Good English language skills are usually helpful when advising foreign-language customers. PTA-Forum has compiled the most important vocabulary, questions and advice on "rosacea".
Despite puberty being long over, papules and pustules can suddenly appear in the face. These unsightly skin impurities could be caused by rosacea. Although this particular dermatitis may look very similar to acne, rosacea has nothing in common with acne.
Those mostly affected are older women, often well past 60. The early stage of the disease is also known as couperose. It may not be possible to completely heal rosacea, but by using special medication and the right type of cosmetic skin care, the symptoms can in most cases be substantially improved. Furthermore, suitable non-medicinal measures can stop rosacea from progressing.
People affected by skin impurities in their face often find it very burdensome and seek advice first from a chemist. Before a remedy can be recommended PTA or the chemist need to ask a number of questions.
