Can I talk to a doctor on Maple about my rosacea?

Yes. In most cases, a doctor on Maple would be able to treat rosacea online by asking about your symptoms and observing your condition, and by taking a look at your skin through a photo or by video. 

Once you describe your symptoms to the doctor, they will be able to diagnose you, prescribe appropriate medication, and recommend an appropriate course of treatment. If the doctor suspects you have a more serious problem, they may suggest for you to go to a clinic for a thorough physical examination.

In select provinces, you can also request to see a dermatologist right on Maple about your rosacea. To learn more about how our online dermatology assessments work, please click here

Can I get a prescription on Maple?

What is rosacea?

Rosacea is a fairly common chronic skin disease which can be identified by skin redness, caused by the swelling of blood vessels. There are four main types of rosacea:

  • Erythematotelangiectatic rosacea, which is characterized by burning and stinging alongside the centre of your face. 
  • Papulopustular rosacea which includes acne-like breakouts on the face accompanied by redness and swelling.
  • Phymatous rosacea, which causes thickening of the skin and changes in skin texture.
  • Ocular rosacea, which causes red and very irritated eyes with possible swelling and burning.
What are the symptoms of rosacea?

Symptoms of rosacea include:

  • Facial redness
  • Changes in skin texture
  • Eye issues, including itchiness, blurred vision, redness and increased sensitivity to light
  • Swollen red bumps
How can I treat rosacea?

Rosacea comes in many forms, each with its own treatment methods. It’s important to speak with a doctor to understand what treatment options are right for you. Doctors may prescribe medications to reduce redness, or antibiotics to fight inflammation. 

Additionally, creams such as isotretinoin are available to combat rosacea.
