Rosacea is an inflammatory skin condition and is most often identified by areas of prolonged redness or flushing of the skin. If you have rosacea it is likely that your face gets hot, stings or burns and feels uncomfortable on a regular basis, with more severe cases developing bumpy or swollen skin over time.
Rosacea typically presents on the cheeks, nose and forehead but it can also affect the eyelids in more extreme cases. Your skin will also be quite reactive to the environment and your lifestyle, as rosacea tends to have triggers that make it worse such as eating spicy foods, drinking alcohol and sun exposure. If you are in any doubt, don’t hesitate to visit your GP for more advice on this condition.
