Facts about rosacea



Rosacea can often be misdiagnosed as acne, because in some cases pustules (pimples) and papules (red, raised bumps) are present. The first step is to get an accurate assessment from your doctor or dermatologist. The features of rosacea include a distinct area of redness, which often appears in a butterfly pattern over the nose and cheeks. This blushing or flushing can start out to be intermittent, but eventually, this skin condition almost always increases in severity and sensitivity.

Other symptoms can also include any combination of rashes, enlarged pores, blemishes, and small linear blood vessels (telangiectasia) that appear on the surface of your skin. Some of these associated symptoms can be corrected through a combination of laser and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapies. These treatments can be effective at reducing the redness and visibility of broken blood vessels on your face. Talk to your doctor about the options that are most appropriate for you. For daily management, look for tinted moisturizers and foundations that will help to even out your skin tone and conceal the imperfections.
