How we physically see ourselves can affect everything from our confidence to how we interact with others. For the 16 million Americans living with the chronic skin disorder rosacea, struggling with their appearance can be a daily battle for many reasons. Since the symptoms of rosacea and acne can appear similar, some people with rosacea misdiagnose themselves as having acne and end up inadvertently treating the wrong condition without success.
In fact, in a recent survey of rosacea patients, nearly half misidentified their rosacea as acne before they were ultimately diagnosed. This can lead to inappropriate use of acne treatments, which has the potential to further exacerbate sufferers’ skin. The survey also found that nearly 30% of rosacea patients wear more makeup now than before they were diagnosed with the condition, which can make symptoms even worse.
