How to Treat Rosacea -- the Right Way
Follow this expert advice to learn how to get rid of rosacea redness once and for all
This skin problem isn't uncommon (about 14 million Americans suffer from rosacea according to the National Rosacea Society), but it does often require professional help and antibiotics. If you think you may have rosacea, it might be time to make an appointment with a dermatologist. They will be able to guide you to the best course of treatment for your skin.
That said, there are a few things you can do before seeing a dermatologist, in order to determine if your rosacea is severe enough to warrant a trip to the doctor's office. Though rosacea is likely an inherited skin problem (exact root causes are still unknown), there are many lifestyle triggers that cause rosacea to flare. Things like extreme temperature changes, stress and even some of the foods you eat and beverages you drink can be responsible for making your rosacea more of a problem.
Follow this guide we put together, with help from Dr. Heidi Waldorf, director of Laser and Cosmetic Dermatology at the Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City, to help diagnose your rosacea and solve this skin problem once and for all.
