Rosacea is a common skin disease affecting predominately fair skinned women who are over the age of 30. Although there are no specific known causes of rosacea, there are several factors that are believed to play a role in who develops the disease, including genetics and an over reactive immune response to certain bacteria. Patients who had acne during their teen years may also be more likely to develop rosacea as adults.
Although rosacea is typically not painful, patients who have it often feel embarrassed by the red, blotchy complexion that is the tell tale sign of the disease. In some cases the skin may sting or become more sensitive. Rosacea can often diminish both confidence and self esteem, affecting both personal and professional relationships.
