Rosacea clinical update

rosaceaThis clinical update concerned me when I read it because I’ve only heard about rosacea happening on the face.  According to The Nursing Center Skin Care Network, the eyes can also be affected.  Rosacea is a common skin condition of the face that causes frequent redness especially on the cheeks. Other symptoms include small red lines under the skin, acne, and thickening of the skin on the face and nose.  Eye symptoms include drynesss, tearing, itching, redness, burning, and eyelid swelling.  These seem very similar to seasonal allergies.   Other signs of rosacea that are a cause for concern are photosensitivity and impaired vision.  If your skin is frequently flushed for a prolonged period, you may have rosacea.  Get a skin analysis with Carol O’Neil  so she can get you on the right products to calm your skin.  There are also medications the dermatologist can recommend.
