Rosacea is a common skin condition that affects millions of Americans every year. If you’re not familiar with Rosacea, you’re not alone. Rosacea is a skin disease that leads to redness and swelling of the skin, and is normally isolated to the face. Many adults have Rosacea and do not even know it. This disease is often mistaken for a bad sunburn or in some cases, acne.
Rosacea is most commonly characterized by red bumps that appear all over the face. Although Rosacea can be confused for acne, it does not take the appearance of whiteheads or other breakouts. You may also notice that this redness is focused primarily on your nose. Rosacea can also cause blood vessels to become visible on the face which is particularly troubling for many patients.
Rosacea typically starts on the nose and spreads to other areas of the face including the chin and forehead area. If left untreated, Rosacea can grow and become even more of distraction for affected patients.
If you believe that you may be suffering from Rosacea, only your physician can confirm the diagnosis. The Gold Skin Care Center and Dr. Michael Gold can confirm your condition and recommend the most appropriate course of treatment.
