Can rosacea be itchy?
Some people with rosacea may experience itchiness, but itching can aggravate your skin and worsen the appearance of rosacea.
This itching may be down to folliculitis, where the hair follicles become inflamed, sometimes caused by ingrown hairs.
An infection from the bacteria Staphylococcus can develop in inflamed hair follicles on the face of someone with rosacea, but this can be treated with a course of antibiotics or topical creams.
If you’re a man suffering from rosacea, shaving can irritate your skin, so you may want to give up shaving altogether - but if this isn’t for you, try to use a new razor each time to prevent folliculitis from occurring.
What causes rosacea?
Rosacea is a skin condition that causes your face to take on a red, flushed appearance - it can also produce pus-filled bumps, but this shouldn’t be confused with acne.
It can affect anybody, but it’s more common in white, middle-aged women.
This redness is caused by the blood vessels, but why this happens is not completely understood.
It may be due to an overactive immune system, genes or environmental factors - it’s not down to poor hygiene and it isn’t contagious.
You might find that certain things can trigger your rosacea, like hot drinks and spicy foods.
What is the best treatment for rosacea?
There are treatments for rosacea, but this is focused on managing the signs and symptoms, usually in the form of a good skincare routine, medication and avoiding triggers.
It will all depend on the severity of your rosacea, but recurrence is common.
What causes the skin to turn red?
Your skin turns red when blood vessels rush to the skin’s surface.
