Rosacea Symptoms

In order to know if you are a potential victim of Rosacea, it would be best to know what the different symptoms of Rosacea are. Of course you can identify a particular disease by knowing how it manifests itself on and its particular characteristics. The early detection of such symptoms may help you treat the disease early on in order to avoid developing an extreme case of the disease. Knowing what the possible symptoms may be can help you administer a cure early on.

First and foremost, you need to understand what Rosacea is. This disease is a chronic condition which looks like the typical acne that most people experience. It occurs intermittently which means that the disease may show girl-with-rosacea-on-faceup and disappear on different periods. As of now, definite cure has been found for this particular disease although the symptoms can be controlled as well as the severity of the symptoms. The causes of this condition are however, undetermined up to now. Hence, detecting the symptoms early on would be the ideal step in trying to prevent or minimize the occurrence of this condition.

Some of the more common symptoms of Rosacea are found to be the following: flushing, redness that extends for longer periods than what is normal, the appearance of dilated blood vessels on the surface of the screen, the development of red bumps which may also be pus-filled at times, the gradual thickening of the skin, and in some cases, a redness or irritation of the eyes. These symptoms may not occur all at once in a particular patient. Some patients experience only one symptom at a time although there may be more than one on others. The case varies from one person to another depending on their susceptibility to breakouts from the disease.

Flushing occurs when the face suddenly turns red with no particular reason. This is different from normal flushing which often happens for several known reasons. Next, the blushing lasts for not just few minutes but days and weeks. The redness is also deeper and darker in color than what normal people experience which makes the person conscious with how he or she looks. Third, a Rosacea sufferer will also experience having dilated blood vessels appear on the surface of the skin. This can occur together with the blushing and the development of papules or pustules on the skin. These are red and swollen bumps which may feel itchy or may sting a bit and may or may not contain pus.

In more advanced and severe cases, the skin starts to gradually thicken particularly around the area of the nose. This condition may become a serious problem if left untreated for some time as the skin may really get thick as to deform the nose. Some people have experienced this but more commonly, the condition happens only with men. Another advanced condition of Rosacea produces ocular Rosacea. This is an eye which has been affected by Rosacea and can lead to possible loss of vision if left untreated.
