Rosacea

ROSACEA

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that causes redness, swelling, and inflammation, primarily on the face. The exact cause of rosacea is not known, but it is thought to be a combination of genetic and environmental factors.

CAUSES

Some common triggers that can cause a flare-up of rosacea include:

  • Sun exposure
  • Stress
  • Spicy foods
  • Alcohol
  • Hot beverages
  • Certain medications

TREATMENT

Treatment for rosacea depends on the severity of the condition. Some common treatments include:

  • Topical creams and gels: Prescription creams and gels can help to reduce redness and inflammation associated with rosacea.
  • Oral antibiotics: Antibiotics can help to reduce inflammation and kill bacteria that contribute to rosacea.
  • Light therapy: Intense pulsed light therapy (IPL) can help to reduce redness and inflammation associated with rosacea.
  • Laser therapy: Laser therapy can help to reduce visible blood vessels associated with rosacea.
  • Lifestyle changes: Avoiding triggers that can cause a flare-up of rosacea, such as sun exposure and certain foods, can also help to manage symptoms.
