Rosacea from the Cold Weather

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi everyone

I began getting Rosacea on my face just after Christmas.  Prior to that I have never had it before and think it must have began due to the stress of exams.  My problem is that everytime (literally) I go outside for more than a couple of minutes it flares up. It itches and burns.  It always seems to appear just on my cheeks and across the bridge of my nose, and a tiny bit on my chin.

Does anybody else find the cold causes a Rosacea flare up? If so, any suggestions? I'm back at uni next week and i'm worried that people `take the mick` out of my rashy face.

Many Thanks

Jade

    Hi Jade,

    Roscea can flare up at any time mine seems to get worse with heat, have you seen a doctor he could prescribe you with a course of anti biotics that may help good luck it is a terrible problem.

      Hi Jade, unfortunatly rosacea can flare up as soon as you go outside, especially if it's cold. If your antibiotics and antibiotic don't work have you tried a natural sulphur cream? Please see Sulphur Skin Care's website for more details. Hope this helps :-)

    I have mild redness all over my face and adding dermalmd rosacea serum to my skin care routine has made a notable difference. I have sensitive skin and am prone to breakouts and dermalmd serum worked beautifully. It wasn't too heavy or fragrant.
