Rosacea is a very common skin disease that causes small, red and pus-filled bumps on the skin during flare-ups. It tends to appear on the nose, cheeks and forehead and may come and go over time.
There are four distinct types of rosacea:
Also known as erythematotelangiectatic rosacea (ETR), this form causes flushing, redness and visibly blood vessels, among other symptoms.
Subtype Two. Also known as papulopustular rosacea, subtype two is characterized by flare-ups that look like acne. Sufferers often report oily skin, increased sensitivity, visible broken blood vessels and raised patches of skin. It also tends to occur among middle-aged women.
Subtype Three. This relatively rare form of rosacea is also called rhinophyma. It’s most common among men and results in thick skin on the nose, bumpy skin texture, large pores and visibly broken blood vessels.
Subtype Four. Ocular rosacea causes symptoms centered around the delicate eye area, such as bloodshot and watery eyes, sensitivity to light, a burning sensation, diminished vision and more.
What causes Rosacea?
The precise cause of rosacea is not known. However, certain things can trigger a flare-up, including hot drinks, spicy foods, alcohol, extreme temperatures, exposure to wind or sunlight, and cosmetics.
