Rosacea is a condition where the area of the cheeks, nose, chin, forehead, or eyelids become inflamed. It is a chronic skin disorder that can cause redness, prominent blood vessels, swelling, or skin eruptions similar to acne. Rosacea occurs most often in fair skinned people, particularly those who blush easily. It is more common in women.

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition involving inflammation of the cheeks, nose, chin, forehead, or eyelids. It may appear as redness, prominent spider-like blood vessels, swelling, or skin eruptions similar to acne.

Symptoms:

  1. Redness of the face in discrete areas or covering the entire face

  2. A tendency to flush or blush easily

  3. Increased vascularity (spider-like blood vessels called telangiectasia) of the face

  4. A red, bulbous nose

  5. Acne-like skin eruptions (may ooze or crust)

  6. A burning or stinging sensation of the face

  7. Irritated, bloodshot, watery eyes

Treatment

There is no known cure for rosacea. Here at Skin By Char the goal is to identify and avoid possible triggers, and thus reduce flare-ups. In fact, the National Rosacea Society strongly recommends that you keep a symptom diary to identify the specific triggers you may have. As you keep track of your symptoms, you should start to see a pattern within several weeks of what makes your rosacea worse. Use this information to avoid future flare-ups.

Here are some steps that may help:

  1. Avoid sun exposure. Use sunscreen every day.

  2. Avoid prolonged exertion in hot weather.

  3. Try to reduce stress. Try deep breathing, yoga, or other relaxation techniques.

  4. Limit spicy foods, alcohol, and hot beverages.

Triggers vary from person to person. Other triggers may include wind, hot baths, cold weather, specific skin products, exercise, or other factors.

Oral antibiotics (such as tetracycline, minocycline, or doxycycline) or topical antibiotics (like metronidazole) applied to your face may control skin eruptions. Other medications (isoretinol or Accutane), which are similar to vitamin A, are stronger alternatives that your doctor or dermatologist might consider.

In severe cases, laser surgery may help reduce the redness. Surgical reduction of enlarged nose tissue may also improve your appearance, if you so choose.

Causes:

Although the cause of rosacea is unknown, you are more likely to develop this harmless skin condition if:

  1. You are fair skinned.

  2. You blush easily.

  3. You are a woman. However, men are usually more severely affected.

  4. You are between the ages of 30 and 50.

Rosacea involves enlargement of the blood vessels just under the skin and may be associated with other skin disorders

(acne vulgaris, seborrhea) or eye disorders (blepharitis, keratitis.)

Tests & diagnosis

Your physician can usually diagnose rosacea with a thorough medical history and physical exam.

Prognosis

Rosacea is not medically dangerous. It is not curable, but can usually be controlled with treatment. It may be persistent and chronic.

Complications:

  1. Permanent changes in appearance (for example, a bulbous nose)

  2. Psychological damage, loss of self esteem

Change your diet

1. Aid Your Stomach. Start with 600 mg of hydrochloric acid with each meal, because many people with rosacea don't produce enough of this acid in their stomachs. A lack of hydrochloric acid kicks off a chain reaction that can result in redness and flushing. You can buy hydrochloric acid at natural food stores. Reduce your dose by half if your skin clears or if you have stomach discomfort. Since supplementing helps your body produce more of its own hydrochloric acid, after three or four months you should no longer need to take hydrochloric acid supplements.


2. Eat Beneficial Fats. Consume foods rich in omega-3 essential fatty acids, which can calm rosacea-related inflammation. Aim for four servings per week of cold-water fish like halibut, herring, mackerel, salmon, and sardines. Or, if you are vegetarian, take 1 tablespoon of flaxseed oil daily by the spoonful or drizzled on salads. If you don't see improvement in two to three months, take enzyme supplements rich in lipase. Many people with rosacea have a deficiency in this enzyme that helps digest omega-3 and other fats. You can stop taking the enzymes when your skin clears, but continue consuming the fish or flaxseed oil. If your skin begins to flare up again, start taking the enzymes.
