What Is Rosacea?

Rosacea is a common and chronic skin condition that appears on the face as areas of redness and small, pus-filled bumps that are similar to acne. Not only can it appear unpleasant, but it can affect a person’s confidence and self-esteem as well. Over 14 million Americans have this troublesome condition with many of them being unaware of it. While there’s no cure for rosacea, there are several treatments that are available to help control the symptoms and relieve flare ups.

What Causes Rosacea Flare Ups?

Each patient will have his or her own triggers that can lead to flare ups that will exacerbate rosacea. While these will differ from patient to patient, some of the most common rosacea triggers include the following:

  • Stress
  • Exercise
  • Sunlight
  • Heat
  • Cold
  • Wind
  • Spicy Foods
  • Alcohol
  • Certain Makeup
  • Some Medicines

How to Treat Rosacea

Just like how each patient will have differing triggers for flare ups, each one will also have his or her own most effective style of rosacea treatment. In most cases, it’ll consist of a combination of prescription treatment and making lifestyle changes that will avoid the triggers for flare ups. While rosacea treatment may be long term, you’ll likely see an improvement to your symptoms within one or two months. If permanent skin damage has occurred due to rosacea, advanced treatments, such as dermabrasion, cryosurgery, or laser surgery may be needed to improve the appearance of your skin.
