Five Things You May Not Know About Rosacea

Rosacea is not just a condition affecting those of Eastern European decent. It was once believed that rosacea only occurred in people with lighter skin tones. And while the majority of diagnosed rosacea sufferers may still fit this category, there are a rising number of people of Asian, Middle Eastern and African decent being diagnosed with symptoms of rosacea. The reason for this may be related to the spread of western diet to other countries and as countries become more industrialized there is an increased in stress related conditions and pollution all of which contribute to rosacea symptoms.

Rosacea partially results from a triggered immune system response. Our immune system triggers antibodies which rush through the blood stream to the skin’s surface to secure and protect the internal organs from any perceived attack on the body. Anything that comes in contact with our skin’s surface has the potential to […]

A fully Integrated Rosacea Solution

In the successful treatment of rosacea, a total systems approach is more often associated with a fully integrated rosacea solution – one that includes the implementation of entire concept of cause and effect rather than relatively uncoordinated approach of systems and components. The first step is to identify your rosacea symptoms and determine the severity of those symptoms and make a note of any circumstances or triggers that might cause the symptoms to flare or suddenly worsen. If you are fairly new to rosacea, there are several sources that identify some of the more culprits of rosacea triggers and flares. Once you have identified a trigger that inflames or worsens your rosacea, you can determine if it is possible to avoid that circumstance or if it can’t be avoided, start looking for ways to minimize its impact on your skin.

One method that has proven quite successful […]

Rosacea Symptoms

Rosacea symptoms can be vague at times. They’ve often been described as someone who blushes or flushes easily in embarrassing or stressful situations. That could apply to almost everyone. So what sets rosacea apart? The flushing may last longer for someone with rosacea, the facial redness more intense and it may not always be initiated by a single event or situation. Some say rosacea looks like a sunburn and we all have met those people who love to comment and bring attention to the redness with some usually loud comment about the redness on your face and this only serves to make the matter worse.

Rosacea may appear not so much as a sunburnt appearance but as a pattern of little tiny lines or visible blood veins as fine as a spider’s web across the cheeks and nose. In times of stress, heat, fatigue or as part of your […]

Analyzing Rosacea

Rosacea is considered to be among the top ten skin conditions affecting adults. Other skin conditions in this top 10 group include cold sores, hives, skin tags, eczema, psoriasis, age spots, moles, athlete’s foot fungus, and shingles.

Rosacea is primarily a facial skin condition resulting in periods of remission and flares in symptoms. The symptoms include a flushed, or pinkish to reddish colored rash usually occurring on the central area of the face which includes the nose, cheeks, forehead and chin. One may experience pimples or small red bumps called papules. Some describe their rosacea rash as appearing as fine thin red lines consisting of tiny broken blood vessels. Others describe their redness as looking like a sunburn. Rosacea for others can appear as patches of redness or blotchiness on the face.

Rosacea is considered a facial skin condition; it can also affect the upper chest, ears, neck and eyes. Skin […]

This is an absolute miracle!! After using the Rosacea Ltd.-III, the very next morning there was a visable difference in my complexion. Considering that I had a horrible rebound reaction from discontinuing the steroid cream I had been using, it was truly amazing. The Minocycline also helped clear that but starting the Rosacea Ltd-III was the answer. I was certainly not a good candidate for long term treatment with antibiotics and steroids so […]

Rosacea Triggers

Just as no two people are alike; no two people will react in exactly the same way to those things that trigger rosacea. Our rosacea trigger response is based on many variables such as what medications we have used on the recent past or perhaps may still be using, how we handle stress, how dehydrated our skin is, if our immune system is compromised to the degree that we also are affected by allergens, how much sleep we routinely have or any changes in any one of the above variables.

Any of these rosacea triggers can act as a stimulus to activate our rosacea response. The rosacea skin response once activated will display symptoms of redness, flushing, itching, bumps under the skin in the form of papules or pustules, acne pimples, inflammation or swelling of the facial skin. In most cases the rosacea response is limited to the […]

Stage Two – Moderate Rosacea

As rosacea progresses from mild to moderate all aspects of rosacea symptoms intensify and become more frequent and as they occur last longer. The facial redness may persist for days to weeks at a time before gradually becoming slightly less intense. For the most part the central facial areas will take on a constant appearance of redness which may appear in blotchy patches or as a centralized burn on the cheeks, nose and forehead. It’s usually at this stage that one begins to experience episodes of pimple and papule breakouts. The pimples are similar in appearance to common acne pimples and the papules are areas of red bumps which do not contain pus. These red bumps can vary in size from quite tiny dots to the size of the tip of your pinky finger. You may begin to notice more lasting damage to the blood vessels as they begin […]
