What is rosacea and how can it be treated?

Rosacea can be a chronic skin condition. It most commonly affects people of middle age, men and women equally.

And rosacea has two components to it: you get the what we call the papulopustular or the red spots on the skin. And, one can also get the redness and the flushing of the skin. And it is really, really important that we treat both of those aspects separately.

We can use various topical treatments that you apply locally onto the skin and obviously if there are quite a lot of red spots on the skin, one can treat those with a systemic agent such as an oral antibiotic.

We can also use various treatments in order to help the redness of the skin and very, very good skin care on a daily basis to keep redness to a minimum is really, really important. We can offer all of these treatment options for your rosacea here at Clinica.
