Health Tip: Treating Rosacea

-- Rosacea is a common skin disease that causes a reddening of the skin, typically on the face.

The disease may have differing symptoms, including sensitive skin or a thickening of the skin, resulting in a bumpy texture.

The American Academy of Dermatology suggests:

  • Identify and avoid factors that trigger an outbreak. They could include exposure to spicy foods, cold temperatures or being overheated.
  • Protect your skin from the sun.
  • Use a skin-care treatment designed for people with rosacea.
