Oral and topical medications for treating Rosacea

If you suffer from Rosacea, you will understand the deep and life altering impact that this skin disorder can have on you. Rosacea creates redness, scaring and imperfections on the face, but it can also gradually erode your emotional well being by damaging your self-esteem, lowering your confidence and generally wreaking havoc on your life. But take heart - there are a number of highly effective treatments for Rosacea available on the market. Rosacea is a skin condition that causes blood vessels to expand and dilate close to the surface of the skin, creating a flushed and red appearance in the facial region. Red bumps, broken capillaries and red patches cause an unsightly and uneven skin surface and can create long term scarring and an uneven skin texture.

There are a number of oral and topical medications for treating Rosacea including:

  • Antibiotics
  • Natural Remedies
  • Skin Cream Systems
  • Microdermabrasion
  • Holistic Approaches
  • Antibiotics

Treating Rosacea with Antibiotics

According to the European, American and Australasian Dermatological Associations and the American National Rosacea Society, environment factors are commonly identified as core Rosacea causes and triggers. The following factors are thought to be linked to flare ups:

  • Emotional Stress
  • Sun Exposure and Sunburn
  • Spicy Food
  • Alcohol
  • Wind
  • Cold Weather
  • Intensive exercise

Antibiotics are the strongest and most effective oral and topical medications for treating Rosacea. It is widely assumed by skin experts that the anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial effects of oral antibiotics reduce swelling in the capillaries and fight bacteria that may cause redness, irritation, pimples and bumps. If you suffer from Rosacea it is a good idea to seek a consultation with a dermatologist. The dermatologist may prescribe you with an antibiotic such as tetracycline, minocycline or doxycycline. After you have taken a course of these antibiotics, you may be given a topical treatment such as metronidazole. It is very important to seek medical help for your specific case because Rosacea requires an individualized treatment approach.

Natural Remedies for Rosacea

Some people decide to see a naturopath in order to treat their Rosacea. A naturopath will have a diverse array of oral and topical medications for treating Rosacea. A naturopath will take a holistic approach to treatment and suggest changes in your diet as well as analyzing the lifestyle and emotional triggers that may be connected to your disorder. There are several herbal products that treat Rosacea and many excellent skin care systems, such as ZENMED, incorporate natural herbal ingredients in order to gain the maximum benefits possible. Herbs such as aloe vera have cooling and calming properties and can sooth the skin and reduce redness and irritation.

A naturopath may suggest acupuncture as part of the treatment plan. Acupuncture can help to address the emotional and psychological imbalances that may contribute to Rosacea and ensure that you remain calm and peaceful. There are Rosacea diets that you can follow in order to avoid your exposure to chemicals, pesticides, additives and triggers such as spicy food. A whole food, plant based and organic diet rich in anti-oxidants can dramatically reduce the frequency of your Rosacea flare-ups.

Skin Cream Treatment Systems for Rosacea

There are a number of oral and topical medications for treating Rosacea, however, skin cream systems can be effective in caring for and nurturing sensitive skin.

Microdermabrasion should form the cornerstone of your skin care treatment regime. Of all of the oral and topical medications for treating Rosacea available, microdermabrasion is thought to be most effective in improving the appearance of the skin and treating surface scarring and redness. If you skin is afflicted with this terrible disorder you must ensure that you invest in high quality creams and lotions that nurture and support your delicate facial zone. It is vital to take care of your skin because as a Rosacea sufferer you are much more vulnerable to damage and long term scarring and thickening of the skin surface. A good skin care system has the power to vividly and dramatically improve the condition, tone and texture of your skin and reduce redness, swelling and imperfections.

Holistic Approaches to Rosacea Therapy

Choosing several oral and topical medications for treating Rosacea is called a holistic approach. The latest Rosacea research consistently indicates that by combining a range of strong and effective treatment methods you greatly increase your chances of seeing real and continuing improvement. By focusing on your diet, consulting with a dermatologist and using a skincare system designed specifically for Rosacea sufferers, you are well on your way to preventing Rosacea outbreaks and effectively managing and controlling your skin disorder.
