Rosacea is an inflammatory skin condition that causes flushing, red skin, pimples, and visible blood vessels. A variety of factors, including sun exposure, heat, stress, spicy foods, cheese, alcohol, consumption of caffeinated beverages, and certain skincare products can flare rosacea in patients with a genetic predisposition to this skin condition. Minimizing exposure to things that trigger rosacea can be helpful.
Rosacea is estimated to affect over 16 million people in the US, and most of them don't know it! 9 out of 10 rosacea patients had been completely unaware of its signs and symptoms prior to their diagnosis.
