Rosacea

Rosacea is characterized by flushing of the facial skin on mainly the cheeks and the forehead.  The redness usually lasts for several days or weeks and may even extend to the eyes.  Sometimes, after a few weeks, the Rosacea may go into remission on its own.  In other cases, Rosacea can be more akin to a chronic disease.  Unfortunately, knowledge is limited regarding the origins of Rosacea.  However, we do know that common triggers for flare-ups include:

  • Alchohol
  • Sun exposure
  • Foods, especially spicier food Top San Antonio Boerne Dermatologist Rosacea Treatment Rosacea
