 Good News for Rosacea Victims

Researchers now think they have found out the cause behind rosacea, the chronic skin condition which causes facial flushing, leaving many victims embarrassed.

Researchers from the National University of Ireland have now found proof that this redness could be due to the presence of bacteria living inside tiny mites that begin to stay on our faces.

Called as Demodex, this species is shaped like a worm and resides on our skin. They consume the facial oil known as sebum and are particularly attracted to hair follicles as well as the oily pores found on the nose, forehead and cheeks.

Some pharmaceutical companies have begun working on newer and better treatments to combat rosacea based on this study.
