Rosacea is a skin condition that mainly affects the face. You may see flushing, a different colour (depending on your skin tone), acne-like breakouts, or visible blood vessels. Some people develop irritated eyes or thickening skin, while some people experience dryness, burning or stinging sensation.

Rosacea develops on the face, usually across your nose and cheeks. While less common, some people see rosacea spread to their forehead, chin, ears, scalp, neck, upper chest, or back. It is estimated that 50% of people who have rosacea will have a flare-up that affects their eyes.

A dermatologist will examine you properly. Because signs of rosacea can come and go, your dermatologist will also ask you questions to properly diagnose you. There are some cases of rosacea that will require a skin biopsy.

If you have rosacea, your dermatologist will create a treatment plan tailored to your case of rosacea. When creating your treatment plan, your dermatologist will look for what triggers your rosacea flares from the information given by you. In your treatment plan, your dermatologist will advise you to avoid the triggers, a moisturizer will be included, a sunscreen and other medication as needed, this type of plan can help to control rosacea.

The earlier you start treatment, the easier rosacea is to manage.
