Rosacea is a skin condition characterized by abnormal redness and pimples. In most cases, rosacea pimples resemble acne vulgaris. This is why many people confuse it with acne, and this leads to a delay in its diagnosis. However, in other cases it is easily distinguishable. No matter how your rosacea looks, it is always recommended to consult a dermatologist as only an experienced doctor can distinguish rosacea from other skin conditions through a physical examination only. Most of the time, rosacea is benign. However, if left untreated, it may become chronic, resulting in significant discomfort.
It is believed that there is no cure for rosacea and the condition has sporadic pattern. However, this is not at all true. Rosacea is a diagnosable and controllable condition. There are treatments available that can offer long lasting results. Furthermore, this is not contagious disease. It can affect anybody but people with light skin are more prone to rosacea bouts.
What if rosacea does not bother me?
Mild rosacea does not bother people as such and they live peacefully with it. If you also have mild rosacea and you don’t want to seek medical attention then it’s ok; no treatment is necessary in this case. However, it is always recommended to visit your dermatologist at least once and get the condition professionally assessed. Ask your dermatologist if your rosacea can become worse or not. If there is no apparent chance and your doctor is satisfied with your condition then you do not need any treatment. However, keep a check on your condition.
