11 December 2012Advice has been offered to individuals who are suffering from rosacea and are struggling to find a treatment that works for them. Rosacea is a skin condition that leads to people developing redness in the central areas of the face, such as the cheeks, nose, forehead and chin.An online advice column called Drs Donohue and Roach, which is featured on thetowntalk.com, said the most important thing people must do if they have the condition is to use protective sun cream whenever they are outside. This is because harmful ultraviolet rays found in sunlight are one of the biggest reasons why individuals can develop the condition. The experts recommended investigating laser treatment, as this can be used to get rid of the spiderweb-like aggregations of blood vessels. Alternatively, oral antibiotics work for some people, while Periostat can be obtained in small doses that are specially designed for use by those with rosacea. Most importantly, individuals must speak to a doctor or dermatologist to get expert advice on how to deal with the issue most effectively.
