Although quite common, rosacea is still poorly understood and often misdiagnosed. Typically, this condition appears in mid-life and is characterized by facial redness and itchy skin bumps. If left untreated, it can worsen, resulting in the appearance of inflamed papules and pustules on the cheek and nose. Rosacea is often embarrassing and distressing for those struggling with it. If you’re struggling with this condition, we can help. Request an appointment here in Concord, MA.
What Causes Rosacea?
The exact cause of this condition is uncertain. However, this illness has been linked to the overproduction of cathelicidin peptide protein. When a lot of this protein is made, skin redness and inflammation are soon to follow. This immune response can be triggered by genetic, environmental, or a combination of both factors. Since it has so many triggers, it’s hard to identify one single source of flare-ups.
What Are the Signs?
Typical signs of rosacea include facial redness, red bumps that sometimes contain pus, and skin irritation. Some people may experience ocular rosacea, characterized by inflammation and bumps around the eyes. In both cases, the condition may feel uncomfortable and difficult to look at. If these symptoms align with what you’re going through, we encourage you to request an appointment.
