What Causes Rosacea?

When the face is red from rosacea, the redness is caused by the blood vessels becoming dilated and visible through the skin. Those suffering from rosacea are just more prone to this dilation or flushing than others.

Doctors are unsure of exactly what causes rosacea. The redness is not from an infection, and the overabundance of fungus is not present in those suffering from rosacea. In the past, it was thought that rosacea was a side effect of alcohol abuse, but that was disproved, although drinking alcohol may cause symptoms to flare-up and induce redness.

You may be more likely to suffer from rosacea if you are female, have fair skin, or if any other family members have rosacea. Links have been made between those who struggle with other health problems and rosacea. For example people that get migraines, have other skin problems, or eye disorders are at a higher risk for developing rosacea.

Knowing and avoiding the factors that aggravate the skin may help suppress the symptoms of rosacea. There are a few key triggers that have been determined to cause the symptoms of rosacea.

Triggers may not be the same for all, but may include:

  • Exposure to heat
  • Heavy exercise
  • Sunlight
  • Excessive wind
  • Extreme cold
  • Spicy or hot food and beverages
  • Menopause
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Long term use of steroids on the face
  • Genetics
  • Clogged pores with skin mites
  • Weak immune system
  • Hot showers or baths
  • Humidity
  • Sudden change in emotion
  • Embarrassment
  • Extreme laughter
  • Chronic coughing
  • Caffeine withdrawal
  • Irritating skin products
  • Medications, like topical steroids and some painkillers

In some cases, rosacea flare-ups can be avoided by staying away from the things that trigger symptoms. If the symptoms are too much to handle, a doctor may be able to prescribe something to help minimize flushing and take care of any acne that may accompany the rosacea.
