How is Rosacea Diagnosed
Look alike Conditions
Facial Rosacea Help • Sometimes topical or oral antibiotics can be used. Skin bumps may get better quickly, but redness and flushing are less likely to improve. • Small red lines can be treated with electrosurgery and laser surgery. For some people, laser surgery improves the skin without much scarring or damage. • Patients with a swollen, bumpy nose can have extra skin tissue taken off to make it smaller.
Ocular Rosacea Help • Most eye problems are treated with oral antibiotics. • People who get infections of the eyelids must clean them a lot. After scrubbing with a gentle cleanser, apply a warm (but not hot) compress a few times a day. • If needed, the doctor may prescribe steroid eye drops
Can Rosacea be Cured
Dermatologists Recommend • Rosacea is a chronic skin condition involving inflammation of the cheeks, nose, chin, forehead, or eyelids. It can lead to redness, blushing, acne-like skin eruptions, a burning or stinging sensation of the face, as well as other symptoms. For rosacea-prone skin, Cetaphil® cleansers gently cleanse, moisturize and remove what your skin doesn’t need, without stripping away natural emollients and oils. • • • • • • • • • • • Cetaphil® Gentle Skin Cleanser Mild, non-irritating, hypoallergenic formula Rinses off easily Helps prepare skin for topical medications Neutral pH, non-comedogenic Cetaphil® Gentle Cleansing Bar Gentle, non-alkaline, non-soap bar Ideal for facial and full body cleansing Non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic • • • • • Cetaphil® Daily Facial Moisturizer with sunscreen SPF 50+ Clinically proven to nourish and hydrate skin while helping defend against sunburn Leaves skin feeling soft and smooth Fragrance-free, non-irritating and non-comedogenic For people with rosasea, it’s important to avoid sun exposure and to use sunscreen every day.

More about Glycolic • • • • • • • • • • Purpose Glycolic acid (both buffered and non-buffered) is used in over-the-counter skin care products and light chemical peels to rejuvenate the skin and, with continued use, gradually diminish fine lines, mild wrinkles and skin discoloration for healthier, younger-looking skin. pH Level The pH level indicates the level of acid in a substance. In skin care, the lower the pH of a chemical, the stronger the acid and its effect on skin. Natural glycolic acid has a pH of 1.0. A pH of .06 indicates the pH has been lowered for more strength. Buffered glycolic acid has a pH level that has been altered. Strength Non-buffered glycolic acid has a low pH level, meaning the acid causes more of a reaction with skin proteins that trigger the peeling off of surface skin cells and the regeneration of new skin cells to replace the old. Buffered glycolic acid has a pH level that has been modified, typically to weaken the acid. Uses Non-buffered glycolic acid is typical for dermatological cosmetic treatments, while buffered glycolic acid is often used in over-the-counter products and treatments since it is safer and more gentle on the skin. Considerations Percentage does not necessarily indicate strength. A product with "70% glycolic acid" could contain weaker, buffered glycolic acid while one with "30% glycolic acid" could contain stronger, nonbuffered acid.
