Acne & Rosacea
SkinCare in Wellesley, MA
For patients, it can be difficult to determine whether redness, bumps, or swelling are caused by acne, rosacea, or folliculitis. Each of these conditions have unique treatments, which can be determined by an expert dermatologist such as Dr. Goodkin.
There are many types of acne, ranging from pimples and pustules to cystic acne. Treatments may include oral medication or topical treatments.
Rosacea causes a flushed appearance due to visible blood vessels and, in some cases, small pimples or bumps. Patients may experience occasional flare-ups or consistent rosacea symptoms.
Folliculitis is usually caused by a fungal or bacterial infection that causes the hair follicles to become inflamed. Patients may see small red or white bumps around the hair follicle.
