If rosacea has been a long-term problem for you, I strongly recommend that you invest some time with a physician with special expertise in the condition so that your unique symptoms can be properly diagnosed. Reputable physicians will insist on making a diagnosis before they treat you, but multiple repeat visits are usually not required. In the meantime, here are some safe, effective, and inexpensive treatments you can do on your own.
Rosacea is a skin problem of the face. In this the facial skin gets a reddish tone forever. It may cause itching and also cause spider veins and acne like pimples. Rosacea gets flared with triggers such as sun, caffeine, alcohol, spiced food etc. Though there is no cure for rosacea, it can be controlled. Let us find out more.
Any person with symptoms assembling the ones present in Rosacea must immediately see a dermatologist. If you are diagnosed with Rosacea, you should know there is no actual cure for the condition and its real cause of development is still unknown. Ways of keeping Rosacea under control are still available and must be used in order to prevent the condition and its symptoms from evolving into more serious complications.
Rosacea makes the face look red. Especially the central part of the face always looks red in rosacea. This begins slowly. If found in time, a lot can be done to stop this. But once rosacea develops fully, nothing much can be done. If you notice that your face blushes after drinking hot drinks, tea or coffee suspect rosacea. If your face becomes red after you eat anything spicy, suspect rosacea. If your face becomes red when you are out in the sun suspect rosacea.
Rosacea affects both the males and the females and usually begins after the age 30. The condition is aggravated by several lifestyle and environmental factors such as eating hot, spicy foods, drinking alcohol and/or caffeine, exposure to the sun, rain, or wind, temperature changes and stress. Some medications such as ACE inhibitors are also linked with the development of the disease.
Its holistic treatment may therefore have to include a certain degree of therapy. Unhappily, lack of knowledge about rosacea can lead to serious complication while attempting to treat it. This is because it is often mistakenly thought to be acne and treated accordingly. The compounds used in addressing acne can seriously exacerbate acne rosacea symptoms.
The best possible hope for Rosacea patients is an early diagnose and treatment; the condition must be carefully controlled in order to prevent the appearance of rhinophema or teleangiectasie. A rapid treatment could also reverse the progression of the symptoms. In severe and late stages, Rosacea is still treatable but the results may vary and more specific methods must be applied
