INFORMATION FOR WOMEN WHO HAVE ROSACEA DURING PREGNANCY OR BREASTFEEDING

 

What is rosacea during pregnancy?

Rosacea is a chronic skin disorder that shows up, particularly on the face, as erythematous (reddened) inflammation that looks somewhat like acne, but is related to blood vessels near the surface of the skin, in contrast with acne, where the inflammation involves hair follicles and sebaceous glands (glands that produce oil). The condition also can involve the eye, usually in people who already suffer the cutaneous aspect of the disease, although eye inflammation, redness, and itching can start ahead of the skin manifestations. Based on characteristics of the skin lesions and affected blood vessels and based on the presence or absence of ocular (eye) symptoms, rosacea is classified into four types: papulopustular, erythematotelangiectatic, phymatous, and ocular. It affects young women, and so it can occur during pregnancy.
