What is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that causes redness, flushing, and small red bumps to appear around the nose, cheeks, eyes, and forehead. Rosacea affects more than 16 million Americans each year and typically appears in cycles of flare-ups. While there are over-the-counter creams and medications that claim to help reduce symptoms of rosacea, patients often find that seeing a dermatologist like Dr. Siddiqui is the best way to treat their condition.
What Causes Rosacea?
Unfortunately, scientists are still unsure why rosacea occurs in some patients and not others. While it is speculated that rosacea can be caused by genetics, we find that a variety of factors can contribute to a rosacea flare-up including eating spicy foods, drinking hot beverages, and eating items that contain the compound cinnamaldehyde like cinnamon and chocolate. Most patients who are affected by rosacea are between 30 and 50 years old and have fair skin.
