    ACNE / PIMPLES

Rosacea is apersistent facial eruptions of unknown cause characterized by erythema andpustules. Sebum secretion is normal in this condition.

Rosacea becomes progressively worse in many of those affected. The real causeof rosacea is now thought to be a tendency to flush and blush in a person withsun damage. Sun damages the supporting fibers of the small blood vessels justunder the surface of the skin, allowing the vessels to stretch out (becomepermanently dilated). The damaged blood vessels leak fluid when flushingoccurs, resulting in blotchy red areas. Swelling occurs, but is not usually soprominent to be very visible. The first sign most people see are small redpimples and pustules (pus-filled whiteheads). The redness can come and go andmay be tender, inflamed and sensitive to the touch. Later, the skin tissue canswell and thicken. Eventually the redness and swelling can become permanent.
