Acne and rosacea

Redness and breakouts on our face could mean that we have acne, but not always. Rosacea, an acne-like skin condition can cause breakouts and redness too. It is a skin condition that is  chronic and inflammatory in nature and most often affects the face. If left untreated it worsens with time. It is often mistaken for acne, eczema, or a skin allergy. Fair skin people and who tend to blush easily might be at a higher risk for the disorder. Rosacea seems more often among women than men but men tend to have the more severe symptoms. A possible reason for this could be the delay in medical treatment until the symptoms of the disease becomes advanced. Although the causes are not fully understood and there is no cure, there are a number of ways to relieve symptoms.

A condition known as steroid rosacea is an outcome from long-term use of corticosteroids, specifically when used to treat diseases like dermatitis and vitiligo.
