If your skin problems include rosacea, you've come to the right place -- follow this expert advice to zap it once and for all
Why rosacea must be treated:According to Waldorf, "untreated rosacea generally gets worse -- more pimples and more redness and dilated blood vessels." What's also important to know is that over-the-counter products marketed for the treatment of rosacea are "not that helpful for rosacea," Waldorf says. They "contain anti-inflammatory agents (like licorice or feverfew) but they are more adjunctive (extra) rather than primary care," she says. So it's likely that if you have persistent rosacea flare-ups you will need to see a dermatologist.
