The Impact of rosacea on skin and its causes, symptoms, types and treatment methods.
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that affects over 16 million people in the United States alone. It is characterized by redness, flushing, and inflammation of the skin, particularly on the face. While rosacea is not life-threatening, it can be a source of embarrassment and discomfort for those who suffer from it. There are the four main types of rosacea: Erythematotelangiectatic Rosacea, also known as ETR, is characterized by facial redness and visible blood vessels. The redness may be constant or come and go, and can be exacerbated by heat, cold, and other environmental triggers. People with ETR may also experience a burning or stinging sensation on their skin. This type of rosacea is more common in women than men and is often mistaken for other skin conditions such as eczema or sunburn. Papulopustular rosacea, also known as acne rosacea, is characterized by acne-like breakouts on the face.Author(s): Martin Kassir*
