Rosacea treatment

If you need to look into the various Rosacea treatments currently available, consider the relative severity of the condition first before you jump in to a potentially expensive 'cure'.

Some forms of Rosacea treatments are simply to refrain from coming into contact with certain inflammatory substances. Other rosacea treatments can be to avoid cosmetics containing alpha-hydroxy (glycolic acid) including lotions and scrubs.

Products which contain parabens or any other formaldehyde preservatives, benzyl alcohol, polyethylene glycol, propylene glycol or lanolin can also cause the condition to worsen. An oral antibiotic can be another effective cure for your skin condition.

Medicines such as tetracycline, erythromycin, doxycycline and minocycline can sometimes help alleviate symptoms, but Isotretinoin should be used with caution, as it has serious side effects, including causing birth defects.

It is also helpful as a means of Rosacea treatment to identify triggers in your daily life. Some triggers that have been identified include: hot beverages, stress, anger, alcohol, vigorous exercise, prolonged sun exposure and fast or extreme temperature changes. These can all cause blood vessels in the face to expand. If you experience symptoms, be sure to consult your doctor or dermatologist.
