If you are currently suffering from the bumps and blemishes of rosacea, they may be all you see when you look in the mirror. But it doesn’t have to be that way. First, know that you are not alone. There are an estimated 16 million people in the United States suffering from rosacea.
Second, stop letting that “annoying companion” upstage you! The good news is: treatment can help. ORACEA® (doxycycline, USP) 40 mg* Capsules, can help treat the bumps and blemishes of rosacea in adult patients. ORACEA Capsules are a once-daily treatment that work from within to target and relieve the bumps and blemishes of rosacea. Ask your doctor about ORACEA Capsules, the #1 rosacea brand among dermatologists,** and see if it may be right for you.
According to a 2014 survey by the National Rosacea Society, many rosacea sufferers reported that the disease makes them feel frustrated, anxious, and helpless. In some cases, rosacea symptoms can evoke feelings of depression, and may prompt sufferers to isolate themselves and avoid face-to-face contact with other people.
For people with rosacea, or those who suspect they might have the condition, it is important to contact a dermatologist or other health care professional to help manage the condition. Although there is no cure for rosacea, there are effective treatments available, such as ORACEA Capsules, that can help manage your symptoms.
