Recognizing Signs and Symptoms of Rosacea

Rosacea is a skin condition that causes repeated incidents of skin irritation. There are more than 13 million people who suffer from rosacea in the United States alone. Keep reading to learn more about this skin disorder and how to spot it.

Severe Flushing

One of the most noticeable signs of rosacea is a severe flushing in the face. This usually occurs right in the middle and is often accompanied by redness. If you have noticed that you blush more often than other people, you might be dealing with rosacea.

Broken Blood Vessels

If you can actually see broken blood vessels like spider veins when you look at your skin, there is a chance that you have rosacea. Talk to your dermatologist about your issues so he or she can make a true diagnosis and help you find a solution that alleviates symptoms like these.

Swelling, Pain, or Sensitive Skin

Sometimes rosacea merely causes swelling or sensitive skin. If the integrity of your skin has been compromised by rosacea, you might notice that it stings or burns easily. There could also be a lot of dry skin that feels rough to the touch. Make an appointment with the skin doctor to find a solution that clears up your skin and helps you feel your best.

Breakouts

Rosacea might also develop into breakouts that look like acne. They are often red and lead to patches of raised skin. Your skin might be extra oily if your rosacea leads to breakouts and it is important to talk to your doctor about your issues.
