Care Plan


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.
