Working With Your Doctor to Manage Rosacea
The role you play in managing your rosacea is important. You can take several steps to keep rosacea under control:
- Keeping a written record of when flares occur may provide clues about what is irritating the skin.
- Most people should use a sunscreen every day that protects against UVA and UVB rays (ultraviolet rays) and has a sun-protecting factor (SPF) of 15 or higher, but sunscreen is particularly important for people whose skin is irritated by exposure to the sun.
- Using a mild lubricant may be helpful, but avoid applying any irritating products to the face. Some people find that a green-tinted makeup effectively conceals skin redness.
- If your eyes are affected, faithfully follow your doctor’s treatment plan and clean your eyelids as instructed.
