What is the difference between acne vulgaris and acne rosacea?

0

Acne vulgaris a more common form of acne and is caused by clogging and inflammation of the skin’s hair follicles. Rosacea, on the other hand, is not actually a form of acne at all, even though it looks that way in its early stages. Rosacea is an inherited vascular disorder in which the blood vessels of the face become swollen after repeated exposure to certain triggers such as extreme temperatures, alcohol, spicy food, etc. While it starts as a simple blushing, it advances into bumps on the face that look like an acne breakout. Like common acne, Rosacea is treatable… but not by the same regimen! Skin prone to Rosacea must be treated gently to avoid triggering redness and inflammation, and may also require a dermatologists prescription for special medication to control the symptoms. (See Dermalogicas what is sensitized skin fact sheet for more information on Rosacea.
