Here are some rosacea warning signs:
- Passing or permanent redness on the cheeks, nose and beyond.
- Small visible blood vessels on the surface of the face.
- Bumps or pimples on the face.
- Watery or irritated eyes and swollen eyelids.
Although the exact cause is unknown, rosacea tends to run in families and can be set off by triggers ranging from the sun and stress to wine and spicy foods. Many of the 16 million Americans living with rosacea are between 30 and 50 years old and have fair skin, blonde hair and blue eyes.
