Rosacea / Psoriasis Treatments
What is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes redness and visible blood vessels in your face. It may also produce small, red, pus-filled bumps which can appear across your nose, cheeks and forehead. These signs and symptoms may flare up for weeks to months and then go away for a while.
Therapy for the treatment of rosacea is not curative, and is best measured in terms of reduction in the amount of facial redness and inflammatory lesions, a decrease in the number, duration, and intensity of flares, and concomitant symptoms of itching, burning, and tenderness.
When it comes to rosacea triggers and causes Rosacea can be made worse by sunshine, stress, exercise, alcohol, spicy food and extremes of temperature. Its cause is unknown, but there are theories that bacteria in your gut, may be involved. Nothing has been proven yet, but we do know rosacea isn’t contagious.
