We offer rosacea treatments based on consultations with you to find the best option. If rosacea is not treated, you can develop solid red bumps and pus-filled pimples.
The disorder can also cause the nose to take on a bulbous, swollen appearance which is called rhinophyma. It can also affect the eyes, causing them to feel irritated and to appear bloodshot or watery.
Men and women can suffer from rosacea and often have fair skin tones, with complexions that are prone to blushing. Although the causes of this relapsing condition are still unknown, there are consistent signs to look out for.
Symptoms of Rosacea
The most common symptom of rosacea is redness. Flushing is most likely to affect the face, particularly the nose, cheeks, forehead and chin. ln severe cases, reddening will spread outwards from the nose to each cheek, presenting as what is known as the ‘butterfly pattern’.
It can also cause the eyelids to become sore and crusty. Rosacea flushing is usually accompanied by a flare−up of condition−specific spots: small, sore pimples which appear on the affected areas.
