Rosacea is more than blushing! It is a skin condition that causes prolonged redness and visible blood vessels on the cheeks, nose, forehead and it can even spread to the neck and chest. It is most common in fair-skinned women over the age of 30, however, it can affect anyone at anytime. The most common symptoms are:
- Facial Redness
- Swollen red bumps
- Eye problems including red and swollen eyelids
- Thickening of the skin on the nose
The root cause of Rosacea is not known. Environmental concerns can contribute to the condition and it does seem to be hereditary. There are several options for treatment of Rosacea:
- Laser Resurfacing
- Topical Medications and creams
- Oral Antibiotics
- Prescription Strength Acne Medications in severe cases
- Light Therapy
