What is rosacea?

Rosacea is a skin condition that results in redness on the cheeks, nose, chin and forehead , and the appearance of dilated vessels on the cheeks and the wings of the nose . It predominantly affects women, from 30-40 years old, and occurs most often in people with fair skin. It is linked to vascular problems in the blood vessels of the face .

Rosacea is a progressive condition, which begins with occasional redness of the face , often associated with a "flush" or local hot flush, or even with burning or tingling sensations. This redness then becomes permanent and associated with visible dilated vessels with a  purplish red appearance 

The Rosacea is the permanent dilation of small vessels of the face, nose and cheekbones . This vascular form of the disease is the most common.

We speak of rosacea or acne rosacea when the disease progresses to a papulo-pustular form , with the appearance of papules (pimples without pus) and pustules (with pus), in addition to vascular signs. These lesions appear in flare-ups , without any particular triggering factor.

There is also a so-called hypertrophic form of the disease, which is rarer, and with a strong male predominance. It manifests itself by thickening of the skin of the face, in particular of the nose: it takes on a red and swollen appearance, with dilation of the pores of the skin. The ultimate stage of this hypertrophic form is rhinophyma , where the nose takes on a swollen and bumpy appearance.

This form, even more than the others, can have important psychological repercussions for aesthetic reasons.

Finally, ocular rosacea is another form of the disease, which is characterized by irritated, red, watery and light-sensitive eyes.

In addition, rosacea is often associated with the presence in the skin of the mite Demodex folliculorum , whose colonization is favored by skin edema and which could accentuate the inflammatory phenomena and trigger the formation of pimples characteristic of rosacea. .

The ruddy appearance of the face linked to rosacea, the red and swollen nose, the visible vessels have often been associated with alcoholism, which further accentuates the moral prejudice linked to this pathology . But contrary to popular belief, alcohol is not the cause of rosacea, even if it tends to make it worse.How to remove redness from the face naturally?
