The surface of the rosacea skin has a tendency to be dry or dry with a T-zone oiliness. There is often a rough or papery texture to the rosacea skin. There may be small red bumps beneath the surface of the skin, giving the skin a slightly lumpy appearance.
Rosacea skin is pinkish to bright red in appearance. This is known as rosacea flushing or facial redness. The rosacea flushing begins in early rosacea as a transient occurrence but as the condition progresses, the flushing goes from a short-term aspect of rosacea to a condition in which the redness becomes deeper in color and longer lasting to permanent in duration.
Rosacea skin becomes inflamed and will take on a swollen appearance. Again in the early stages of rosacea, this will come and go. As time goes on, if left untreated the inflammation and swelling become more pronounced and longer lasting in duration.
Rosacea, left untreated, is a progressive condition. For this reason, the sooner you identify the problem and take steps to address the symptoms of rosacea, the easier it is to treat and reverse the damage to the skin surface. One way to do this is through the treatment regimen outlined on the Rosacea-Ltd application page.
