When to contact your GP?
There are different types of rosacea, and some people may experience an overlap of one or more signs and symptoms of this skin condition. Each individual sign and symptom may progress from mild to moderate to severe. Therefore, it is important to visit your GP for an assessment, diagnosis, appropriate advice and treatment or onward referral to a dermatologist if required.
Visiting a doctor will provide an impartial opinion about the severity of your symptoms, what kind of skin care/treatment may help you and reassurance about how common rosacea is.
Rosacea can resemble other dermatology skin conditions; therefore, it is important to get a diagnosis from your GP.
