Rosacea is a chronic condition, happens usually after 40 years of age. It is more common in females.

The exact cause is not known but some say it is due to the location of a mite on the skin called Demodex mite. now this mite is usually found on the skin in everyone, however, in the people with rosacea, its number is ***** The inflammation causes redness and dilated blood veins.

Bear in mind, it is a treatable condition but not curable. you may have to carry on using this cream or other treatment for long.

treatment wise, rozaex gel is suitable to begin with.

however, there are other newer treatments available as well such as ivermectin and brimonidine gel. sometimes oral treatments like doxyxyline and Accutane are also used for shorter durations.These have to be chosen according to the patient's medical history, severity of the condition and suitability in individual cases.
