Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that affects millions of Americans. Its exact cause remains unknown, but at Kaua’i Medspa, we have effective ways to manage the condition and reduce its impact on your skin.
Rosacea is characterized by small, red, pus-filled bumps on the skin, typically appearing on the nose, cheeks, and forehead during flare-ups. These flare-ups occur in cycles, with symptoms recurring for weeks or months before subsiding and returning again.
There are four main subtypes of rosacea:
The exact cause of rosacea is not yet determined, but it is believed to involve a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Certain triggers can worsen symptoms, including consuming spicy foods, foods containing cinnamaldehyde (such as cinnamon, chocolate, tomatoes, and citrus), hot beverages, the presence of Helicobacter pylori bacteria in the gut, the skin mite Demodex and the bacterium it carries (Bacillus oleronius), and an overproduction of a protective protein called cathelicidin.
Risk factors for developing rosacea include age (typically between 30 and 50), fair skin, blond hair, blue eyes, a family history of the condition, and Celtic or Scandinavian ancestry. While women are more prone to developing rosacea, men who develop the condition often experience more severe symptoms.
