According to the National Rosacea Society “rosacea sufferers often experience flushing and persistent facial redness”, but that is not always the case, as every patient is different. There are four rosacea subtypes – Subtype 1: Facial Redness, Subtype 2: Bumps and Pimples, Subtype 3: Enlargement of the nose, and Subtype 4: Eye irritation.

Unfortunately the exact cause of rosacea is unknown, and people typically start experiencing symptoms in their early thirties. There is no cure and it’s a chronic condition. For those who have rosacea or suspect they have the chronic condition, it’s best to avoid “witch hazel, fragrance, menthol, peppermint, eucalyptus oil, clove oil and salicylic acid” as they typically irritate the skin. There are many different rosacea triggers including sun exposure, emotional stress, marinated meats, dairy products, heavy exercise and more!

With April being National Rosacea Awareness Month, the National Rosacea Society is sharing amazing tips from food triggers to common myths and treatment options on their website to help bring more awareness to the chronic condition that affects at least 16 million people across the U.S.
