Rosacea is a pesky and often embarrassing problem. However, there are measures which can reduce or treat symptoms. A diet free of spicy and oily foods has been found to be helpful in preventing the condition.
Avoiding warm places, reducing sun exposure, and controlling the use of drugs that contain rosacea-triggering active ingredients can lessen the chances of skin inflammation. In addition, limited alcohol consumption and decreased levels of stress and anger can fend off rosacea symptoms.
Hereditary and environmental factors that cause rosacea may also be identified by a dermatologist.
If a person is diagnosed with rosacea, the best treatments are:
• Laser treatment: This is a very effective procedure in reducing swelling, redness, and flushing on the cheeks and nose.
• Rosacea lotions: These lotions provide a topical solution for those who do not choose laser treatment. Rosacea lotions are different from regular anti-acne products, which may worsen the condition of skin affected by rosacea.
