If your skin is unusually red and bumpy, but it doesn’t look quite like acne, you are probably suffering from the effects of rosacea. This frustrating and embarrassing condition does not have to be accepted as a permanent part of your life. The following treatments offer ways to address the underlying causes of rosacea so that you can embrace clear skin once again.
Do You Have Rosacea?
Rosacea is a skin condition that causes severe redness and small, red, pus-filled bumps to appear on the face. Most people experience rosacea in flare ups that last for a period of weeks or months before temporarily diminishing. These symptoms indicate the presence of rosacea:
- Facial redness in the central portion of your face, including your nose and cheeks.
- Red, swollen bumps like pimples that cause your condition to resemble acne.
- Eye dryness, irritation, and swollen eyelids.
- Though rare, rosacea can also thicken skin on the nose and cause it to appear larger.
