Apple Cider Vinegar as a Rosacea Treatment

The itching associated with rosacea can be quite annoying, added to the fact that the more you scratch the redder and more inflamed your skin will become. The sensation that triggers the urge to scratch is rooted within our immune system. When the skin identifies an intrusion or attack on the skin’s surface, our immune system is stimulated to a response. It rushes anti-bodies through the blood to the area of intrusion. This is what we observe as a reddened raised patch or area on the skin. The body is trying to protect the internal organs. That being said, it doesn’t solve the fact that the itches, it’s red and uncomfortable.

Papules may appear alone or but more often occur in groups of two or more within the rash. A papule is a lesion formed as part of our body’s immune defense system.

Asking the Important Questions About your Rosacea Treatment

Every once in a while, it’s a good idea to review your rosacea treatment portfolio and be sure it’s still the right treatment choice for you and your current rosacea condition. Are your reasons for using you rosacea treatment compatible with the results you are seeing?

We all want to jump onto the next ‘new’ treatment we see advertised but sometimes we need to stop and ask ourselves – why. What results were you expecting with your current treatment and did that treatment produce those results? If not – why. It can be helpful to go back and review the instructions for use and consider how you yourself are using that treatment. It is possible that there is a better or more beneficial way to use it? Is your rosacea treatment even recommended for the treatment of your rosacea symptoms?

If your rosacea treatment regimen isn’t producing the […]

Dry Skin in Winter

Along with the cooler temperatures and winter weather come problems dealing with dry skin and eczema. Where in the country you live can affect how you approach treating dry skin. Winter in most areas brings cooler, dryer air and an increase in indoor heating all of which combine to create dry, flaky and itchy skin due to moisture loss.

No matter where you live, keeping the body and skin well hydrated in paramount in combating temperatures extremes. While a hot shower or bath can sound so relaxing, it strips the skin of its protective moisture barrier and the itching and irritation that may follow will be anything but relaxing. So the rule here is to take short, warm showers and pat the skin dry afterwards.

Each particular area of the country experiences its own weather climate and special needs. In the south portions of the […]

Childhood Rosacea

Can the symptoms of rosacea be present in childhood? If one were to believe in a genetic marker or genetic predisposition for rosacea, then the answer would be yes. Do you ever observe your child outside at play and notice a red, blotchy appearance on their cheeks and face and worry this could be an early onset rosacea? Or you notice your child’s facial area becomes flushed with the heat or cold. While it is possible that symptoms of a rosacea like predisposition could be present in children, it is also possible to change these traits that have produced the appearance of the predisposition or early onset rosacea-like condition.

Often these flushed facial traits occur when children are excited or overly stimulated by outdoor activities. When children get involved in outdoor activities, they often forget or in some cases were never taught to drink plenty of water, to […]

Neck Rosacea

In some instances rosacea can migrate from the facial area to the neck and upper front of the chest area. The affected skin may appear red, blotchy or even appear sun burnt. In most cases the symptoms of neck rosacea are limited to flushing, itching, possible dryness and a sensation of burning or heat in the affected area.

The causes of neck rosacea can be the same as facial rosacea but may also be the result of perfumes or sprays that come in contact with the skin of the neck or upper chest. Even deodorant or perfumed soaps and cleansing bars may cause dryness, redness and irritation.
