103 18
There a a few signs and symptoms of Rosacea that will be unraveled in this article to give you a better understanding of this skin disease and know if and when it is affecting you.
In the first case, Rosacea will appear rather unknowingly.
Blushing and/or flushing is most often the first sign but it may take a while for us to realize that this is in fact a sign of Rosacea and not just a sign of being embarrassed or too hot.
It might not be until the next stage that you will think back and question all those times that you blushed rather too easily.
Over time, this frequent blushing/flushing will develop into a permanent red appearance on the skin's surface, paired with some pimples and noticeable blood vessels showing through the layer of skin.
The nose and/or cheeks tend to be affected primarily, but this can spread to other areas of the face such as the chin or the forehead.
Eventually, around half of Rosacea sufferers will get Rosacea around the eyes - causing inflammation, bloodshot eyes and a dry, irritated sensation.
Although most cases of Rosacea or predominant on the patient's face, it is possible to get it in other parts of the body such as the back and chest or scalp, ears and neck.
So to summarize the signs and symptoms of Rosacea please take a look at the list below.
Not everyone will have the exact same signs of Rosacea, but it does tend to revolve around a handful of classic symptoms.
If you think that you are suffering from the symptoms below then don't hesitate to seek advice form a medical professional.
The flushing/blushing period might not be so severe - but if you don't treat it early on the effects of Rosacea will become increasingly undesirable and more problematic to overcome.
*Burning, Itching or Stinging.
Some Rosacea sufferers will feel physically uncomfortable with the sensation of either burning, itching or stinging on the surface of the skin.
This is the medical term referring to the visibility of swelling and a bumpy complexion on the nose.
This is most common in male patients (think W.
Fields) and left untreated can give the impression of a swollen nose - out of proportion with the rest of the facial features.
*Enlarged Blood Vessels.
When the skin is flushing, people with Rosacea report the appearance of fine red lines on the surface of the skin - especially on the cheeks.
These red lines are in actual fact blood vessels that become visible due to enlargement.
Once the blushing has calmed down the red lines may remain.
The onset of Rosacea pimples tends to come a little further down the line.
Untreated cases of Rosacea are highly likely to be accompanied with some small, red pimples that may contain pus.
They tend to be in high numbers and make the skin seem rough.
This is not to be confused with acne.
The most common sign of Rosacea is blushing or flushing on the face and sometimes the neck.
A red face might not be the cause of embarrassment alone and if it becomes frequent you should seriously consider visiting your doctor.
