Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes visible changes to the appearance of the skin. People with rosacea may experience inflammation, redness, visible blood vessels, and acne-like bumps, usually on the face. Rosacea can affect anyone. But it’s more common in middle-aged white women.

Signs and symptoms can flare for weeks or months at a time and then go away for a while. The cause of rosacea is unknown. But family history, environmental conditions, and certain triggers (such as spicy foods) may play a role in flare-ups.

It’s easy to mistake rosacea for acne or an allergic reaction. If you’ve tried acne treatments and your skin hasn’t cleared, it might be rosacea. During your online consultation, our board-certified dermatologists will develop a customized treatment plan to address all your skin concerns. We also treat acne online.

Rosacea symptoms vary. There are several subtypes of this skin disease. Some cause facial redness and flushing, others acne-like bumps or even eye problems and changes to skin texture. You may experience a combination of symptoms, which can include:

    Topical treatments and oral medications can help calm the signs and symptoms of rosacea faster. It’s also important to avoid known triggers that cause flare-ups. Common triggers include spicy foods, alcohol, stress, heat, and sunlight.
    There is no one “best” treatment for rosacea. Topical drugs that reduce flushing, such as brimonidine, are helpful for some people. Medications like metronidazole and azelaic acid may help control the pimple-like bumps of rosacea. Your online rosacea doctor will determine the best treatment for you based on your health history, symptoms, and other factors. CallonDoc offers same-day prescriptions.
    Over the counter (OTC) creams may help reduce redness and itching, but these are temporary solutions, and they don’t work for everyone. A CallonDoc online dermatologist can provide you with a customized treatment plan to control the signs and symptoms of rosacea and help prevent future flare-ups.
    The cause of rosacea is unknown, but family history (heredity), lifestyle and environmental factors, and immune system response are all possible contributing factors.
    Some of the most common symptoms of rosacea are flushing, redness, and acne-like bumps. In more severe cases, a person may experience changes in skin texture, especially of the skin on the nose. Some people with rosacea also experience dry, irritated, and swollen eyes and eyelids. In more severe cases where there is ocular involvement, you may need to see an in-person doctor for this medical condition. There are several subtypes of rosacea, and not everyone will experience the same exact set of symptoms. It’s important to see a doctor to get an accurate diagnosis.
    Common rosacea triggers include spicy foods, alcohol consumption, extreme temperature changes, sunlight exposure, and stress.
    Anyone can develop rosacea. But you may be more likely to develop it if you are a female over age 30, have skin that burns easily, or have a family history of rosacea.
    A CallonDoc dermatologist can determine whether you have rosacea by learning about your symptoms, health history, and other information. If the doctor determines that treatment is appropriate, they can prescribe a same-day prescription for you to pick up at your local pharmacy.
    For most people, a mix of oral treatments or topical medications is best for managing symptoms. Topical drugs like metronidazole work by soothing inflammation, while antibiotics like doxycycline can help keep bacteria that may contribute to flare-ups under control. CallonDoc will find the best treatment plan to help reduce the chances of flare-ups.
