Redness & Sign of Rosacea

Redness &
Sign of Rosacea

Redness is due to the dilation of blood vessels in the skin. Facial flushing (neck and chest) can be a normal bodily response.

Whether caused by heat, emotion, stress, the condition of blood vessels, an allergic reaction, the sun, or an underlying medical condition, redness is often bothersome.

Sign of rosacea (couperose) is a vascular abnormality characterized by the dilation of small superficial vessels in the skin, mainly located on the nose, chin, forehead, and cheeks. It is more common in fair-skinned women over 30 years old. Men may have localized redness primarily on the nose.

Some factors can increase the risk of redness and sign of rosacea, such as heredity, sun exposure, consumption of hot drinks, spicy foods, alcohol, hormone fluctuations, and certain medications.

The commonly used term for an aggravated condition is rosacea. It is important to understand that only a doctor can diagnose this condition.
