Rosacea is a relatively common medical condition marked by reddish skin that is most noticeable across the cheeks. In some cases, rosacea may also cause small, red bumps filled with pus that resemble acne. The condition comes in “flares” that may last anywhere from a couple of weeks to a few months before disappearing completely or fading significantly for a while. Many people who have rosacea mistake it for acne, as well. Though the cause of rosacea is unknown, dermatologists are aware of several potential triggers that may lead to flares. These include things like hot or spicy food, alcoholic beverages, exposure to sun and/or wind, certain medications, cosmetics, and even exercise, among others.
