Acne Rosacea Treatment Overview
First steps to consider
- You can usually treat mild to moderate rosacea at home.
- Try to limit triggers like spicy food, mint, alcohol, sun exposure (wear sunscreen), heat, and harsh cosmetic products.
- Use a gentle moisturizer that repairs the skin barrier. Look for products that contain ceramides.
When you may need a provider
- You’ve tried home treatments for 4–6 weeks with no improvement in the rosacea.
- You have lots of pimples or pus-filled bumps (pustules) on your face.
- Your skin hurts or is constantly red.
- You have eye pain or grittiness (feels like there is sand in your eye), which may be a sign of ocular rosacea.
Go to the ER if you have any of these symptoms:
- Severe skin or facial pain along with a fever
