Answering your queries related to rosacea symptoms, causes, and treatments
Rosacea is a serious skin concern for many but, thankfully, has several treatments. We are going to go into the details of a few such treatments here.
Redness, blemishes, and bumps on the skin and neck when you are exposed to sunlight can be a sign of rosacea. The condition gets aggravated by many factors like spicy food, alcohol, and even fragrant skincare products. It can be a painful condition but with the proper treatments, it can be remedied.
Symptoms and causes of rosacea
It is aggravated by numerous things in the environment. Spicy food, emotional stress, sunlight, alcohol consumption, and caffeine are some of the major aggravators.
