Rosacea is a skin disease that makes the face look red and sometimes shows visible blood vessels and small bumps. Rosacea tends to flare up due to triggers for a few weeks or months and then subsides for a while. Mild cases may be mistaken for an allergic reaction, acne, or another type of rash. There are multiple treatment options for rosacea treatment in Markham.

The main symptoms of rosacea are:

  • Redness in the central area of the face and small blood vessels on the cheeks and nose and sometimes swelling in these areas
  • Pimples that resemble acne and sometimes contain pus; they make the skin feel tender and hot
  • About half of the people with rosacea have eye irritation, dryness, and swelling of the eyelids; these symptoms may appear before the redness and could involve corneal complications and loss of visual acuity
  • Thick skin on the nose, making it look larger; this is rare and happens more often in men than women

There is no test for rosacea, but our specialist can do a visual examination when you come for a consultation in Markham. If any test is recommended, it may be to rule out other skin conditions. Treatments tend to focus on controlling the symptoms.

You may be able to reduce rosacea outbreaks by avoiding the things that trigger them. These factors may be different for different individuals, but some of the most common are:

  • Sun exposure in the number one trigger for most people
  • Emotional anxiety and stress
  • Hot weather and indoor heat
  • Cold weather and wind
  • Heavy exercise
  • Alcohol consumption
  • Hot tubs, saunas, and hot baths
  • Spicy food
