About rosacea

Common causes

Several lifestyle factors can cause rosacea, including extreme temperatures, sun exposure, stress, and hot or spicy food and beverages. These factors can vary from one person to the next.

Impact on daily life

People with rosacea may experience depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, poor self-image, lower quality of life, and feelings of loneliness.

    Topical treatments

    Topical treatments can be creams, lotions or soaps applied directly to the area affected by rosacea.

    In most cases, a thin layer applied every night is recommended.

  2. Oral antibiotics

    Many oral antibiotics can help reduce or even eliminate rosacea.

    In the case of rosacea, the tablets are usually taken twice a day for 3 months.

    Depending on your condition, the frequency and duration may vary.

The dermatology team will suggest the most appropriate treatment for your type of rosacea.

Why treat rosacea?

Rosacea does not go away without treatment and may even worsen over time. There are several very effective treatments available on prescription. If you think you have rosacea, consult a dermatologist who can prescribe a variety of treatments for your situation.

There are multiple forms of rosacea

  1. Erythematotelangiectatic

    The main symptoms are redness on the face that can appear and disappear. There may also be swelling, burning and stinging; the skin may be rough and small veins may become visible on the skin surface.

  2. Papulopustular

    This is a form of rosacea that is characterised by persistent redness and bumps that look like acne pimples (and are often mistaken for acne).

  3. Phymatous

    In some people, rosacea can affect the sebaceous glands and connective tissue, causing the skin to thicken and become bumpy. Phymatous rosacea most often affects the nose (rhinophyma) and rarely the forehead and chin.

  4. Ocular Rosacea

    In addition to skin symptoms, rosacea can also affect the eyes and eyelids. It can cause redness of the skin around the eye and also burning, stinging, dryness, sensitivity to light, blurred vision and watery, bloodshot eyes.
