Mayo Clinic Medical Edge: Don't confuse rosacea with other skin disorders
By Dawn Davis, M.D.
An estimated 14 million Americans have rosacea, which can be mistaken
for other skin disorders, such as acne and skin allergies. The good
news is that the pimple-like bumps of rosacea generally respond well
to prescribed treatment and to efforts to avoid triggers that can
aggravate the condition.
Although anyone can develop rosacea, it's more likely to occur in
people with fair skin and light eye and hair color. The condition
typically appears between ages 30 and 60. Women are more likely than
men to develop rosacea. However, it tends to be more severe in men.
Its cause is unknown, but researchers believe rosacea is likely due to
a combination of hereditary and environmental factors.
Rosacea can begin with a tendency for facial flushing. But when that's
the only sign and nothing further develops on your face, it may not be
rosacea. Some people have a naturally ruddy complexion or chronic sun
damage, which may give the appearance of rosacea.

Generally, signs and symptoms of rosacea are progressive. Persistent
red areas may develop on the center area of your face -- especially
the nose -- due to expanding (dilating) blood vessels close to the
skin's surface. With time, small blood vessels on the nose and cheeks
may swell and become more visible. Skin tends to be overly sensitive
-- for some, oily skin and dandruff are part of the mix. The
inflammatory phase of rosacea is marked by the appearance of small red
bumps or pustules, which aren't the same as whiteheads or blackheads
associated with acne.
More than half of people with rosacea experience a burning or gritty
eye sensation called ocular rosacea. The inner skin of the eyelids may
become inflamed or appear scaly. A rare occurrence -- mainly in men --
may occur late in the course of rosacea where tissue builds up on or
around the nose, giving the nose a large, bulbous appearance
True rosacea rarely clears up on its own. If you have persistent
facial redness, see your doctor for diagnosis and proper treatment.
You may notice that some of the following factors may make your face
turn red (flush). If that's the case, avoid:
Hot foods or beverages
Stress, anger or embarrassment
Hot baths, saunas
Medications that dilate blood vessels, including some blood pressure medications
Other than avoiding potential flushing triggers, there aren't good
treatments to address the problem of flushing on its own. However, if
the flushing produces dilated vessels on your skin, laser surgery may
help reduce the visibility of those blood vessels.
Gentle skin care practices are important to avoid irritating sensitive
facial skin and to protect your skin from needless damage. Your doctor
can recommend specific skin care products best suited for your skin
There are effective treatments for the pimple-like bumps caused by
rosacea. Topical medications may help reduce these blemishes. Commonly
used prescription topicals include antibiotics such as metronidazole
(Metrocream, Metrogel, others), tretinoin (Retin-A, Renova, others),
benzoyl peroxide, azelaic acid (Azelex, Finacea) and sulfacetamide
Topicals may be used alone or in combination with oral antibiotics,
which also help reduce inflammation. Oral antibiotics tend to work
faster than topical ones. Once symptoms improve, you may be taken off
the oral antibiotics and use just topical medication to help keep
rosacea in remission.
Ocular rosacea is typically treated with oral antibiotics. If needed,
your doctor may prescribe steroid eyedrops. In the rare instances of
rhinophyma, treatments such as laser surgery can be used to remove
Treatment for rosacea varies depending on the severity of your
symptoms. Although there's no cure for rosacea, you can often suppress
symptoms and keep rosacea under control with medications and
self-care. -- Dawn Davis, M.D., Dermatology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester,
