Nobody is the same yet everyone is equal for us.
Rosacea is a chronic and non-contagious skin disorder. Everyone who is known with this condition will find it very disturbing, because your face is marked by bright red discoloration, especially on the nose and cheeks.
Symptoms In advanced stages of rosacea, red bumps and red and yellowish pimples have developed. Because of these breakouts the condition is also referred to as acne rosacea, although rosacea has nothing to do with acne. In addition, dilated blood vessels, the telangiectasia, are present. Rosacea usually occurs in women between 30 and 50 years old. Rosacea is a progressive condition and present itself in three stages:
Stage 1 Visible diffuse redness, mainly on the cheeks. Development of small thin vessels (telangiectasias), which no longer disappear. The skin will react very sensitive to temperature changes, whereby your face will hurt after washing.
Stage 2 The appearance of red bumps and pimples, especially on your cheeks, chin and nose. Development of more dilated and thicker vessels is often seen. The skin is becoming more sensitive and will react more intense to external influences. Your pores will coarse and dander can occur.
Stage 3 Now, increasingly large pustules occur and the contour of your face can even change. The skin may thicken, for example in places near the nose, called rhinophyma.
