Bacterial & Fungal
Skin offers resistance to infection by bacteria and fungi, but sometimes infections do occur. As with all things in dermatology, the key to overcoming the infections that do occur is customized treatment based on accurate diagnosis.
Rosacea is an extremely common skin disorder causing facial redness and swelling. If you’re a fair-skinned woman, you are more likely to develop the disease. It can be referred to as adult acne, and can often be exacerbated by a flush or a blush. Sometimes rosacea and real acne occur at the same time. It can come and go over the years, affecting the eyes and often presenting with a burning sensation.
Rosacea is an inflammatory disorder.
At CK Derm, we treat rosacea in a variety of ways, depending on your particular case and how it is affecting your life. Some are non-medical interventions, used to minimize what may be causing your facial flushing. Sometimes something as simple as minimizing or avoiding hot drinks, spicy food, alcohol, and caffeine can help as can avoiding extreme temperatures and sun exposure. Rosacea is an inflammatory disorder so you should also avoid physical and chemical irritants.
We often recommend a combination of treatments including topical prescription products, oral antibiotics, coated aspirin, and sunscreen. We can also remove enlarged vessels with specially designed lasers. Any treatment requires proper diagnosis. Diagnosing your rosacea by yourself is not recommended and over-the-counter skin products can actually make your condition worse.
