Rosacea

Rosacea is a common, long-term inflammatory skin condition that causes redness and bumps, most often on the nose, cheeks and forehead.

What is it?

Rosacea is a chronic skin disorder that typically results in inflamed skin or a rash. It predominantly affects adults middle-aged or older and individuals with light skin tone. Due to shared symptoms, some patients confuse rosacea with conditions like acne, an allergic outbreak or eczema. Rosacea manifests as tiny, red, pus-filled bumps on the face, particularly the cheeks, nose, forehead and occasionally the eyes. Symptoms may include facial swelling, dry, scaly skin, visible broken blood vessels, an enlarged nose and continuous skin redness.


Patients can experience rosacea flare-ups from external triggers like sun, wind, extreme temperatures, stress, exercise, hot beverages, spicy foods, alcohol or certain medications.


How is it treated?

While there isn't a complete cure for rosacea, our board-certified dermatology providers at Mountain State Dermatology can assist you in devising a management strategy to control your symptoms. Interventions like topical drugs, orally administered antibiotics, phototherapy and laser treatments can contribute to reducing your discomfort. Being aware of your rosacea triggers can aid in further lessening the frequency and intensity of your symptoms.


We treat many patients for rosacea and would be happy to assist you in one of our offices in Bridgeport, Clarksburg, Elkins, Hurricane, Morgantown, Parkersburg, South Charleston and Wheeling, West Virginia; in Waynesburg and Uniontown, Pennsylvania or in Marietta, Ohio.
