>For those of you who don’t know:

  • Rosacea is a chronic condition of unknown origin that primarily affect the central area of the face, especially the cheeks, nose, chin, or forehead
  • It usually causes flushing and redness, as well as bumps and pimples
  • Rosacea is often marked by flare-ups and remissions
  • By managing your triggers and using FINACEA® (if appropriate for you) and rosacea-friendly skin-care products, you can keep your rosacea under control
  • What this means basicly is, its a rash, it comes and goes, when it comes, it gets better and worse, they don’t know what causes it (and aren’t really interested in finding out).

    I have often wondered if I had rosacea since sometimes my face would get really red. This time I got nasty red bumps on my left check and side of my nose. That is what prompted the trip to the doctor. Now I have the diagnosis and a prescription cream for it, which better work since I paid $40 for it!

    So that’s my excitement for the day. How’s your day been?
