What is Rosacea?

Rosacea is a skin disorder that causes redness of the skin of the face in people of Celtic origin. The cause of Rosacea is not known but it usually affects people with fair skin in their 30's or 40's.  Research has found that the skin of people with Rosacea contains approximately 4 times as many tiny skin mites, called demodex folliculorum, than people without Rosacea. These mites live in the oil canals of the face and as it has also been shown that the oil in the skin of rosacea patients is different from non-rosacea patients this may be the cause of the multiplication of these mites.
