Rosacea: More than just redness

End the stigma and feel the change with Kleresca®

Rosacea Awareness Month is an opportune time to spread awareness, education, and treatment options. We believe in continuing to educate society about the facts around rosacea for a few reasons. Of course, we want more people to actively seek help if they experience rosacea symptoms. But we also want those without rosacea to know about this skin condition in order to eliminate judgement and unsolicited, and potentially hurtful, comments.

First, let’s start with some basics about rosacea.

Subtypes, as classified by the National Rosacea Society Expert Committee:

Subtype 1: flushing, persistent redness, vascular lines
Subtype 2: Persistent redness, swelling, bumps and pimples, burning sensation
Subtype 3: Thickening and enlargement of skin, normally in the nose area
Subtype 4: Eye irritation, burning sensation and red eyelids
