Dermatologist brings relief to residents of Rockville suffering from symptoms of rosacea

Symptoms of Rosacea Rockville

Dr. Ronald Prussick, of Washington Dermatology Center, offers a wide range of services, both medical and cosmetic, to residents of Frederick, Rockville, and beyond. Rosacea is a common condition that falls into both the medical and the cosmetic category. In our dermatology practice, we have several solutions that may be ideal for managing this skin condition.

Several medical symptoms of rosacea may be experienced. However, many of our Rockville patients report feeling great concern over the cosmetic impact of this chronic skin condition. More than fifty percent of people affected by rosacea have feelings of embarrassment, frustration, and low self-esteem due to the appearance of their skin. Rosacea most often affects the skin on the face, which cannot be hidden easily.

Technically, rosacea is a condition for which there is no cure. There are, however, several ways to control the symptoms and severity of flare-ups. With a combination of home habits and professional dermatological care, seven in ten people experience improved symptoms and greater emotional wellbeing.

Determining whether symptoms are consistent with rosacea takes a professional eye. Many people, on their own, may consider the chronic redness and “breakouts” as acne. This mistaken diagnosis could lead to further irritation. Rosacea is different from acne and requires treatment designed to reduce flare-ups and soothe irritated skin. Therefore, recognition and diagnosis are important first steps.

Symptoms most commonly seen include:

  • Frequent blushing or flushing
  • Facial redness that does not go away
  • Visible spider veins
  • Bumps and pimples, but no blackheads

Less common, but notable symptoms include:

  • Raised, red patches of skin called plaque
  • Swelling
  • Thicker skin, particularly around the nose
  • Skin is very dry and rough
  • Burning or stinging sensations occur
  • Eyes are easily or chronically irritated, appearing red and, sometimes, swollen
  • Symptoms may appear on the ears, scalp, neck, and chest, as well

Dr. Prussick is a highly experienced dermatologist with locations in Rockville and Frederick. The Washington Dermatology Center offers a variety of treatment options to handle the symptoms of rosacea. To regain control over your skin, and end embarrassment over chronic redness, contact our office for a consultation with Dr. Prussick.
