Rosacea is a long term inflammatory skin condition that causes reddened skin and a rash usually on the nose and cheeks.
The primary features (you may have one or more of these) are:+ Redness coming and going (flushing) or permanent redness

+ Papules & pustules
+ Spider veins
You may also experience secondary features such as
+ Burning or stinging
+ Thick skin
+ Dry appearance
+ Swelling
+ Red, watery and/or bloodshot eyes
+ symptoms in other areas
+ Bumpy thick skin and large pores especially around the nose

The causes of Rosacea are not fully understood but could be attributed to genetics, immune system problems, the Demodex Mite and environmental factors. There are many triggers that may make Rosacea worse, these include:

+ Heavy exercise
+ High & low temperatures, high winds, humidity
+ Food and drink such as caffeine, alcohol, lactose, gluten, etc
+ Stress/anxiety
+ Medication
+ Skincare products
