Mild Rosacea

Does your face always looked flushed or red? If so, you may be experiencing a skin condition called mild rosacea. Rosacea afflicts millions of Americas every year and sadly most of the people have never even heard of it before their cosmetic dermatologist diagnoses them.

Rosacea plays no favorites, men and women both have this disorder, occurring most often in people between the ages of 30-50 who have fair skin and blush easily.

Rosacea appears in the form of red cheeks, as well as bumps and/or swelling that surface on the nose, cheeks, forehead, and chin. In most cases Rosacea often mimics acne.

Rosacea can be persistent issue if left untreated. In most cases treatment is required in order for healing to occur. If you are simply experiencing a slight redness to your cheeks, this is considered mild rosacea. But the most rigorous types can cause the skin that covers your nose to become swollen and red permanently unless otherwise treated.
