The causes of the skin condition are still somewhat unknown and can be triggered by a variety of things. However, we do know that the Demodex mite is a primary cause. These often harmless mites live on all of us, but, people with rosacea tend to have much more.
Triggers may also be hereditary or environmental. For some of you, hot and spicy foods, extreme temperatures, sunlight and the wrong cosmetic products can all play a part. Alcohol can also be seen as a large trigger.
Rosacea can differ significantly from person to person but generally is divided into the three most common subtypes, based on the severity and type of symptoms.
This is the most common form and appears as facial redness
Also known as Acne Rosacea, this appears as bumps and pus-filled pimples
Also known as Phymatous and rosacea rhinophyma, this is where the nose becomes enlarged and red
