Acne is a common skin condition characterized by clogged pores, pimples, and sometimes deeper cysts or nodules. Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that causes redness, visible blood vessels, and sometimes bumps or pimples on the face. Milia are small, white cysts that typically appear on the face.

⚠️ Medium Risk: Acne, rosacea, and milia are usually not dangerous in the sense of being life-threatening, but they can impact self-esteem and quality of life.

💊 Treatment: Treatment and diagnosis for acne, rosacea, and milia can vary based on severity. For acne, a dermatologist can provide diagnosis and treatment options, which may include topical medications, oral medications, or procedures like laser therapy. Similarly, for rosacea and milia, a dermatologist is the specialist to see for diagnosis and management. Urgency depends on the severity of symptoms and impact on quality of life.

💡 Skin Self-Exams tips: While self-examination is more critical for detecting skin cancer, it’s still essential to monitor changes in acne, rosacea, and milia. Regularly inspect your skin for any new or worsening lesions, changes in size or appearance, or signs of infection. If you notice any concerning changes, seek advice from a dermatologist.
