Why Rosy Cheeks And Little Pimples, Is This Rosacea Or Redness Usual?
so my cheeks are like reddish cheeks but there are a few pimples, but in the other red parts there are no pimples though. The redness is really great, and it doesn’t finish. Even though I’m not allergic to anything. Is this rosacea or ordinary redness? How do you distinguish? I read in the article that redness can be removed by using hydrocortisone 1% applied to the redness section, and taking doxycycline and. There is also salicylic acid but I am afraid my skin will become more irritated. Please help
Rosacea is a skin condition characterized by redness of the face, with skin deformities in the form of erythema (discoloration to red), telangiectasis (dilation of blood vessels), papulopustular (pus-filled nodules), and dry skin. Rosacea formation can resemble acne. Rosacea is commonly found in women in their 30s and above. The cause of rosacea is not yet known, but it is thought to be a combination of genetic factors, skin reaction to a substance, blood vessel abnormalities, exposure to UV light, consumption of certain foods, and the use of certain drugs.
The diagnosis of rosacea is through a physical examination by a doctor. There are no specific investigations for rosacea. Handling of rosacea involves administering drugs to reduce redness, antibiotics, isotretinoin, sunscreen, moisturizers and invasive measures such as laser or mechanical skin dermabrasion. The use of the drugs mentioned above (doxycycline, hydrocortisone, and salicylic acid) must be based on doctor's instructions because all of the above drugs can cause side effects of dry skin and irritation that can worsen the condition of your face. The use of these drugs requires monitoring by a doctor. Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
