Rosacea & Facial Capillaries

 

Rosacea is a facial skin condition that affects adults, usually women. Symptoms of rosacea wax and wane and they are often seen in those who flush in response to alcohol, spicy food, heat or stress.

 

The cheeks, nose, forehead and chin are the usual affected areas. On top of redness, one can usually see small red blood vessels (telangiectasia), and small and large inflamed bumps (papules and pustules). Marked redness and swelling of the nose known as rhinophyma is a complication that occurs more often in men.

 

Other common facial vascular lesions include Spider Angioma and Cherry Angioma. Spider angioma is a form of telangiectasia and the lesion typically has a red dot in the center with reddish extensions. Cherry angioma is a benign growth that appears as a small, smooth, cherry-red bump. Although painless and harmless, cherry angiomas may bleed profusely if injured.

 

Traditional treatments of Rosacea include:

  • Lifestyle modification such as sun protection, avoidance of alcohol and spicy food, avoidance of hot water for face washes and showers, stress reduction, and lowering temperature at home and office
  • Topical treatment such as Metronidazole gel, cream or lotion and Alzelaic Acid
  • Oral antibiotics such as Tetracycline, Doxycycline and Minocycline
