Rosacea, which causes redness in the face, is also known as adult acne. It can start insidiously as flushing or blushing. The redness of the face then becomes persistent and broken blood vessels can be seen on the surface of the skin. Red bumps and pustules are often a part of rosacea. Some people who suffer from it complain of sensitive skin and dry, itchy, red eyes. If left untreated, the red-faced, acne-like condition can potentially be a life-disruptive disorder, causing serious psychological, professional and social problems. The negative impact on self-esteem can be significant. At High Desert Dermatology, our professionals can tailor a skin care regimen to help with all of the symptoms and signs of rosacea.
