Tips on treating, preventing rosacia
BATON ROUGE - Dr. Z discussed tips on treating and preventing skin redness associated with rosacea.
She said rosacea can cause both severe or mild redness and irritation, and that certain perfumes or foods can trigger it or make it worse.
Dr. Z said people are usually in their thirties when they start to notice the effects of rosacea. They might mistake it for acne and use the wrong products to treat it; she said astringents can actually make the problem worse.
A treatment she recommended is called IPL, or intense pulse light. It's a laser which can help bring even severe forms of rosacea under control.
