appear on the cheeks, but can also appear on the chin or forehead. Sometimes such rashes are accompanied by burning;
  • phymatous type – rashes merge together and form a large focus of inflammation, which can be removed surgically or medically. This form of rosacea most often affects men;
  • ocular (ophthalmosacea) – manifested by damage to the eyes in the form of conjunctivitis and decreased visual acuity. It often occurs without rashes or redness, which complicates diagnosis.
  • Morbian’s disease is an atypical variant of the development of rosacea, which is characterized by swelling of the middle third of the face and persistent erythema, which is not accompanied by sub objective feelings.
