Often confused with acne (both rosacea and acne produce bumps and pimples although with rosacea, the blemishes are more painful and blackheads don’t exist), rosacea is a condition that causes the skin to become red and bumpy. Rosacea comes and goes,  certain factors instigate flare-ups. It tends to affect the cheeks, nose and forehead, but can also occur on the neck, chest, scalp and ears. If not treated properly, the skin can progressively worsen and even cause facial tissue to become extremely red, swollen and irritated and damaged. Currently there is no cure for rosacea, but this disorder can be managed with prescription-strength topicals, oral medications, some and/or light-based treatments. Patients often mistake rosacea for acne and use anti-acne products that not only irritate the skin but makes rosacea worse. It’s important to consult a doctor sooner rather than later.
