If you suffer from chronic redness in the center of your face and cheeks, you may have rosacea. You may look like you are always blushing, or like you have just come in from the cold. The redness could also be mistaken for sunburn. You may also have tiny bumps that look similar to acne, giving your skin a rough appearance. You may also experience sensitive, dry skin, and be prone to itching or burning, especially after using products on your face. If you have inflamed, sensitive skin, it is important to see a specialist for an accurate diagnosis.
Rosacea is more than ruddiness of the cheeks. Dr. Stong and the team at Kalos Plastic Surgery know it can have an adverse effect on your well-being. The redness and bumps can be difficult to hide, and there are many social stigmas that persist.
First, rosacea is not acne. Since your skin is already sensitive, treating it with acne products may make things worse. Second, poor hygiene does not cause rosacea. It is not known why some people get the condition and others don’t. Using harsh cleansers or scrubs can irritate your skin, causing your rosacea to flare up even more. Third, there are treatments available. You can find relief from your rosacea symptoms at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery.
