WHAT CAUSES ROSACEA?

Learn more with hub.health

As with many skin conditions, the cause of rosacea is undetermined and can be influenced by a number of factors.

Research has identified some potential common causes amongst patients, including environmental factors, hereditary traits, an overactive immune system or a combination of these.

Whatever the cause of your rosacea, hub.health is here to help alleviate the symptoms.

How common is rosacea and what are the causes?

Rosacea does not discriminate against age, race or gender, meaning anyone can develop the condition. With this in mind, research shows us that rosacea is more common among middle-aged and older people. Rosacea is also more common in women, however when men develop the condition, the symptoms tend to be more severe.

It’s important to note that rosacea is not caused by poor hygiene and it is not contagious.

Rosacea can appear at any stage in life and once diagnosed with the condition, it is common for flare-ups to occur in the future.

Although triggers will vary from person to person, flare-ups are commonly attributed to warm weather conditions, stress, alcohol, hot drinks or spicy foods.

Results with Rosacea Treatment

Although the origin of your rosacea may be unknown, there are things you can do to effectively manage the condition, in combination with medical treatment.

People with rosacea have a greater degree of skin sensitivity, so it’s essential to avoid any possible irritants.

A dermatologist-developed skin care routine is recommended, but it is important to note that, due to the sensitive nature of the condition, you should avoid scrubbing or exfoliating the face, as this can often lead to further irritation.

It’s time to look after your health

By paying close attention to your environment when a flare-up occurs, you have a better chance of identifying what triggers your rosacea.

Once identified, you can make minor adjustments to your surroundings or diet, in order to reduce the likelihood of a flare-up in the future. The hub.health medical team delivers skin care solutions to effectively manage rosacea.

Rosacea triggers will differ from person to person. You may find it beneficial to keep a diary to help identify what triggers your rosacea

Rosacea is an inflammatory condition that exclusively affects the face. However, in some cases people may experience symptoms on their ears, eyes, neck, upper back, and chest.

Since the symptoms of rosacea vary for each person, personalised treatment must be prescribed by a medical professional on a case-by-case basis. Depending on severity of symptoms, a range of oral and topical medications can be used to treat redness and control flare ups. Long-term anti-inflammatory therapy may be prescribed to maintain remission. Laser therapies and lifestyle modifications may also be recommended.

Unfortunately, there’s no cure for rosacea, however the condition is manageable with appropriate treatments prescribed by a clinician or skin specialist.
