If you suffer from Rosacea, you understand how frustrating this chronic skin condition can be. Rosacea sufferers experience redness on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead; and sometimes the neck, cheek or scalp. The condition can be somewhat unpredictable with flare-ups and remissions. If left untreated, the condition can persist. Skin can become more irritated, redness can worsen, blood vessels can appear, and bumps can begin to surface. And, in some cases the skin will appear swollen and bumpy from excess tissue build up.
Rosacea varies from patient and patient. According to rosacea.org, the following are primary signs of Rosacea:
Many people with rosacea have a history of frequent blushing or flushing. This facial redness may come and go, and is often the earliest sign of the disorder.
- Persistent Redness
Persistent facial redness is the most common individual sign of rosacea, and may resemble a blush or sunburn that does not go away.
- Bumps and Pimples
Small red solid bumps or pus-filled pimples often develop. While these may resemble acne, blackheads are absent and burning or stinging may occur.
- Visible Blood Vessels
In many people with rosacea, small blood vessels become visible on the skin.
