What’s the difference between acne and rosacea?
Rosacea is more likely to affect adult women with fair skin. The main cause is a circulation disorder in the small vessels of the face. The most common form of rosacea does not resemble acne: rosacea is marked by facial redness and small vessels visible on the surface of the skin (rosacea). The papulopustular form, on the other hand, develops in flare-ups and has inflammatory lesions very similar to those of acne, hence the risk of confusion.
Doctors know how to differentiate between acne and rosacea and will be able to suggest a suitable treatment for acne or rosacea.
Which treatment should I use for acne or rosacea?
Rosacea can be treated with specific creams, for example with metronidazole. As in acne, some antibacterials are indicated. If such treatment fails, acne treatments, i.e. retinoids, can be effective.
Whether you suffer from acne or rosacea, in both cases, hygiene and care must be gentle and adapted to the condition. You should also consider corrective medical and natural makeup to neutralize the redness of acne or rosacea lesions.
