Rosacea is a little heard of skin disorder, although the condition is not that well known it is estimated to affect up to 14% of the worlds population. One London based clinic has a very good track record when it comes to treating and controlling rosacea.
London, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/07/2013 -- Rosacea is a skin condition commonly suffered on the face and neck but it can affect other parts of the body too, it is less common in men than women but when men do get the condition they tend to suffer worse symptoms.
Worried you might be a sufferer? Doctors are not sure what causes rosacea, it generally tends to affect people with fair complexions, symptoms are facial redness around the nose, chin, forehead and cheeks. In the early stages sufferers tend to suffer frequent bouts of facial blushing/flushing.
The condition can be a source of anxiety/stress and cause sufferers to become socially withdrawn, the anxiety that sufferers feel can become a vicious circle since stress will cause more flushing and every flushing event will cause more damage to the skin.
There is currently no cure but it is wise to seek medical advice if you believe you are a sufferer because the condition will get worse if not treated, one more advanced form of this condition is ocular rosacea, research has shown that up to 50% of rosacea suffers develop eye problems. Ocular rosacea can cause your eyes to become sensitive to light with blurred vision and other problems with your vision.
