Rosacea, a common skin disease of adults, may begin as a tendency to flush or blush easily and may progress to persistent redness of the face. It can affect the nose, cheeks, forehead, chin, neck, upper chest and back. Other symptoms of rosacea may include acne, a burning or stinging sensation, thick bumpy skin and dry sensitive skin or eyes. Factors that aggravate rosacea include sunlight, hot or spicy food, alcohol and harsh or fragranced soaps and lotions. Although this condition may persist throughout adult life, it can be improved by treatment.
Rosacea is easier to treat when symptoms are mild. If you have rosacea, see a dermatologist for prescribed treatment to control your rosacea and prevent it from getting worse. Our office carries skin care products appropriate for patients with rosacea. In addition, we offer laser treatments to remove facial veins and improve your appearance.
