Patient Comments: Rosacea - Symptoms

What symptoms did you experience with rosacea?

Comment from: wilmoth7, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: May 18

I have it only on my right cheek area. First thought it was just acne, but it would never go away. Flares up and then gets much better, but always there. My sister says it is rosacea, and she may be right. I thought some have it all over their face.

I have never experienced rosacea on my face but after consulting a doctor for rashes on my back and sides, had been diagnosed as the same condition. I have had this for a few years without any luck curing it.

Just wanted to say that I had the best advice for rosacea and my skin has not been better. No soap for sure!! I also drink green tea everyday. It is like a miracle. My own tip is to use babywipes to wash your face. My skin is 150% better.

With my rosacea, I experienced apple-colored cheeks, nose and jaw line. It was more predominant on the right side.
