If you have Rosacea, you may feel very self-conscious when the symptoms make their mark, but you are not alone. Rosacea flare-ups affect over 16 million Americans. And you are not in danger. Rosacea may not be something you would choose to live with, but living with it won’t harm your health.
But as we said, you may not want to have to live with the red flushed skin, the small red puss-filled bumps, and the unpredictability of when you may have a flare-up. Not to mention that you have no control over how long that flare-up will last.
There is no specific test to diagnose Rosacea. Your doctor may run tests to rule out other conditions that have the same signs and symptoms, but once those are ruled out, your doctor will likely diagnose you with Rosacea.
