The cause of Rosacea is not yet known. Rosacea is a chronic inflammation that causes redness in the facial skin, especially in the centre of the face. The condition often debuts with sudden redness, episodes that can last about five minutes. Eventually, the skin on the forehead and over the nose and cheeks may become more persistently red and possibly somewhat swollen. Without treatment, the inflammation can sting a lot and sometimes lead to irritation of the eyelids and around the eyes.

The dermatologists at Dr.Dropin can help with medical advice, treatment plans, prescriptions and further referrals if needed, either in the clinic or via video.

Treatment of Rosacea

Sometimes rosacea can lead to obvious blood vessels on the surface of the skin that you want to remove. If the redness or pimples really bother you, you can ask your doctor for advice. There is also a subtype of rosacea called rhinophyma which, by thickening the sebaceous glands and skin, can cause the nose to become large and lumpy. This can also be treated.

Topical treatment with ointment can reduce the swelling, but it may take a few weeks. Ask the doctor which treatments are best. You must not treat yourself with cortisone cream to reduce the swelling. Cortisone can actually make rosacea worse.

What you can do for yourself is to avoid the sun, be careful when washing your face by avoiding soap and use moisturizer, preferably without perfume. You should also be aware that rosacea is sensitive to heat and cold, hot drinks, strong food, exercise, alcohol and stress.

In addition to the aforementioned treatments, Dr.Dropin now also offers a gentle and effective laser treatment, which both reduces redness and visible blood vessels that have arisen in connection with rosacea.
