How can rosacea treatment make me less self-conscious?

Proper treatment for rosacea symptoms can reduce self-consciousness when this skin condition is controlled.

Rosacea causes acne-like lesions, red skin, tiny spider veins, and inflammation on the cheeks, forehead, chin, and nose. Sometimes rosacea extends to the neck, ear, shoulders, and upper back. If left untreated, the skin can become rough, dark red, and thick. Rosacea can cause the nose to become disfigured and enlarged.

But rosacea treatment can help. Many people with rosacea have reclaimed their active lives once they started rosacea treatment and got their symptom under control. Talk to your doctor if you have rosacea. There are effective treatments, including daily skin care, antibiotics, topical therapies, and laser surgery, that can help restore your skin's appearance and help you feel less self-conscious.
