Rosacea is a common skin disease among 14 million Americans and 2 million Canadians. Its onset is gradual and it usually occurs during mid-adulthood, causing acne like inflammation and manifesting itself into pustules, papules and red patches on the face. Those who are most likely to develop Rosacea are persons of Celtic origin with fair complexions. Although Rosacea is more common among women, men with Rosacea experience a greater severity of the skin disease. The cause of Rosacea is relatively unknown.
Although there is no cure for Rosacea there are certain lifestyle adjustments that can be made:
Many skin care treatments can be used to calm Rosacea and help prevent flare-ups. A good skin care regime is of utmost importance. Choosing gentle, hydrating products containing anti-inflammatory ingredients such as bisabolol or esculin can aid in soothing, calming and cooling Rosacea type skin. For more severe cases of Rosacea one should seek the advice of a medical doctor for prescription medications. Alternative methods of treatment include laser treatment, electrosurgery and intense pulsed light.
