Rosacea doesn’t have to be all about the red
For me, living with rosacea just seems to be a fact of life. I am fair skinned and began to see red patches popping up in my early 20’s. They would go away but as I got older, I noticed that these patches would stay around a little longer.
On my first visit to my dermatologist in my early 30’s, I learned that those red patches were not acne but instead they were rosacea. I had absolutely no idea what that was.
Did you know that rosacea is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition estimated to affect approximately 1 in 20 Americans? In fact, rosacea causes many sufferers to have low self-esteem (75%) and feel embarrassed (70%). I know that I have times where I am definitely feeling a little embarrassed and I just want to stay home because my face is red.
Because bumps and pimples are among the most common symptoms of rosacea, it is not surprising that nearly half (49%) of sufferers think they have acne before being correctly diagnosed with rosacea by a doctor. This is exactly what happened with me.
I began to notice that the redness and bumps would also appear at certain times. If I ate or drank certain things. Sun exposure. Heat. Stress. Exercise. All of those things could trigger rosacea and I really wanted to figure out how I could treat it.
