rosacea q&a

What is rosacea?

As one of the most common skin conditions, rosacea leads to flare-ups that can last for weeks or even months at a time. If you have rosacea, you may develop facial redness and flushing for no clear reason. Rosacea is also known for causing:
  • Round, bulbous nose
  • Warm or tender skin
  • Dry, swollen, irritated eyes
  • Small pus-filled bumps that resemble pimples
While health care providers aren’t clear as to why rosacea occurs, they believe that a combination of genetics and environmental factors — including sun exposure — are likely to be responsible.In any case, no matter how minor or how severe your rosacea may be, you can get the dermatology care you need at kalon Dermatology.
