Rosacea can cause the following symptoms:
Rosacea can affect your chin, nose, cheeks, and forehead. It might also irritate your ears, eyes, chest, neck, or scalp.
More than 15 million people in the United States suffer from rosacea. See the Dermatology Associates experts at the first sign of bothersome or embarrassing symptoms.
The common causes and risk factors for developing rosacea include:
While women are more likely to experience rosacea, men with the condition usually have more severe symptoms.
Your symptoms may get worse due to cold or hot temperatures, sun exposure, stress, or drinking alcohol. Other triggers might include spicy foods, certain hair or skin care products, and hormonal changes.
Diagnosing rosacea involves a review of your medical history and symptoms. A dermatologist also completes a physical exam to examine your skin and determine which skin condition you have and its severity. They also discuss your treatment preferences and tailor a plan that’s best suited to your needs.
Rosacea treatments vary from person to person and may include:
You might avoid spicy foods or other foods that trigger rosacea symptoms. Follow up with your dermatologist at Dermatology Associates to ensure your treatment is effective.
