Rosacea and Sensitive Skin
Rosacea and Sensitive Skin
This can present as redness, dilated blood vessels and reactive skin which can easily flare up after triggers. People who suffer with this condition often have flushing of the skin, burning and stinging sensations and spots on the skin.
There are 4 types of rosacea Type 1 being the mildest to Type 4 being most severe.
- Type 1: Causes facial flushing and persistent redness in a butterfly distribution.
- Type 2: As above plus bumps and pimples on skin.
- Type3: All of the above plus enlargement of the nose (Rhinophyma)
- Type 4: Eye involvement as well as all of the above.
The exact cause of Rosacea is unknown but the following have been implicated:
- Unstable blood vessels causing persistent redness, sensitivity and flushing.
- Genetics: there is a positive family history in 30% of Rosacea sufferers.
- Overgrowth of Demodex mite (normally present on human skin).
- Abnormal skin function. Water loss from the surface of the skin can cause sensitivity and dehydration.
