What is Rosacea (Rose disease)?

Posted on by Ersin Koseoglu

Rosacea is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition that manifests as red patches and roughness, especially in the central areas of the face. It is more common in fair-skinned people. Sun damage and genetic predisposition are important factors in the development of rosacea anxiety. In addition to genetic predisposition, Helicobacter pylori (a kind of infection developing in the digestive system) infection, weak and unstable vessels, some chemical agents applied externally to the skin, consumed foods and psychogenic Factors are also among the causes of Rosacea concerns.

Sun rays, temperature, alcohol consumption, spicy foods are factors that worsen the symptoms of Rosacea.

Exposure to sunlight, in particular, causes cracking of blood vessels. This leads to rosacea symptoms such as facial redness and hot flashes. Therefore, sunscreen is one of the most important products for rosacea concerns. Since the skin is sensitive, sunscreens containing 100% mineral filters should be preferred.

In rosacea concerns, the skin color on the nose and cheek areas changes from pink to red and the skin becomes sensitive. The skin can overreact to even the slightest change in internal (body) - external (environment) temperature. For example, skin with rosacea concerns overreacts to increased body temperature or exposure to cold weather conditions as a result of stress or exercise.

If rosacea is left untreated and left to itself, it will progress and get worse. The sensitivity of the skin is constantly increasing, and the skin begins to react to anything that is applied to or comes into contact with the skin.

It can develop on oily or dry skin. There may also be acne-like lumps on the skin that are not actually acne. This type is also called Acne-Rosacea.
