Q&A

Q&A: Spa Treatments & Disease vs. Sydrome

Q: Should I avoid day spa treatments such as facials, exfoliation and steaming if I have rosacea?

Q&A: High Blood Pressure & Allergies

Q. Do a lot of people with rosacea also have problems with high blood pressure and anxiety? And, if blood pressure and anxiety are controlled, does rosacea improve?

Q&A: Time to Flare-up & Rosacea on the Legs

Q. How quickly does a rosacea flare-up occur after contact with a trigger factor?

A. Although there are currently no data on how quickly exposure to a rosacea trigger may lead to a flare-up, the timing is likely to vary depending on the individual and nature of the trigger. You might try monitoring your individual case to see how quickly you respond to specific triggers. And remember, while a wide range of factors has been identified as potential triggers, not every trigger affects every individual.

Q&A: Microdermabrasion & Herpes

Q. Would having microdermabrasion or a glycolic acid peel help or hurt my rosacea?

A. Many rosacea patients have unusually sensitive skin. These procedures should be discussed with your dermatologist or other physician, and make sure they are performed by a physician experienced in these procedures.

The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) has issued consumer safety tips for skin treatments, and additional information may be obtained by calling the ASDS hotline at 1-800-441-2737.

Q&A: Menopause & Location

Q. Is there any relationship between the onset of menopause and the beginning of rosacea?

A. While the cause of rosacea remains unknown, its signs and symptoms, especially the flushing characteristic of subtype 1 (erythematotelangiectatic) rosacea, may initially be noted while women are experiencing menopause. In these cases, alleviating the underlying flushing may help keep rosacea under control.
