If your “rosy cheeks” have not dissipated with the arrival of Spring, perhaps it is time to call our Lombard location to set up an evaluation with one of our providers. Educate yourself about this chronic condition by making yourself aware of some of the warning signs, courtesy of The National Rosacea Society:

Primary Signs of Rosacea

  • Flushing
    Many people with rosacea have a history of frequent blushing or flushing. This facial redness may come and go, and is often the earliest sign of the disorder.
  • Persistent Redness
    Persistent facial redness is the most common individual sign of rosacea, and may resemble a blush or sunburn that does not go away.
  • Bumps and Pimples
    Small red solid bumps or pus-filled pimples often develop. While these may resemble acne, blackheads are absent and burning or stinging may occur.
  • Visible Blood Vessels
    In many people with rosacea, small blood vessels become visible on the skin.”
