Rosacea News and Research

RSS
Rosacea is a common and chronic skin condition characterized by flushing, burning and stinging of the skin. The symptoms mainly appear on the face, often affecting the nose, cheeks and chin. Whilst it is not known exactly what causes rosacea, certain triggers have been identified. Common risk factors include sunlight exposure and hot weather, stress, certain foods and drinks, strenuous exercise and some medications.

Rosacea is estimated to affect up to 10% of people, with those aged between 30 and 50 being the most commonly affected. Whilst women tend to develop the condition more frequently than men, the symptoms of rosacea often present more severely in men.

Treatments for rosacea focus on managing the symptoms, as there is currently no cure for the condition. Identifying triggers and learning to avoid them play a large role in easing symptoms. Certain medicines, both topical and oral, may also be used to help control flare ups.
