The Doctors invited some guests to appear on today’s show to talk about Rosacea and how it has affected their lives. One woman named Jessica said that she calls herself tomato face. After she exercises her cheeks becomes red and it takes awhile for them to cool down. Jessica explained that she has seen many doctors and has tried all sorts of prescriptions with limited success. She said that she covers up her rosacea with makeup, but she feels the makeup is now giving her acne. Dr. Ordon said that she indeed does have Rosacea and some of the symptoms that she has is the direct result of inflammation of the sebaceous glands.
