Treatment of Rosacea

Rosacea consists of pimples, flushing and dilated blood vessels occurring on the face. This disease can be progressive and most patients need to continue treatment for life. Dr. Rosen’s main concern is patients who have been treating their rosacea with topical steroids for long periods of time. This can actually cause some patients to worsen and can also have other adverse side effects. There are many other topical and oral medicines that can be used to treat rosacea and Dr. Rosen can help you get on the treatment that is right for you.
