This winter was unusually hard for much of the country, and just when the seasonal triggers of severe weather are lifting, spring is here to deliver its own host of triggers for rosacea flare-ups.
Sometimes referred to as “rosacea season,” spring brings increased sun, wind exposure, temperature changes, outdoor activity and seasonal allergies that can conspire as tripwires for various rosacea patients, sending many to the dermatologist office in search of relief.
If your rosacea is particularly sensitive this time of the year, employ the rosacea spring “toolkit” -- medical therapy, proper sun protection and lifestyle management --- to keep rosacea season at bay.
Medical Therapy Compliance
Proper Sun Protection
These are only some of the triggers that may cause rosacea flare-ups, and many other factors may aggravate your individual case.
