Rosacea Toronto

Rosacea TorontoRosacea is a chronic skin condition that primarily affects the face. It is most common in middle-aged or older adults and tends to impact women more than men. It is also more common in people with fair skin. However, rosacea can affect anyone.

Rosacea can present with a number of noticeable symptoms. Here, our skin experts at D Luxe Lab explain how you can tell if you have rosacea and what you can do about it.

How Can You Tell If You Have Rosacea?

Rosacea can present with a variety of symptoms. These symptoms can vary from person to person, and it is rare for someone to have all of the symptoms that are associated with rosacea. Additionally, while rosacea is a long-lasting condition with no cure, it tends to present in cycles. This means that someone with rosacea may experience flare-ups of symptoms and then periods of no symptoms.  If you are experiencing any of the below symptoms, you may have rosacea.

Flushing or Blushing

One of the primary symptoms of rosacea is facial redness which can present as flushing or blushing. You may notice that the facial redness starts to last longer and is accompanied by a tingling or burning sensation.

A Rash, Bumps or Pimples

Another common symptom of rosacea is the development of a red facial rash, red bumps or pus-filled pimples. The pimples can resemble acne. The skin may also burn or sting.

Visible Blood Vessels

People with rosacea often have visible blood vessels on the cheeks and nose. The blood vessels can look like thin red lines.

Other Symptoms

The above symptoms are the most common signs that someone may have rosacea. However, rosacea can present in other ways, including the following:

  • Eye irritation
  • Raised red patches of skin
  • Rough and dry skin
  • Skin thickening
  • Facial swelling

What Can You Do About Rosacea?
