Rosacea – What Are the Possible Causes?
The causes of rosacea are rather unknown. However, the following factors might have a big influence on getting rosacea:
- The amount of microscopic mites on your face and their reaction to your skin (everyone has a few hundred to a few thousand mites on their face). This sounds terrible, but this is very normal and harmless usually.
- Abnormalities of blood vessels in the face.
- Exposure to sunlight.
- Stress (can cause abnormalities in the immune system which can cause inflammation).
- Extreme exercising.
- Very hot or very cold weather.
- Hot drinks.
- Spicy foods.
Rosacea has a variety of symptoms that can differ from person to person. Most Symptoms begin with short periods of ‘flushing’ (attacks of redness of the skin). However, over time the following symptoms might occur:
- Burning sensations.
- Stinging sensations.
- Visible blood vessels in the skin.
- Eye Irritations.
- Insecurity about appearance (causing more stress which becomes a virtuous circle).
Although the these symptoms mainly occur in a later stage, the can be episodic (bad episodes) but also remain constant (never goes away).
Don’t Worry Rosacea is Common
Rosacea occurs in 1 out of 10 people. People with fair skin are more prone to it, but people of Asian and African heritage can get it also. The age that people tend to get it is between 30 and 50. Furthermore, Rosacea is more common in women.
The Treatment for Rosacea
There is no cure that works for everybody. The cause of Rosacea can vary from person to person which makes it difficult to tackle the core of the problem. Most treatments for Rosacea have the goal to lessen the symptoms, but not to stop it completely. There has not been a lot of research about Rosacea since it’s not a deadly skin disorder, but I think it’s underestimated what it can do to someone psychologically and the pain and danger that comes with it. Stress can shorten your life (up to 10 years!) depending on the severity. The
following treatments can help to improve the symptoms:
- Avoiding alcohol.
- Avoiding caffeine.
- Avoid too much sunlight.
- Mindfulness to reduce stress.
- Exercise to reduce stress. Click here for more information.
- Sleep the amount of time that feels healthy for you (listen to your body).
- Creams and gels (recommended to reduce symptoms).
