What causes rosacea flare-ups and what treatment options are available for New Orleans patients struggling with this condition?By Dr. Mary Lupo
Rosacea flare-ups are triggered by specific incidents or activities, which can include taking a shower or bath that is too warm, sun exposure, stress, blushing, exposure to extreme temperatures or wind, excessive exercise, and specific foods and drinks, such as warm beverages, alcohol, high levels of caffeine, and spicy foods.
There are several treatments available for reducing the problems and conditions linked to rosacea. However, these are determined based on a patient’s needs, as well as the severity of their condition. Patients with milder cases of rosacea may benefit from prescription topical and oral therapies when flare-ups arise, while others with more severe cases of rosacea may want to consider long-term, regular solutions including laser treatments and lifestyle changes. Dr. Lupo of New Orleans works with patients to determine which treatment works best for each individual and how they can benefit from the confidence that they can achieve when their rosacea is under control.
A thorough examination and a proper diagnosis can help in achieving better skin and reducing problems associated with this condition.
