Rosacea

When there is a little bit of redness across your nose and cheeks — maybe not always, but more often than not — how do you know whether it is a normal, healthy bit of colour or whether it’s actually something of a problem? It can be hard to tell, given that we have all grown up thinking that ‘getting a bit of colour in our cheeks’ is a good thing.

And skin just does go red when it’s provoked. Exercise, sunshine, and heat will all do the trick, as will stress and embarrassment. That sort of redness is normal. But if a flushed colour persists, or you get ruddy patches that flare up occasionally, or you get flare-ups accompanied by a rash of spots, here’s the news: you might have rosacea.
