If your face is naturally red, you might have rosacea. You probably feel like you’re the only one with red cheeks, but don’t worry! Rosacea is a very common skin condition that is completely treatable, even though there is no official cure. At the Miami Center for Dermatology, we want to help you with all of your skin needs, especially if you’re one of the three million people in the United States who suffer from this skin condition. April is Rosacea Awareness Month, so it’s the perfect time to get educated on everything about this condition and how you should prevent it from getting worse over time.
As mentioned before, rosacea is a very common skin condition; however, it is especially common in thirty to sixty-year-old women who have fair skin. An important thing to note is that rosacea isn’t just red skin. Symptoms of this condition can be small, pus-filled red bumps, as well as a large nose, irritation, eye dryness, and general swelling.
Many women use full-coverage, heavy makeup to hide their red skin, but those bumps can show through even a thousand layers of foundation. Now that it’s Rosacea Awareness Month, it’s time to get rid of those symptoms as much as possible, so they don’t get worse over time and cause you even more distress.
Rosacea can happen in your skin for many reasons. In some patients, rosacea is primarily caused by environmental reasons, while in other patients, rosacea is caused mainly by hereditary and genetic reasons. Some of the factors you can try to avoid are consuming hot foods and beverages, consuming spicy foods, consuming alcohol, being in saunas, and using corticosteroids. These can all cause your face to get red, which you want to stay away from so that your skin will appear less red and irritated.
