Rosacea & Eczema
Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes frequent flushing and visible blood vessels. Rosacea sufferers may also experience red bumps that swell, itch and even peeling, which often cause the patients to mistakenly self-diagnose as having acne. Unlike acne, rosacea has no blackheads or whiteheads. Sun exposure, hot and spicy food, inappropriate products on your skin can easily aggravate rosacea.
Often occurs in children, eczema is characterized by dry, itchy, and scaly patches.
Treatment for rosacea and eczema will typically require a combination of appropriate skin care (always do a patch test before trying a new product), medications (to control the intense itch and inflammation) and lifestyle changes (avoid known triggers and hot showers).
