How do you get rid of papulopustular rosacea?
What is rosacea?
Rosacea is a chronic red skin condition due to enlarged blood vessels. It gets worse over time from flushing. The condition can be more complicated when you have small pustules filled with bacteria in the area of the enlarged blood vessels—usually over the cheeks on the face. It can be caused by stress, high blood pressure, chronic flushing, anxiety, heat, food allergies, spicy foods and alcoholism. There are different kinds of the condition, one of which is called papulopstular rosacea.
What is papulopstular rosacea?
Papulopustular rosacea is when you have pustules causes by tiny whitehead areas over red cheeks. The redness is from constantly flushing. Your skin can be painful and swollen. The areas can be on cheeks and other areas such as your chin, forehead and sometimes might appear like you have acne—but it’s not acne. This kind of rosacea is a highly inflammatory rosacea and is usually more painful than other kinds as this isn’t stage one of having rosacea.
Depending on your skin tone and what type of skin you have (dry, in-between, oily) it can be worse. You might have other issues with rosacea that affect the skin feel and appearance. This condition is hard to completely understand. Studies have found that certain genetics could be a factor in developing the condition. Sometimes there can be environmental factors that contribute to the condition as well as anxiety, alcoholism and food related issues—these aren’t the triggers that affect everyone and cause it to start with.
