What are the First Signs of Rosacea?
The first sign of rosacea is a red face brought about by frequent flushing.
The redness tends to concentrate on the nose and cheeks, however there are occasional early cases where the flushing appears only on the chin and forehead, and where the redness has spread to the chest.
The redness is caused by a swelling of the capillaries under the skin and can last anywhere from a few minutes to several hours depending on a variety of factors including individual sensitivity to environmental factors and skin care.
This early stage of rosacea should be a "red flag" for treatment.
