Rosacea

What is rosacea?

Rosacea is a skin condition in Singapore characterised by visible blood vessels in the face and cheeks, causing you to look like you are blushing or flushing. While rosacea is a common skin condition that affects mostly white women in their 30s, anyone can have this skin condition.

Rosacea flare-ups are often mistaken as an acne outbreak and lasts for weeks or months at a time.

Although there is no cure for rosacea, there are treatments that can help to control and reduce its signs and symptoms — this means less pain and discomfort.

What causes rosacea?

Contrary to popular belief, rosacea is not caused by poor hygiene and you cannot get it from someone with rosacea (not contagious). The cause of rosacea is widely unknown but it may be caused by an overactive immune system, genetics, environmental factors or even a combination of these.

Common symptoms of rosacea in Singapore

  • Facial blushing/flushing (might be difficult to see on brown or Black skin)
  • Visible veins (visible on your nose and cheek)
  • Swollen bumps (resembles pimples and can sometimes contain pus)
  • Burning sensation (your skin might feel hot and tender)
  • Problems with the skin around your eyes (dry, irritated and swollen eyes or eyelids)
  • Enlarged nose (thickened skin on your nose)

What triggers rosacea?

  • Consuming hot drinks and spicy foods
  • Red wine and other alcoholic beverages
  • Extreme temperatures
  • Sun or wind
  • Heightened emotions
  • Rigorous exercise
  • Drugs that dilate blood vessels (such as blood pressure medications)
  • Certain cosmetic, skin or hair products

Is rosacea painful?

Patients affected by rosacea frequently experience discomfort such as burning or stinging sensations. While symptoms of rosacea can affect your appearance, people with rosacea generally cite that the physical pain overshadows any cosmetic-related side effect.

When left untreated, rosacea can have a significant impact on your emotional well-being.

Who is at risk of rosacea in Singapore?

Anyone is at risk of developing rosacea but it most commonly affects middle-aged white women.

Certain factors that increase this risk include:

  • Being female (by birth)
  • If your skin burns easily in the sun
  • Being over the age of 30
  • Smoking
  • Having a family history of rosacea

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you clear up rosacea?

Some lifestyle changes and home remedies can help with controlling rosacea flare-ups and reduce symptoms or relieve discomfort. The first step is to identify what triggers rosacea flare-ups and avoid those triggers. Protecting your face from harsh sunlight by applying sunscreen can greatly help to prevent flare-ups too. And lastly, being gentle with your skin can help to prevent flare-ups or any flare-ups from getting worse. If you are consistently being affected, it’s best to seek professional assistance to calm your flare-ups.

Can you ever get rid of rosacea?

Symptoms related to rosacea tend to come and go with no permanent cure. Professional treatments and taking good care of your skin by using gentle cleansers do make it possible to control and manage rosacea. If your trigger is food-related, it’s best to avoid them completely unless advised otherwise by your doctor.

Is rosacea a serious problem?

Rosacea is a permanent skin condition, making it serious to a certain extent depending on how frequent or severe your flare-ups are. Patients with undiagnosed rosacea sometimes find themselves in pain for extended periods of time and it can disrupt their emotional and physical well-being.

Can rosacea go away naturally?

Severe cases of rosacea do not go away on their own. For mild cases, it can sometimes go away for a period of time after proper treatment with a doctor. However, it highly depends on what triggers your flare-ups — lasting for weeks or months. Avoiding these triggers can help keep flare-ups at bay.
