Redness or Rosacea?

Rosacea is a skin inflammatory disease that affects millions of Americans. In reality there may be more affected than even are aware, as many people mistake their Rosacea symptoms for adult acne or sunburn.

While not life-threatening, Rosacea can disturb daily activities and social activities as the disease occurs frequently and most commonly affects the face. Certain environmental factors have been known to trigger Rosacea, including:

  • Stressful situations and busy home or work schedules.

  • Excessive sun exposure, making Rosacea easily confused for sunburn.

  • Eating spicy foots and drinking hot beverages.

  • Exercise and over exertion.

Only your dermatologist can properly diagnose and treat Rosacea, however there are many telltale symptoms, which could indicate you have Rosacea.

  • Do you have persistent redness of the face? Or severe redness of your nose?

  • Is the redness getting worse over time or spreading to new parts of your face?

  • Is your facial redness bumpy in texture?

  • Have blood vessels become visible on some parts of you face?

There is no cure for Rosacea but Dr. Hruza can create a course of treatment tailored to your specific health needs in order to reduce the appearance of your Rosacea.

If you have questions concerning Rosacea, call our office and schedule an appointment to meet with Dr. Hruza.
