Rosacea – Broken Capillaries

How to Get Rid of Rosecea in New York

Rosacea is a common skin condition that is little understood by the general public. A skin condition that targets the facial region, rosacea leaves affected people with an acne-like, red-face appearance that needs to be treated. It sometimes affects the eyes, and it can in some cases also appear on the upper body. Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that requires ongoing treatment in order to keep it under control.

Cause of Rosacea

There is uncertainty as to exactly what causes rosacea. However, there are various possible explanations to account for the chronic skin condition. For example, some believe that rosacea may result when blood vessels in the facial region dilate excessively easily. When this happens, according to the theory, the increased blood close to the skin surface gives the skin a reddish and flushed appearance. While incidents of rosacea involving children are rare, there are documented cases of children and adolescents coming down with the condition. The condition also tends to run in families, which means that people who have a family history of rosacea should be particularly vigilant in taking proactive measures as per diagnosis and medical intervention before the skin disorder worsens.
