What is Rosacea?

Think only teenagers get acne? Think again! Rosacea is a disorder that often shows up in the middle of life and affects both men and women. Rosacea can cause a number of unwanted changes to the skin. Redness, swelling, flushing, acne-like pimples, and overgrown oil glands are all different manifestations of this cosmetically bothersome affliction.


What causes Rosacea?

One particular nuisance with rosacea is that it is often flared by many of the things most of us enjoy: caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, sunshine, and spicy foods.


How is Rosacea treated?

Due to the wide variety of signs and symptoms of treatments, it is important to see a dermatologist to create a regiment specific to your needs. Schedule your consultation with Charleston Dermatology today.
