Rosacea can be an embarrassing condition that can lead to permanent damage if not treated. It is a chronic skin condition that causes the skin to turn red and may create acne-like skin sores and swelling, and is often confused with acne. While it is harmless, it can cause social, emotional and occupational damage because of its unsightly appearance. While it is common with an estimated 16 million Americans effected, most people aren’t aware they have the condition.
While there is no known cure for rosacea, the symptoms and damage can be treated and controlled. Receiving treatment for rosacea overseas cuts down significantly on the costs associated with rosacea treatment. Medical tourism allows patients to travel overseas to receive the same medical treatment for rosacea for much lower costs.
