I am one of the estimated 16 million Americans that have rosacea, yet only a small fraction are being treated.
I didn't even know I had it.
Sure my cheeks were pink but it's summer,went to Florida and finally summer is also in Ohio warm hot humid steamy tropical 🌴 like and I love it, my bones thrive in it. So I'm trying to take advantage of it
Unfortunately my cheeks never returned to their natural pale color or even slightly tanned from vacation, they remained looking like I had a slight sunburn but it felt as if someone took a torch to me face then stung me with some rubber bands.
I figured I better get to a skin doctor.
Yep we have confirmed it ROSACEA
It's been linked to several AutoImmune disorders and of course it has its own set of triggers and every one is different
So time to learn about something else….
Heading to the website of the National Rosacea Society since provides information that may help rosacea patients better understand their disorder and more effectively manage its signs and symptoms.
