Any Treatment for My Thickening Rosacea Skin?

Q:
Can you tell me some treatments for my thickening skin caused by rosacea?

A:
You may find that rosacea can thicken the skin of your nose. It may also occur on your chin, forehead, eyelids, or ears.

Some of the treatments include:

  • Oral medication
    Isotretinoin: It can stop your condition worsening, but it cannot resolve the existing symptom. Women who are pregnant cannot use it, because isotretinoin can cause serious birth defects.
  • Surgery
    The surgery can be complex. After thickened skin is removed, you may need to take oral medications to avoid recurrence.

If you have certain signs and symptoms, go to see a doctor as soon as possible. The earlier you receive a treatment, the better the results are.
