        The very first thing that people should wonder when they notice some reddened areas on their face is whether they have a highly sensitive skin or if they have suffered from some sort of allergic reaction. If that is cleared and the red patches persist even if there is no direct contact with sunlight or the affected person has not had any sort of aliment or beverage that could cause an allergic reaction, then it might be time to schedule an appointment with your attending physician. Most general practitioners will not even consider the redness a problem, but if the patient insists, they will get send to a specialist: a dermatologist. Now, usually, the dermatologist can diagnose the persons' condition by taking only one look at the pattern of the red dots: rosacea. Of course, for surety, he or she can, before establishing a final rosacea diagnosis and a method for the rosacea treatment to begin, look at some rosacea pictures to figure out in what stage is the disease.

       Rosacea pictures can represent both a good thing and a bad thing. For example, one needs to imagine that the patient presents with these red pustules all over their cheekbones. These can easily be mistaken for some rather classic rosacea symptoms. However, if the person forgets to mention to their dermatologist that they might have had some boiled eggs a couple of days before or that they might have been camping the past weekend, the entire rosacea diagnosis becomes false and the rosacea pictures will only serve to confuse both the physician and the patient even more. On the other hand, a person that suffers from a sort of extra sensitive skin and sees some of these rosacea pictures that float around on the internet, they might consider the redness that appears on their cheekbones is one of the rosacea symptoms and try to administer themselves the rosacea treatment. Keep in mind that self - diagnosis and self - medication is never a good thing, no matter what you might imagine.

        All this talk about rosacea symptoms and about how both patient and physician can decide on the wrong rosacea diagnosis, but the real question has not been answered so far: what is rosacea? Well, as one can imagine from everything that has been discussed, rosacea is a skin condition. Basically, rosacea is an acne - like, benign, but highly annoying skin problem. The most prominent rosacea symptom is, also, the only one that can be easily noticed in rosacea pictures as well as on the face of the affected person: red or pink patches of skin that are crossed by tiny, visibly broken blood vessels. Usually, the first thing someone notices on a rosacea patient is the intensely red lines that traverse pink portions of skin.

       Also part of the more common rosacea symptoms out there are the following ones: small, red bumps, pink or irritated eyes or red cysts surrounding a central area. The cysts are parts of a blood vessel that have broken completely and dilated so much that they become almost round. You might wonder what the irritated eyes have to do with anything. After all, they are not part of the skin tissue. Well, the answer is pretty simple, but it categorizes pink eyes as a rosacea complication, which is never good news. Essentially, if the portion of skin that is affected by rosacea is located too close to the eye, the redness and the broken blood vessels can go up into the eye instead of down on the cheekbones. Unfortunately, if that happens, the patients' eyes will get a classical bloodshot look and because of the fragility of the capillaries present in the eye, the problem could extend rather quickly. In some of the rosacea pictures, one might notice how some patients have a completely reddened eye, with just the pupil visible. However, do not fret, this rosacea complication is rather rare and very few people actually get to have such a problem with their eyesight.

       After the rosacea diagnosis process has been completed, there are two paths that the patient can take. For one, they can choose to simply ignore the condition, since it is obviously not life - threatening. The downside to that decision is that the rosacea symptoms can be highly annoying. Also, in the case of rosacea complications, one can easily imagine that they will be more severe if the condition has not been treated properly before. Therefore, it is recommended, both by the dermatologist and by common sense, that the patient will follow the rosacea treatment. Unfortunately, this rosacea treatment is a bit tricky. To start with, a patient must be informed that rosacea is incurable. Basically, if one follows the rosacea treatment scheme to the letter, one will not get rid of the illness. The patient will be absolved from this breakout of the hated redness, not cured from it.

       Essentially, a Rosacea Treatment scheme includes the following two types of drugs: a topical cream, applied locally on the affected areas of skin, usually containing metronidazole or azelaic acid and some oral antibiotics, such as tetracycline and amoxicillin. The effect of these drugs is obvious: they reduce the inflammation of the epidermal tissue and protect the capillaries, preventing them from breaking. Again, keep in mind that these drugs treat the rosacea symptoms and not the cause, therefore offering only momentary relief.

       Here is another piece of information that is good to have under any circumstances: rosacea one of the most common benign skin conditions out there. Also, just like any other incurable skin disease, it does get worse once the skin ages. That translates into the next phrase: the older you get, the worse your rosacea symptoms are. Most patients have suffered from this illness from early childhood, rosacea in children being easily missed because of the fact that the little ones tend to have a better peripheral circulation, making their rosy cheeks a sign of health, not one of illness. Another thing that might come as a surprise, but that is true in the case of this condition is that there is no such thing as contagious rosacea. Fundamentally, you are born with it, you cannot catch it from direct contact with affected skin or with towels and clothes belonging to the infected persons.

       As a conclusion, rosacea is one of those skin conditions where the picture it paints on the skin of the patient is much worse than the illness itself. With the proper care and precautions, the bouts of redness can be reduced to a couple a year and the patient can continue with their daily life undisturbed.
