How long have you battled with rosacea? I was diagnosed a few years ago, but began experiencing symptoms in my 30s. Until I was diagnosed with rosacea, I thought I was just dealing with acne.
Was it difficult to diagnose? When I first noticed bumps and pimples on my face, I thought the acne I experienced during my teenage years was back to haunt me. I resumed my anti-acne routine, using harsh astringents, scrubs and anti-bacterial washes, but nothing seemed to help. It was only when I went to visit my dermatologist that I learned I had rosacea. I learned that my do-it-yourself skincare regimen was actually making my symptoms worse and started taking a prescription medication. Now I have my rosacea under control.
