3 Ways to Treat Rosacea
Blushing in front of a crush or while you’re speaking in front of a large group of people is completely normal. If, however, you blush easily and it lasts a bit longer, then you may be suffering from a skin condition called rosacea. Affecting over 14 million Americans, rosacea is a common skin condition that causes redness and sometimes small, pus-filled bumps (similar to acne) across the face, arms, and legs. Although there is no cure yet for rosacea, Dr. Tracy Evans has a variety of treatment options for patients to choose from. Read on to learn more.
To help soothe your skin when you have rosacea, we encourage our patients to apply a thick, unscented moisturizing cream like Cetaphil or Cera Ve. By keeping the skin moisturized and hydrated, you can prevent it from drying out and your rosacea from getting worse.
Depending on the severity of your rosacea, Dr. Tracy Evans may recommend either a topical prescription medication or an oral one. Remember when using a prescription medication to use it consistently— otherwise, it won’t be efficient and your rosacea will not improve.
One of the most popular methods of treating rosacea is a laser treatment. By targeting each skin cell, laser therapy works to reduce redness caused by rosacea. Depending on your rosacea and the location, you and Dr. Tracy Evans will discuss how many sessions you will need to get rid of it.
Although rosacea isn’t necessarily painful or uncomfortable, it can make you feel extremely self-conscious. Luckily, by using one or a combination of the treatments listed above, Dr. Tracy Evans can help you get back your skin.
