Bad skin days.  Many of us have to deal with them, but what if your skin was extra-sensitive not only to products and the environment but also reacted to certain things you ate or the physical activities you participated in? What if you frequently thought your bumps and pimples, and redness were due to adult acne and you used makeup to cover it up which only made your skin worse?

I can relate to occasional “bad skin days” where I have to take extra measures to deal with acne breakouts or dry, flaky and uneven skin, but recently I’ve learned that for those diagnosed with rosacea “bad skin” days can cause frustration, anxiety and embarrassment.

Although every rosacea patient experiences different symptoms, the few I mentioned above are hallmarks of the condition and also can be triggered differently from patient to patient. So it’s important for those who think they might have the condition to visit a dermatologist and get a proper diagnosis to determine if rosacea is the cause.

Fortunately, for those who have been diagnosed with rosacea, there are several prescription options available from Galderma Laboratories, L.P. One such option is topical Soolantra® (ivermectin) Cream, 1% which provides treatment of inflammatory lesions, or bumps and pimples, of rosacea. In this way rosacea patients can work toward tipping the balance of achieving more of the good and less of the bad any day of the week.
