Rosacea, a persistent skin condition affecting millions globally, manifests as facial redness, flushing, and visible blood vessels, primarily on the cheeks, nose, chin, and forehead. It can also lead to papules, pustules, and thickened nose skin (rhinophyma). While prevalent in fair-skinned individuals and women over 30, it can impact anyone at any age.

drName, a dermatologist in Grand Rapids, provides comprehensive rosacea care. Our team identifies triggers, tailoring treatment plans without promising a cure. Although incurable, symptoms can be managed and flare-ups prevented with the right approach.

Treatment starts by steering clear of exacerbating factors, such as sun exposure, heat, spicy foods, alcohol, and stress. A gentle skincare routine includes a mild cleanser, fragrance-free moisturizer, and broad-spectrum sunscreen.

When lifestyle changes and skincare prove insufficient, prescription medications may be required:

1. Topical antibiotics: Metronidazole, azelaic acid, and ivermectin reduce inflammation and combat skin bacteria.
2. Topical retinoids: Tretinoin and adapalene improve skin texture and reduce redness by regulating cell turnover.
3. Oral antibiotics: Tetracycline, doxycycline, and minocycline, prescribed for severe cases, diminish inflammation and bacteria internally.
4. Laser therapy: Pulsed dye laser and intense pulsed light therapy targeting visible blood vessels and redness, enhancing skin texture and tone.

Managing rosacea demands proper care and treatment. Schedule an appointment with drName to regain control over symptoms and prevent the condition from dictating your life.
