Rosacea & eczema: There are several excellent answers on the differences between rosacea and eczema. I would like to add one condition that is rosacea but can look like eczema.

It has very little downtime and is done in the office. This should be combined with sun protection. In my opinion, the syneron/candela v-beam perfecta laser is the best pdl. This will help the facial redness, but may require a few treatments. ...Read more
