Rosacea: The Truth and Treatments That Help
Treating a common but manageable skin condition – The Balancing Act offers solutions. Imagine having a chronic, inflammatory facial skin condition that can negatively impact the way you feel about yourself, and the way others perceive you. It’s called rosacea, and it affects 1 in 20 Americans – are you one of them? With symptoms including persistent facial redness, bumps and pimples, rosacea is often mistaken for acne, and a number of common factors can trigger it, such as spicy foods, alcohol and emotional stress — just to name a few. Recent studies have further shown that generally harmless microscopic Demodex mites may also be a culprit, which may appear in greater numbers on the faces of people with rosacea. Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Dimitry Palceski joins the Balancing Act on Lifetime Television to discuss this complex, challenging condition. Chronic – yes. But it can be managed — with a healthy skincare regimen, trigger management and prescription medication that treat the various symptoms.
