What is Rosacea?

Rosacea is a very common and chronic skin disease that causes skin redness or a “flush” of the face. About 14 million Americans live with Rosacea and are usually between the ages of 30-50 years old. Rosacea sufferers have fair skin, and are likely to have had acne problems in their family, or when they were younger. If you suffer from acne, get in touch to discuss acne treatment options for the condition. There are four different types of Rosacea a person can have including, facial redness, flushing, and visible blood vessels, acne-like breakouts, thickened skin, and Ocular Rosacea (in the eyes), which looks similar to a sty. In each subtype, the Rosacea prone skin can become swollen, sensitive and dry, and also have persistent redness and inflammation or a stinging or burning sensation.

What triggers Rosacea?

While the actual cause of the Rosacea skin condition is unknown, researchers believe it is a combination of genetics and environmental factors that cause rosacea symptoms, and not necessarily caused by poor hygiene. Outbreaks of Rosacea have also been linked to a number of triggers including, but not limited to, hot drinks and spicy foods, temperature extremes, red wine, and other alcoholic beverages, certain cosmetics or skin care products and more.

How do you diagnose Rosacea?

There are other conditions that have similar symptoms to a Rosacea skin disease, so it is important to get diagnosed before starting any home remedy or Rosacea treatment. Rosacea is normally diagnosed after an external examination of the face followed by some questions asked by a Dermatologist or Doctor for the right rosacea skin treatment.

How can it be treated?

While there is no cure, there are ways to reduce rosacea flare, skin inflammation, outbreaks and relieve any pain or redness caused by this skin condition with Rosacea medications. It’s important for Rosacea patients to understand what events cause your outbreak of Rosacea so you can limit those Rosacea triggers. Home remedies also recommend using a daily sunscreen to protect the skin and prevent further skin discoloration and irritation.

  • Oral Medication – Oral antibiotics are usually prescribed for people with moderate to severe cases of Rosacea.
  • Topical Medications – A doctor may prescribe Rosacea creams and gels as a topical treatment for constricting or broken blood vessels which can temporarily decrease the redness of your skin and relieve the stinging or burning sensation caused by inflammatory Rosacea.
