ROSACEA

Therapeutic Approach

Rosacea is a common, chronic inflammatory skin disease, mainly of the central face. It can be categorized based on typical clinical signs and symptoms, which can occur solitary or in combination: transient or persistent erythema, telangiectasia, flushing, papules with/without pustules, phymata (glandular hyperplasia, fibrosis) with/without burning pain sensation, typically without pruritus. Ocular rosacea can occur with/without skin rosacea. Rosacea can be accompanied by mild to severe burning/pain. Rare forms are granulomatous, conglobate, or fulminans Rosacea. Therapy should be based on combination of signs and symptoms and severity. See Table 72-1.
