Rosacea and Broken Blood Vessel

Is facial redness causing you embarrassment or concern? Rosacea is a common skin condition that can cause redness on your cheeks, chin, nose and forehead. Some individuals may also get bumps or pimples on the red areas of their faces or burning and soreness of their eyes.

What Causes Rosacea?

While the exact cause of rosacea is not known, it is more common in fair-skinned individuals and in those who blush easily. Rosacea also seems to run in families.

Rosacea symptoms can flare up with certain triggers such as sun, wind, hot weather, stress, spicy food, exercise, alcohol, hot baths and hot weather. Radical changes in temperature can also cause rosacea flare-ups.

What are the Signs & Symptoms of Rosacea?

Some of the common indicators of rosacea may include a flushed red face; an increased number of spider-like blood vessels; small bumps and pimples or acne-like breakouts; a red, bulbous nose; and dry, red and irritated eyes. These signs can be diagnosed readily by your Radiant Complexions dermatology expert.
