Understanding Rosacea

Rosacea is a long term skin condition, characterised by redness, flushing, visible veins and acne-like bumps on the skin. Often, symptoms appear on the cheeks, forehead, nose and chin, and less commonly, the body.

There are lots of potential triggers and causes of rosacea, though the exact cause is still unclear. Genetics, abnormalities within the vascular and immune systems, and even mites have been suggested as potential causes.

Erythematotelangiectatic Rosacea

Considered the most common type of rosacea. ETR is characterised by persistent redness and flushing at the centre of the face, and visible blood vessels. On darker skin, the redness may appear as a purple or brown flush.

Rhinophyma Rosacea

A much rarer type of rosacea. Rhinophyma rosacea is characterised by the thickening of the skin, usually resulting in a large, red, bumpy nose, particularly in men. The thickening less commonly affects the chin, forehead, and ears.

Ocular Rosacea

For some people, rosacea extends beyond the skin. Ocular rosacea, as the name suggests, is characterised by symptoms affecting the eyes. Redness, dryness, grittiness, and light sensitivity are often experienced with this type.

Papulopustular Rosacea

Also known as acne rosacea, as it is characterised by red bumps, pimples, and pustules that resemble an acne breakout. Other symptoms, such as oily, red, sensitive skin also contribute to the confusion between acne and rosacea.
