People with rosacea can also get bumps on the reddened parts of their face, or an uncomfortable burning and soreness in the eyes. One of the major problems caused by rosacea is the lack of confidence that this brings to people who suffer from this condition. There are several treatment options available which can help your skin look and feel better. And these treatments may keep your condition from getting worse.

However, drinking alcohol can sometimes make the condition worsen.

When someone comes to our office for Forest Hills rosacea treatment, Charles Kleinberg, MD will generally not need to perform any diagnostic tests. The pattern of redness presents a complete diagnosis in of itself, as the pattern is so completely characteristic of rosacea. Common rosacea triggers that can cause flare ups are: exercise; exposure to sun and wind; hot weather; spicy foods; and hot baths. Most cases of rosacea do not need treatment; as they will not cause a permanent change to the skin. However, this can happen in rare cases. To reduce the signs of rosacea, a combination of prescription medicines and lifestyle changes are needed. Medicines prescribed can include antibiotics or acne drugs. Long-term treatment with these medicines is usually necessary to prevent a return of this condition. In severe cases, laser or electrosurgery surgery can generally reduce visibility of blood vessels and remove tissue buildup.
