Primary Signs of Rosacea

By in with 0 Comments

  • Flushing
    Many people with rosacea have a history of frequent blushing or flushing. This facial redness may come and go, and is often the earliest sign of the disorder.
  • Persistent Redness
    Persistent facial redness is the most common individual sign of rosacea, and may resemble a blush or sunburn that does not go away.
  • Bumps and Pimples
    Small red solid bumps or pus-filled pimples often develop. While these may resemble acne, blackheads are absent and burning or stinging may occur.
  • Visible Blood Vessels
    In many people with rosacea, small blood vessels become visible on the skin.

Other Potential Signs and Symptoms

  • Eye Irritation
    In many people with rosacea, the eyes may be irritated and appear watery or bloodshot, a condition known as ocular rosacea. The eyelids also may become red and swollen, and styes are common. Severe cases can result in corneal damage and vision loss without medical help.
  • Burning or Stinging
    Burning or stinging sensations may often occur on the face. Itching or a feeling of tightness may also develop.
  • Dry Appearance
    The central facial skin may be rough, and thus appear to be very dry.
  • Plaques
    Raised red patches, known as plaques, may develop without changes in the surrounding skin.
  • Skin Thickening
    The skin may thicken and enlarge from excess tissue, most commonly on the nose. This condition, known as rhinophyma, affects more men than women.
  • Swelling
    Facial swelling, known as edema, may accompany other signs of rosacea or occur independently.
  • Signs Beyond the Face
    Rosacea signs and symptoms may also develop beyond the face, most commonly on the neck, chest, scalp or ears.
