How is rosacea treated?

Treatment methods vary because the signs and symptoms of rosacea vary from person to person. The following are some treatments used for rosacea:

  • Medicines: Sometimes, doctors prescribe oral and topical medicines to treat the disorder's associated bumps, pimples, and redness. Medicines can bring the condition under control and then maintain its state of remission.
  • Surgical procedures: Doctors can use lasers to remove visible blood vessels, limit the amount of extensive redness on the face, or correct nose disfigurement in some cases.
