Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory within the pilosebaceous glands that causes rosacea sufferers to blush more easily than other people. People affected by rosacea also tend to have easily irritable skin and can't tolerate a variety of skincare products.
It can be difficult to distinguish between rosacea and other skin conditions such as acne, dermatitis and allergic reactions because of their similar and often overlapping symptoms. However, if left untreated, rosacea can cause irreversible damage to the skin and eyes. Here are the signs of rosacea you should look out for:
Flushing: When your skin turns red for a brief period of time, usually a few minutes. The redness appears on the cheeks, nose and chin but can also spread to the neck and chest.
Persistent redness: Facial redness that looks like a sunburn or a stubborn rash.
Visible blood vessels: Over time the blood vessels in the skin may become permanently dilated and show through more prominently.
Thickened skin: In the most serious cases of rosacea the skin can thicken and form excess tissue, usually around the nose.
