Keeping a diary can help your rosacea

Posted on 20 Sep, 2011

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition and those who are affected by it will experience repeated bouts of redness and flushing. One of the most challenging aspects of the condition is learning what factors can trigger your own symptoms, as these vary widely from person to person.

Rosacea treatment can be very effective, but it is important to learn how to manage the condition in order to reduce or limit future flare-ups. One way of doing this is to monitor your skin very closely on a daily basis and record what you find. In short, you need to keep a rosacea diary.

The important information to note down includes the date, the severity of your rosacea and any possible triggers. Decide how you want to record the severity: it could be a scale from 1 to 10, or simply a description of the various symptoms. Make a complete list of possible triggers and refer to that when you consider which ones could have affected you each day.

The longer you keep a diary, the more understanding you will gain of your own condition. If you then go ahead with AIPL rosacea treatment, you will be much better equipped to keep your skin looking good and reduce future problems.
