Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that affects the middle third of the face with persistent redness across the areas of the face and nose that normally blush, including the forehead, chin, and lower half of the nose. Tiny blood vessels in these areas enlarge and become more visible from beneath the skin, appearing like tiny red lines (or telangiectasias).
Rosacea is usually a chronic condition, and at-home diagnosis and treatment is not recommended as some over-the-counter treatments can worsen this disorder.
Following a full evaluation, your Great Lakes Dermatology provider will suggest the proper treatment, which could include topical treatments, oral antibiotics, or possible laser usage.
