Rosacea is a hereditary condition characterised by the appearance of dilated blood vessels appearing near the surface of the skin, reddening the face.
Rosacea affects more than 40 million people worldwide and is most common in people aged between 25 and 50. It is a visible and relapsing condition, meaning that patients experience periods of flare-ups. Every individual’s experience is different, making it a complex condition to treat.
People with very light skin are more likely to have rosacea as their skin is far more sensitive to external stresses such as weather. Symptoms of rosacea include red, hot, inflamed skin and bumps.
Rosacea can impact badly on patients’ quality of life. People with rosacea may feel embarrassed or ashamed to talk about their condition with many admit that friends and family did not understand their condition.
