[ Rosacea ]

Rosacea is a chronic infection of the skin in the face which a.o. can lead to redness, pimples and irritation in the facial area. The disease affects 3-5% of people and typically occurs in adulthood between 30-50 years.

People with Rosacea often have a disturbed balance in the skin microbiome allowing pathogens (harmful bacteria) to colonize the skin. This means that pathogens starts to take up more space and nutrition on the skin and in that way outcompete the otherwise beneficial bacteria in the skin microbiome.
