Rosacea can be a challenging condition to diagnose. In its early stages, this dermatologic disease may look more like a mild sunburn or like acne. As it progresses, however, the characteristics of rosacea become more evident. Diffuse flushing and visible blood vessels may occur to an extent that causes emotional distress.

What is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a chronic dermatologic condition. This means that you need the help of an experienced physician to manage your skin’s health. In our Tampa dermatology practice, we perform a thorough analysis of symptoms and the skin to identify conditions like rosacea accurately.
We help patients identify potential triggers and implement skin care that will have a soothing effect on inflamed, irritated surfaces. In some cases, we will discuss treatments that can minimize the appearance of blood vessels or reverse damage that has occurred.
To obtain adequate treatment for rosacea, you must first learn to recognize the signs that your skin needs professional care. Some of the symptoms unique to rosacea include:
- Localized redness on areas like the chin, cheeks, nose, and forehead that is not associated with sun exposure
- Increasingly visible facial vessels
- Enlarged nose
- Watery, irritated eyes
- Pustules, fluid-filled pimples on areas such as the cheeks and forehead
