What is Rosacea?

Do you suffer from a flushed, red face or have lumpy red spots or thread veins? It may be caused by rosacea. It is not normally painful or dangerous so don't be alarmed if you have it. No one knows what causes it and sadly, there are no permanent cure. On a lighter note, the symptoms can be treated.

Sunlight is thought to aggravate the symptoms so use a high protection sunblock. Alcohol, strenuous exercise, heat, spicy food and stress may worsen the flushing, while antibiotics can reduce skin inflammation and clear spots.
