About Rosacea: An estimated 14 million Americans suffer from rosacea, which is characterized by redness, flushing, and blushing on the face. However, many people in the early stages of rosacea mistake their symptoms for sunburn, rash, or acne, causing them to delay diagnosis and treatment. Unfortunately, without treatment rosacea can worsen over time, with the initial redness worsening and becoming more persistent. Rosacea flushing episodes can be triggered by factors including extreme temperatures, hot drinks, spicy foods, caffeine, alcoholic beverages, irritating cosmetics and facial products, and rubbing, scrubbing or massaging the face. Some believe that the social and emotional effects of rosacea are worse than the actual physical symptoms. A survey conducted by the National Rosacea Society found that about 70 percent of patients said the condition lowered their self-esteem and self-confidence. Forty-one percent said it caused them to avoid public contact or cancel social engagements.
