Patients of the Walnut Creek, California area struggling with redness and bumps on the face may not actually be dealing with acne. Instead, they may be diagnosed with a condition called rosacea which can impact one’s appearance—and self-confidence—due to regular flareups that can last weeks or months.
Dr. Moazemi describes rosacea as a chronic skin condition. It can flareup and cause problems for extended periods of time. With proper management, many patients can keep this condition under control. The earliest stages and symptoms of rosacea often including blushing or flushing of the face, long-lasting redness, and the appearance of blood vessels and bump on the skin. Rosacea can also impact the eyes, resulting in redness, watering, and irritation. Patients who experience rosacea flareups may experience either mild symptoms or severe problems.
How to care for skin with rosacea
In most situations, the biggest step is prevention. Rosacea often occurs in waves known as flare-ups that are often triggered by sun exposure or changes in stress levels. When flareups begin, it is important to treat them as soon as possible to lessen their severity and shorten flareup’s longevity. When patients use their prescribed medications regularly and follow a gentle skin care routine that keeps the skin healthy and moisturized, many patients can reduce the number of flareups they experience each year. By managing rosacea in this manner, many find that they can spend more time with healthy skin and less time dealing with flareups!
