Rosacea in Philadelphia, Bryn Mawr, and Newtown Square
Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes redness in the face and often produces small, red, pus-filled bumps. It can affect anyone, but most commonly occurs in fair skinned adults between ages 30 and 50. Often mistaken for acne or other skin problems, rosacea tends to worsen over time if left untreated.
Signs and symptoms of rosacea include:
- Frequent flushing or blushing on cheeks, nose, chin, and forehead.
- Persistent redness.
- Visible blood vessels.
- Dry skin.
- Burning, stinging, or itching skin.
- Pimple-like bumps without blackheads or whiteheads.
There is no cure for rosacea. There are treatments that can control and reduce the signs and symptoms of this potentially life-disrupting disorder. The licensed experts at Bryn Mawr Skin & Cancer Institute use the most effective and safest treatments for rosacea that are currently available.
