Do I need to go to a special doctor to treat my cyclic rosacea?

Many people first get diagnosed with rosacea by their family doctor. After diagnosis, though, it is often recommended that people with rosacea see a dermatologist-a doctor who specializes in skin conditions. As specialists, dermatologists will have more knowledge of and experience with your condition. For people who are also experiencing eye trouble due to their rosacea, it may also be helpful to see an ophthalmologist, an eye specialist.

Rosacea is common and can often be treated by your primary care physician. Of course, dermatologists specialize in treating rosacea and we can help any rosacea-type, no matter how mild or severe.
