Rosacea skin is an inflammatory skin disorder that mostly affects areas of the face that usually blush i.e. near the cheeks, nose, chin and forehead. When a person is affected by rosacea, he/she may find red spots and cysts on the face. The most venerable are people with light skin. It’s mostly common in women compared to men, but when men are affected it can be very severe. Rosacea doesn’t have whiteheads or blackheads like other acne.


Rosacea is a common skin disease found in people, the causes are still not clearly known. The presence of a certain bacteria on the skin is responsible for development of rosacea. There is a popular belief that people who blush a lot are more prone to this skin condition.

A lot of exposure to the sun may also lead to rosacea skin disease. People who engage in excessive alcohol consumption and spicy food are also prone to it. Stress, fear, anxiety etc can sometimes cause this skin disorder.


The most common symptom of rosacea is flushing. The face of the person grows red and looks like a sun burn case. The infected person may also see some red bumps and cysts on the face.
Rosacea is mostly a mild disorder, but if it aggravates you may also see tiny blood vessels below the skin. This condition is known as ‘telangiectasia’. A severe condition of rosacea can affect the nose, the nose size may enlarge and the cheeks may become puffy. Sometimes a person may develop eye problems like conjunctivitis.

A skin specialist will most likely prescribe oral antibiotics like amoxicillin, tetracycline, monocyline and doxycycline. Some people may be advised to apply topical creams to reduce skin inflammation and also avoid using harsh soaps but instead use of skin sensitive cleaners is recommended.

If the condition is very severe, the doctor may advise the patient to in for a laser treatment. Every person is recommended a different treatment according to his or her skin type and the respective condition.
