What is Rose Disease (Rosacea)?


Rosacea is a chronic skin disease characterized by redness and acne-like lesions on the face. Rosacea, also popularly known as rosacea, is especially common in middle-aged women with light-colored skin. Rosacea usually starts around the face and can spread to other areas such as the chest and back over time. Rosacea can also affect the eyes. It can cause symptoms such as burning, stinging and redness in the eyes. Rosacea, which is especially common in middle-aged and older people, can cause redness on the face and various parts of the body, as well as prominent blood vessels. While rosacea is usually seen in white-skinned individuals, it is more common in women than in men. If left untreated, rosacea can often worsen and occasionally flare up. Rosacea can be confused with acne, allergic eczema, lupus and other skin conditions.

What are the Symptoms of Rose Disease?

The symptoms of rosacea may differ in each individual. A person with rosacea may develop red spots on the face or body, similar to sunburn. These lesions can often be accompanied by a burning and stinging sensation. Rosacea usually causes a marked reddening of the face. Small blood vessels on the nose and cheeks often swell and become prominent when the disease is severe. Rosacea can also cause acne-like pimples to develop on the face. Some people with rosacea may experience eye problems such as dry, irritated, swollen eyes and red, swollen eyelids. Often in men, the skin on the nose can thicken due to rosacea, making the nose look puffy (rhinophyma).


The general symptoms of rosacea are as follows:


Skin dryness


Skin temperature and tenderness


Painful sensation or burning


Changes in skin color


Vascular prominence


Acne-like formations


Thickening of the skin


Facial swelling


Changing the shape of the nose due to enlargement of the sebaceous ducts


Rashes on the head, ears, chest and neck


Each patient may experience these symptoms in different ways.

What Causes Rose Disease?

Although the cause of rosacea is not known exactly, it is thought to be caused by the interaction of hereditary and environmental factors. In particular, abnormalities in blood vessels, the skin mite Demodex, Helicobacter pylori bacteria and genetic factors may play a role in the formation of rosacea. When these factors come together, the symptoms of rosacea may appear and the disease may progress.


Here are some factors that can trigger rosacea:


Hot drinks and spicy foods


Alcoholic beverages


Extremely hot weather, sunlight, wind or humidity


Anxiety, anger, shame or stress




Some blood pressure medications that dilate blood vessels



Some cosmetics and skin care products


How to Treat Rose Disease?


The treatment of rosacea is individual and individualized, taking into account the individual differences and severity of the symptoms. The duration of treatment varies depending on the type and frequency of symptoms. Laser treatments, surgical interventions and some medications can be used to treat this disease. Avoiding the harmful effects of the sun and paying attention to the foods consumed are very important for the treatment of rosacea. Creams and oral medications are usually used in treatment. People with rosacea should take care not to irritate their skin. Gels and creams containing metronidazole and azelaic can be effective in rosacea. The use of topical cortisone creams should be avoided in the treatment of rosacea, as this can worsen the course of the disease. Laser and light therapies can be used as an alternative to drug treatments and are effective in cases where capillaries are dense. Mesotherapy can help treat rosacea by moisturizing the skin and strengthening the vascular walls. This treatment usually results in significant improvements after a few treatments.
