How can rosacea treatment improve my quality of life?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD
Cardiology (Cardiovascular Disease)
Rosacea treatment can help improve your quality of life by reducing acne-like skin eruptions and easing the redness on your cheeks, nose, forehead, and chin. Daily skin washing and avoiding rosacea triggers are important. Medication, topical therapies, and even surgery are options for treating rosacea. The best time to start rosacea treatment is when you first have symptoms. Over time, the red skin can become rougher and redder, and treatment may not be as effective. Once your natural appearance is restored with rosacea treatment, your quality of life can improve as you do the things you enjoy, including exercise and social activities, without being self-conscious.
