Roughly 14 million people in the United States are living with this chronic disorder, according to the National Institutes of Health. If you’re one of them, your symptoms may include the following:
- frequent flushing in the center of the face, possibly accompanied by hot or stinging skin
- pimple-like bumps
- red, watery, sore eyes
- tangles of spider veins and/or thickened skin in flush-prone areas
If this sounds familiar, stop in for a consultation. Often, controlling early symptoms is as easy as avoiding triggers (like extreme temperatures and certain foods), smoothing on a prescription cream, and possibly using a low-dose antibiotic. For more advanced cases, lasers and other in-office procedures can treat spider veins and smooth thickened skin.
