Rosacea Treatment

If you have rosacea, there are many ways to keep the condition under control. Though rosacea can't be cured, treatment can help you control symptoms and prevent them from getting worse. Some things you can do on your own, like avoiding triggers. Other approaches include creams, medication, or surgery.

Avoiding Rosacea Triggers
To keep rosacea under control, you need to do your part. Learn what your own personal triggers are. Use a symptom diary to keep track. When you find a pattern to your rosacea flare-ups, make adjustments to your habits and lifestyle to prevent problems.

Rosacea Medications and Topical Treatments
Your treatment will vary depending on the type of rosacea you have. Most of the ointments and oral medications below are most effective in people with papulopustular rosacea (where symptoms may include small pimples, facial flushing, and tiny red lines on the cheeks).

These treatments may still be used in people with other types of rosacea as well, but often with less success. And even if the approach works and your symptoms go away, you might stay on the treatment to stop further flare-ups.

Antibiotics are a common rosacea treatment, but that's not necessarily because bacteria causes rosacea. Instead, antibiotics may resolve rosacea symptoms by reducing swelling and relieving the inflammatory lesions seen in rosacea.

CDSS can tailor combination of treatments to each patient that include: gels and creams, oral antibiotics, cortisone creams, and in some cases laser treatments. Together, these treatments can stop the progress of Rosacea and sometimes reverse it.
