Clinical studies have suggested that rosacea may occur up to
three times more frequently in women than in men, its effect on men shouldn’t
be overlooked, especially in matters of the nose.
study of more than 2,000 patients, both men and women experienced rosacea
symptoms on their chin, cheeks and forehead. However, men were more than twice
as likely to experience an enlarged nose in a condition known as rhinophyma, also
classified as sub-type 3 of rosacea. Symptoms of this sub-type include excess
tissue, thickening of the skin and irregular surface nodules. In contrast,
women were more likely than men to experience symptoms on their chin and
red, inflamed nose can be unsightly, and men who suffer from this condition may
also have another issue to face: the assumption that they are heavy drinkers. Although drinking alcohol may aggravate
rosacea symptoms in some, even those who abstain from drinking may develop the
disorder. Fortunately today, rhinophyma can be corrected with procedures such
as laser surgery.
women, who can cover up their signs and symptoms with makeup, many men do not
consider cosmetics to be an option and have to face the world with their
rosacea symptoms on display. In addition, men face a unique skincare challenge
that women don’t have to consider shaving. Dulled razor blades can
aggravate sensitive skin, so it is recommended that men with rosacea switch to
an electric razor. Men should also test a new shaving cream or aftershave on a
small patch of skin to avoid any that cause irritation, and use a rosacea cream
such as Rosacure intensive because of its rehydrating properties and its
ability to reduce permanent red areas, flushing and blushing and thread veins,
making it an ideal product to use after shaving.
a survey of over 1,000 rosacea patients they found that 60 percent of all
sufferers and 88 percent of those who were reporting severe symptoms said that
having rosacea had negatively
affected their interactions with others in the workplace.
Male and female patients alike have reported feeling embarrassment,
depression, anxiety and isolation as a result of their condition. Fortunately,
more than 64 percent of all respondents reported that effective treatment of
their rosacea had improved their interactions with others in the workplace.
men and women may differ in their signs and symptoms of rosacea, more research
is needed to further understand the differences between the sexes, they do have
one thing in common, needing a proper skin-care
regimen such as Rosacure which is proven to prevent and
reduce permanent red areas, flushing and blushing and also thread veins.
