If you suffer from rosacea, you are not alone. Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that afflicts millions of people across the world, in both men and women. Cases vary widely from very mild to severe, but it typically manifests itself in the face, resulting in redness of the skin, visible blood vessels, swelling, and pimples, particularly on the cheeks, chin and forehead. There is currently no cure for rosacea, nor are its causes truly understood. However, factors such as diet, sun, stress, alcohol and environmental exposure can cause the condition to flare up. It is also believed that it is more likely to affect people of fairer complexions who are over the age of 40.
