Skin sensitivity and rosacea

Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes blushing or flushing and visible blood vessels in your face.  It may also produce small, pus-filled bumps.  These signs and symptoms may flare up for weeks or months and then go away for a while.  Rosacea can be mistaken for acne, other skin problems or natural ruddiness.  Rosacea can affect anyone.  But it is most common in middle-aged women.  There is no cure for rosacea, but treatment can help control and reduce the signs and symptoms.

Causes:

The cause of rosacea is unknown, but it could be due to an overactive immune system, heredity, environmental factors or a combination of these.  Rosacea is not caused by poor hygiene and it's not contagious.

Flare-ups may be triggered by:

*Hot drinks and spicy foods

*Red wine and other alcoholic beverages

*Temperature extremes

*Sun or wind

*Emotions

*Exercise

*Drugs that dilate blood vessels, including some blood pressure medications
