Symptoms of Rosacea
There are four main symptoms of Rosacea:
- Redness: persistent flushing of the face, often around the nose and cheeks.
- Thread veins: visible blood vessels that do not disappear.
- Papules, pustules and spots: round red bumps which may be filled with pus or fluid.
- Thickening of the skin: excess, bumpy tissue, especially around the nose. This only occurs in the most serious, long-standing cases of rosacea and almost never affects female sufferers.
How Can I Prevent Breakouts?
As rosacea is a chronic condition and there is no known cure, the best way to help prevent regular flare-ups is to try and identify your triggers and avoid these where possible. Keep a food diary and a make a note of which products you use on your skin; avoid sun exposure and try to limit your intake of caffeine and alcohol.
