What Is Rosacea?

If you have Rosacea, please don’t feel like you're alone in it. Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes facial flushing, irritation and pimples. Rosacea often gets mistaken for acne or eczema, with many people often misdiagnosed at first. The most common symptoms of Rosacea include:

Facial Redness

For most people, Rosacea will cause facial redness. The small blood vessels on your cheeks and nose get swollen and become more visible. 

Swollen, Red Bumps

Another common symptom is your skin having swollen, red bumps all over. This is the reason that Rosacea often gets mistaken for acne, as it can look similar.  

Eye Problems

Rosacea can also cause eye problems which makes your eyes and eyelids feel dry, irritated and swollen. This is known as Ocular Rosacea and can become very uncomfortable when left untreated.

Enlarged Nose

Only a small percentage of people struggle with this condition, but over time, Rosacea can cause the skin around the nose to appear bulbous. This condition is more common in men. 

Does Rosacea Get Worse In Summer?

Rosacea symptoms can fluctuate throughout the different seasons of the year. Research by the National Rosacea Society has shown that 85% of people with Rosacea said their condition is affected by changes in seasons. Half of participants in the study said that their symptoms get worse when the weather gets warmer. If you have Rosacea, you have a 50% chance of experiencing worse symptoms throughout the summer. Luckily, you don’t have to wait around until it happens to you.
