Acne Rosacea

October 17, 2011

Acne Rosacea is a common skin problem often called “adult acne.” It is a chronic (long-term, progressive) acne-like
eruption on the face of middle aged and older adults associated with facial flushing. Faired skinned and menopausal women are more likely to have Rosacea.
Rosacea also seems to run in families. It causes redness in the center parts of the face and pimples. Blood vessels under the skin of the face may enlarge and show through the skin as small red lines. The skin may be swollen and feel warm.

Women with Rosacea don’t have the same lesions as seen with common acne. They may have flushing of the face, when they
are hot, drink alco­hol or hot drinks, or eat spicy foods. This flushing causes the face to appear red. In the most severe form, this red­ness does not go away. The eyes may become swollen and nodules in the skin may be painful.
