Rosacea Treatment In Delray Beach FL
The earliest sign of rosacea is a tendency to blush more easily than others. The face, neck, and even upper chest area may redden and feel warm. Blushing – or facial flushing – is the result of increased blood flood.
For patients with rosacea, the blushing tends to start at the nose and cheeks, and then spread outward over time, resulting in noticeable redness at the forehead, chin, and even the ears. Red bumps that look like acne may appear and blood vessels in the area may become visible. The nose may become enlarged and eye problems could develop.
Women in middle age are most commonly affected by this chronic condition. Although its causes are not clear, rosacea may be the result of genetic predisposition as well as certain environmental factors.
Triggers that may cause rosacea flare-ups include:
- Heat and exposure to the sun
- Cold temperatures
- Physical exertion
- Spicy foods
- Alcohol, especially red wine
It’s important to know that rosacea does not go away on its own. If not treated, it will likely worsen over time.
