Rosacea is a common skin disease affecting more than 14 million people in the US. In most cases, rosacea begins with a tendency to flush more easily in the face. It can be triggered by caffeine, alcohol, spicy foods, heat and emotional stress. New blood vessels can develop on the skin and redness can slowly spread beyond the nose and cheeks to other parts of the face, ears, neck, chest and back. People with rosacea can develop eye symptoms and thickening of the skin. The exact causes of rosacea remain unknown. To learn more about how we treat rosacea, please contact us today.
