Rosacea is a common skin disorder that is often misdiagnosed as being acne, flushed skin, or a simple rash. The biggest problem with a misdiagnosis is that will not only be mistreating your condition, you will also be allowing it to get worse.

Rosacea symptoms include redness around the nose, cheeks and forehead. Small blood vessels can also appear in these areas which often resemble blushing, a tale-tale sign of rosacea.

Traditional Rosacea Remedies

As with eczema, rosacea does not have a cure. However, traditional remedies can be quite effective in treating it. Sometimes, rosacea can even go into remission for years or forever.

In order to help eliminate the capillaries that appear on the face, traditional remedies such as laser therapy are often used. Your doctor will also suggest that you avoid high temperature and humidity, which trigger rosacea flare-ups. And in some cases, he or she might may even prescribe rosacea products that can help reduce swelling, irritation, and redness.
