Although there is no cure for rosacea, medical help is widely available to treat and minimize its effects. Today many dermatologists -- including professional members of the National Rosacea Society -- are familiar with rosacea and are experienced in treating its various signs and symptoms. For ocular rosacea (rosacea of the eyes), treatment by an ophthalmologist may be recommended. Lasers or other medical and surgical devices may be used to remove visible blood vessels or excess tissue.
Below are links to find a local dermatologist, ophthalmologist or laser surgeon to treat signs and symptoms of rosacea.

The National Rosacea Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve the lives of people with rosacea by raising awareness, providing public health information and supporting medical research on this widespread but little-known disorder. The information the Society provides should not be considered medical advice, nor is it intended to replace
consultation with a qualified physician. The Society does not evaluate, endorse or recommend any particular medications, products, equipment or treatments. Rosacea may vary substantially from one patient to another, and treatment must be tailored by a physician for each individual case. For more information, visit About Us.
