Rosacea Treatment and You

Other Rosacea Treatments

You can treat dry eyes of ocular rosacea with liquid tears and cleaning your eyelids every day with warm water. You may need to see an eye doctor to prevent problems.

Laser treatments can help get rid of visible blood vessels and redness caused by rosacea.

Surgery or laser treatments may help people with rhinophyma, a rare form of rosacea that causes the nose to swell and deform.

The Psychological Effects of Rosacea

People who have rosacea may be embarrassed about how they look. Some avoid being around other people. And because of symptoms like a red nose and cheeks, people with rosacea are sometimes unjustly thought to be heavy drinkers.

If your symptoms are seriously affecting your mood and self-esteem, do something about it. Treatment for your rosacea symptoms is key. You could also ask your doctor about using makeup to hide affected patches of skin. If you're stressed or depressed, you might get help from counseling or medications. Never ignore signs of anxiety or depression. Talk to your doctor right away so that you can get help.
