Useful Tips for Rosacea
What is Rosacea?
Rosacea, sometimes incorrectly called adult acne, is a chronic inflammatory condition of the face – most often the central area.
Telltale signs of this malady include persistent redness, promonent blood vessels, and pimple-like pustules. Although the cause of this cindition is unknown and there is no cure for rosacea, the things that trigger a flare-up – such as alcohol consumption, unprotected sun exposure, and extremes of temperature – are relatively easy to avoid.
Antibiotics and topical solutions are often prescribed to control the condition, but this can be accomplished with the use of natural remedies and careful avoidance of triggers.
