Terrible Skin Please Help! (Pics)rosacea
Posted 22 December 2012 - 01:53 PM
Don't know if anyone can help but i have both acne and this terrible complexion.
Does anyone know what this is? Is it rosacea? I don't have any facial flushing.
In the past I've had a few glycolic peels done and I'm not sure if I can attribute this to those or not. I'm worried that they might have caused it.
Does anyone know what I can do about this, or what it could be?

Not all rosacea flushes.
I'm looking into laser treatments because frankly there is no cure. I've done the whole gamut of rosacea treatments, both prescription and holistic. What I would recommend is treat the acne first and then look into laser for the rosacea. It's much easier to treat the rosacea once the active acne is gone. Most laser treatments you can't do with active acne anyway...and acne's constant inflammation will make rosacea worse faster.

GreenGables - I also seem to have a bit of a red rash on my chest, is it possible for rosacea to spread there too?
I read your story on how you cleared your acne; it's very inspiring to me and gives me a bit of hope. If you don't mind my asking, how long did you suffer with acne before you got it under control?
Goodluck with your laser treatments!
