When you have irregularities in the skin of the face, it is necessary to consult with specialized information to define the problem and find a viable solution.

What is rosacea?

Dermatologists define rosacea as a disease that causes flushing of the skin of the face. It shows up as a redness of the face as well as allows the blood vessels in this area to be noticed.

In some cases, rosacea can present with small bumps with pus and that is why it is often confused with acne, however they are two different skin conditions.

What causes rosacea?

A specific cause has not been confirmed, yet science attributes this problem to factors related to genetic inheritance, irregularities in the immune system and even situations in the environment that stimulate the problem.

At the same time, dermatological medicine has managed to confirm that the following factors can help trigger the onset or flare-up of rosacea.

Other risk factors for rosacea may include:

Symptoms of rosacea.

Rosacea can be recognized by the following symptoms:

Types of rosaceae.

There are six types of rosaceae that are characterized by presenting different symptoms from each other.

Granulomatous rosacea:

It presents with papules and/or nodules in the cheek area, although they can be irrigated to the area around the mouth and eyes. The color of the nodules can vary from red, yellow, and even brown.

Another characteristic of this type of condition is that, in some cases, the irrigation can affect the patient’s neck, décolleté, back, and even the scalp.

Phymatous rosacea:

It has a higher incidence in men, with papules and nodules on the skin but accompanied by thickening of the skin. If the skin disease is allowed to progress, it can develop into a rhinophyma, which is the bulbous appearance of the nose as a result of inflammation.

This bulbous appearance can appear on the chin, ears, eyelids and even on the forehead, so it is important to treat the condition to restore the patient’s confidence.

Papulopustular rosacea:

It is often confused with acne because it has the appearance of pimples along rosacea.

Telangiectatic rosacea erythemato:

This type of condition presents the flushing unexpectedly for short periods of time, usually the patient is able to identify the reason why the flushing is triggered.

In addition, it produces telangiectatic which dilates the blood vessels of the face that are noticeable as spider veins in the affected area.

Fulminant rosacea:

It is the severe type of the condition, it has a severe inflammatory feature that threatens to leave scars on the patient.

It is a condition that evolves quickly and the problem lies when the papules and pustules that break out converge with each other causing damage to the skin.

Ocular rosacea:

It directly affects the eyes including the eyelids and cornea, producing symptoms such as blurred vision, ulcers, rupture of the blood vessels in the eyes, etc.

Most cases accompany another type of rosacea with cutaneous symptoms.

Diagnosis of rosacea.

To diagnose this condition, examination by a specialist is necessary. Your dermatologist will discuss your symptoms and lifestyle, as well as perform a skin evaluation.

In some cases, specific tests may be recommended to rule out other diseases such as lupus.

Once the diagnosis has been made, the dermatologist will be able to define a treatment route based on the type of condition and severity.

Treatment for rosacea.

Before establishing possible treatments, it is necessary to indicate that rosacea is a condition that has no cure, dermatologists offer options to reduce symptoms and help the patient regain their image and self-confidence.

Drugs:

The pharmaceutical option is based on topical ointments that decrease flushing and help break down dilated blood vessels. Antibiotics and anti-inflammatories may also be recommended. Acne medications can also work for rosacea, although it doesn't apply in all cases.

Laser:

This procedure, considered as a cosmetic treatment, uses the power of the laser to treat the inner part of the skin and thus remove the blood vessels that rupture inside. Before making the decision of this treatment, it is necessary to rely on the guidance of a dermatologist who explains the phases of the process, prevents side effects and establishes the viability of the treatment.
