Rosacea is an inflammatory skin condition that is characterized by facial redness, prominent facial blood vessels (telangiectasias), red bumps, and pustules. Although the exact etiology is unknown, UV exposure and immune dysregulation are thought to play a significant role in rosacea. Depending upon the type of rosacea and the clinical presentation, some treatments may include:
- Oral antibiotics: minocycline, doxycycline
- Topical Medications: metronidazole, azelaic acid, sodium sulfacetamide, Soolantra® (ivermectin)
- Pulsed Dye Laser (PDL)
- CO₂ Laser
