What is the difference between a rosacea flare up and flushing?

Recommended Posts

A rosacea flareup usually is a pronounced, episode of subtype 1 or subtype 2 (Phenotypes have replaced subtypes).This doesn't mean you can't have subtype 3 or subtype 4, but these are not as common. Subtype 4 has been reported to be in 50% of the rosacea cases but this is not universally accepted (need more data on this). (Phenotypes have replaced subtypes)

Flushing (or blushing) is something that occurs in the general population. Frequent Flushing is a sign (or symptom) of rosacea and usually the distinguishing marker in a rosacea diagnosis. However, not all rosacea sufferers experience frequent flushing or flush (or blush) any more than the general population. But in most cases, frequent flushing is experienced by rosacea sufferers. For many the flush also is accompanied by burning or an episode similar to a hot flash that lingers for a long period. Flushing (or blushing) can exacerbate a rosacea flare up. That is why many use flushing avoidance as a treatment for rosacea. But one could have a flush (or blush) and the episode expires and no rosacea flare up occurs. Yes, this is possible. Just because you flush doesn't necessarily mean you will have a rosacea flareup. But the chances are, if you suffer from rosacea, flushing will exacerbate a rosacea flare up.
