Care Tips: Rosacea

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.
Rosacea or acne?
The signs differ in each individual, but managing the symptoms can be frustrating. Any combination of the following symptoms can be present: burning, stinging, itching, swelling and flushing (redness), especially in the creases from the nose to each side of the mouth.
Are small blood vessels visible on your face?
This condition is known as telangiectasias, which are small diameter, linear blood vessels that occur near the surface of the skin. As we age, these small dilated blood vessels commonly form on the cheeks, around the nose and chin. Heredity, sun-damage, aging and alcohol use are some of the contributing factors.
