A. Yes. Known as ocular rosacea, eye symptoms may include a watery or bloodshot appearance and a dry, gritty feeling with burning, itching and/or stinging. Individuals with rosacea may be prone to styes, and light sensitivity and blurred vision may also be present. Left untreated, decreased visual acuity due to corneal involvement may occur. Eye involvement may appear before as well as after any skin signs or symptoms, and individuals who suspect they may have ocular rosacea should consult a dermatologist or ophthalmologist for appropriate therapy.
Steroid induced rosacea can be caused by the prolonged (usually daily) use of a topical steroid on the face. The presentation is typically of inflammatory acne lesions consisting of pustules, papules, and cysts. We treat steroid induced rosacea by gradually weaning the patient off the topical steroid while simultaneously treating with either a topical or systemic antibiotic. In my experience, steroid induced rosacea is not permanent when treated correctly. I recommend you consult with a board-certified dermatologist to make sure your condition gets resolved in a proper manner and time frame.
What is Rosacea Laser Treatment? Reddish bumps, papules or pus-filled swellings across the central part of the face and around the mouth or eyes. Steroid rosacea may become especially severe when the topical steroid cream is discontinued. Various treatment modalities tried in these patients include oral antibiotics like tetracycline, doxycycline, minocycline, and azithromycin. He also prescribed me with tacrolimus protopic ointment and lymecycline for a few weeks. Follow immediately with lubrication. Otherwise, dermatologists might fall victim to lawsuits.
