Do you feel embarrassed and it interferes with feeling good and comfortable? Unfortunately, this is quite common for many people, both in mild and severe form, and is affected by many factors: food consumed, stress, ultraviolet (UV) radiation, weather, wind, humidity, overheating and drastic changes in temperature, strenuous exercise, alcohol (especially red wine), hot drinks, spicy foods. The true cause of rosacea is still not fully known, but it is considered to be the result of a combination of different factors.
As we can see, there are many factors that a person can influence and prevent. Of course, for some people, their skin itself tends to be more predisposed to redness. In more severe cases, it is already diagnosed as a permanent disease and is called rosacea. However, its symptoms can also be combated quite successfully. In most cases, according to experienced professionals, proper skincare and limiting the harmful factors can reduce the effects of rosacea to a minimum. Most often people lack the patience for long-term treatment of the red cheek symptoms. At the very first success, people get relaxed, then they tend to forget about caution, sunbathe too much in the lovely spring sun and find themselves back where they were, having to start everything all over again. All that remains is a new attempt.
Red cheeks can not only be reddened, but they can also become inflamed, the vascular network can expand, and there can even occur a tingling and burning sensation or actual ulcerative pimples. In more severe cases, reddened and enlarged nose (especially in men) and redness of the eyes, tearing up or severe eye dryness may be observed.
The first step is to find out the cause of the red cheek effect. In up to 40% of cases, it is a genetically inherited disorder that worsens at certain stressors or irritants. This is often due to a change in the innate immune system that responds differently to microorganisms and environmental factors, resulting in persistent inflammation and changes in blood vessels.
The symptoms of red cheeks and red nose, sometimes also a red chin, are quite variable due to the effects of adverse factors. The more a person takes control of the situation and the more they focus on care and prevention, the better the success in reducing the symptoms of red cheeks and other red facial areas.
Without attention and skincare, the symptoms of red cheeks and red nose may worsen. Initially, there may be a permanent redness of the face (erythema), then separate pimples may appear later. Over time, the visible network of blood capillaries on the face may expand (telangiectasia), the skin becomes sensitive, sometimes sensations of burning, itching, and other discomfort occur, in case of exacerbations accompanied by inflammatory elements, and purulent acne (pustules) that periodically "appear". With time, facial erythema may become permanent, thickening of the skin is formed locally, the surface of the skin becomes rough, uneven.
If the red cheeks are not cared for properly, over time the redness can spread and "permanently" affect the nose, forehead, and chin, causing physical and emotional distress, or exacerbate even more, causing itching, pimples, and other more severe symptoms of rosacea.
If a prolonged illness is detected, a doctor should be consulted who prescribes medication (topical preparations containing metronidazole with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects, azelaic acid, or ivermectin-containing preparations with anti-inflammatory properties) and laser therapy.
Proper skin care can reduce the redness of the cheeks and inflammation, as well as delay the development of red cheeks, nose, and chin.
