Dermatology treatment of Rosacea
The inflammation that accompanies rosacea can be treated with preparations applied to the skin or taken by mouth; however, these will not help the redness or blushing that may be associated with rosacea. Topical applications of metronidazole or azelaic acid are helpful. In addition, an oral antibiotic and sunblock may be helpful.
An eye specialist should manage more severe types of eye involvement. There are eye specialists at Clinica London who are specialists in the eye complications of rosacea.
During your consultation at Clinica London a full history, including potential triggers, will be taken and a full clinical assessment of your skin is performed. A treatment plan based on the treatments above will be given. The treatment options will be based on the severity of the rosacea and you will be reviewed periodically to ensure improvement in your symptoms.
