    Default What is Rosacea?

    More than 14 million people in North America have rosacea, a chronic skin condition. Women, fair-skinned people between the ages of 30 and 60 are more likely to be affected.

    Symptoms and signs of rosacea include:

    Areas of redness on your face

    Small red bumps or pustules on your nose, cheeks, forehead, and/or chin

    Small blood vessels on your nose and/or cheeks (called telangiectasia)

    Tendency to flush or blush

    Rosacea may also result in a red, bulbous nose, called rhinophyma, or a burning or gritty sensation in your eyes, called ocular rosacea.

    Is Daktacort a prescription medication? I've tried so many creams and none of them worked. I want to start trying more over the counter products so that I don't have to keep paying the deductible on my health insurance. I'm also hesitant to use a steroid cream because it can be very damaging to the skin and body. But if it works I just might take the leap and try it.
