Welcome to our Rosacea treatment service

Rosacea tends to affect the cheeks, forehead, chin, and nose and is characterised by persistent redness caused by dilated blood vessels, small bumps and pus-filled spots similar to acne. A red, enlarged nose can be present in severe disease, a condition referred to as rhinophyma. There is currently no cure available for Rosacea. However, treatments do exist which can provide relief from symptoms. A combination of medications and lifestyle alterations usually give the best chance of positive results. The doctor may prescribe camouflage creams that mask blemishes on the skin.

Signs and symptoms of Rosacea may include:

  • - Facial redness
  • - Redness in the central part of your face
  • - Swollen red bumps. 
  • - Eye problems
  • - Enlarged nose

Can Rosacea be cured?

While Rosacea cannot be cured, medical treatments are available that can control or eliminate its various signs and symptoms. For patients with bumps and pimples, doctors often prescribe oral and topical rosacea therapy, and topical therapy to reduce facial redness is now available.

Rosacea is a common but a not very well understood long-term skin condition that mainly affects the face.

It can be controlled to some element with long-term treatment, but sometimes the changes in physical appearance can have a significant psychological impact.

 

Symptoms of Rosacea

Symptoms often begin with episodes of flushing, where the skin turns red for a short period, but other symptoms can develop as the condition progresses, such as:

  • - burning and stinging sensations
  • - permanent redness
  • - spots (papules and pustules)
  • - small blood vessels in the skin becoming visible

 

Rosacea is a relapsing condition, which means there are periods when symptoms are particularly bad but less severe at others.
