What is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition affecting approximately 16 million Americans. Although more women suffer from rosacea, it is more severe in men and generally appears after the age of 30.
What Causes Rosacea?
The cause is unknown but it generally starts as redness on the cheeks, chin, nose or forehead and in the early stages has a tendency to come and go. As time passes, the redness becomes more constant and rosy.
These physical conditions and foods should be avoided, as they may aggravate rosacea:
*Direct sunlight without sunscreen
*Hot showers and saunas
*Medications that cause flushing
*Topical steroids used on the skin such as hydrocortisone cream
