Everyone has their own anatomical quirks that are unique to them—whether they find these features desirable or not. But how do you know when it’s just your “normal” or when it’s an actual disorder that can be treated? Rosacea is one of those conditions that patients often mistake for “just the way their skin is,” but in reality, it’s a true medical disorder with defined signs, symptoms, and (here’s the good news) potential treatments. At Dermatology Associates of Atlanta (DAA), we treat rosacea patients on a daily basis. To learn more about this common yet underdiagnosed condition, take a look at our infographic below.
The idea that you or a loved one may have a diagnosable skin condition can seem scary, but it’s actually a good thing. Being able to put a name on the issue allows you to learn more about it, why it’s happening, and most importantly, how you can minimize it moving forward. If you have more questions or if you think you may have rosacea, schedule an appointment at Dermatology Associates of Atlanta.
