Rosacea affects an estimated 14 million Americans — most people don’t even know they have it. Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that makes your face turn red and may cause swelling and skin sores that look like acne. Although there is no cure, there are a number of treatments used by the Bradford Skin Clinic and Medical Spa to minimize the unsightly bumps that can appear on your nose, cheeks, chin, and forehead.
Many times rosacea is confused with “adult acne” because it can come and go. It is most common in people over 30 and women, but men who suffer from rosacea seem to have stronger symptoms. There are also numerous foods, temperatures, activities, and emotional states that can trigger your rosacea to flare up.
