Rosacea Sufferers Often Think They Have Acne

Many people with rosacea may mistakenly think they have acne. This can be a problem since treatment for rosacea is different than that for acne.

"Rosacea can have devastating effects on self-esteem because it is so noticeable on the face," said dermatologist Dr. James Q. Del Rosso, clinical assistant professor in the department of dermatology at the University of Nevada, in Las Vegas. "It is important for individuals with rosacea to seek treatment early to avoid progression of the condition and avoid any permanent scarring to the face." (UPI)
