Rosacea can truly wreak havoc on your life. You get tired of battling with the obvious redness in your face that can’t be hidden, not to mention the bumps that make you look like you are having a major outbreak of acne. When it’s at its worse, Rosacea affects your skin, nose, eyes, and self-esteem. You can find relief from your Rosacea, and our medical team at Dermatology and Skin Cancer Center can help.
Come in for a Consultation
The first step in dealing with your diagnosis is to talk to a dermatologist. You can’t ignore Rosacea and hope that it goes away. Rosacea isn’t going away on its own. During your consultation, we’ll work with you to determine the most effective treatment options suited to your skin. While we don’t know the specific causes of Rosacea, factors that have an impact on rosacea have been identified. Rosacea could be triggered or made worse by:
- Exposure to sunlight
- Alcohol consumption
- Spicy Foods
- Overexertion or heavy exercise
Understanding the triggers of Rosacea can help you determine what can aggravate your condition. Stress management through relaxation techniques and massage could have a positive impact on your condition, helping you to avoid flare-ups. Making choices about what you eat and modifying your exercise regimen could also be beneficial.
Discuss Your Treatment Options
Talk to our medical team about when you experience flare-ups, and we’ll help you determine ways to keep them under control. Antibiotics and various acne medications are the most common remedies. In addition, you should be proactive and wear sunscreen on a daily basis to avoid aggravation of your condition from the sun.
We can also recommend gentle skincare products that are most beneficial for your skin when it comes to moisturizing and cleaning your face. You should always be on guard to protect your face. When there are harsh weather conditions, keep your face covered.
