Roscea treatment service
Rosacea is a widespread chronic (long-term) skin condition that typically affects the cheeks, forehead, chin, and nose. Adults between the ages of 30 and 60, as well as people with fair complexion, are the most susceptible. It can be distressing for those who suffer from it, especially if it is a prolonged episode.
Rosacea is characterised by episodes of facial flushing or blushing that progress to more permanent skin redness. A burning or stinging feeling is frequently linked with this redness. Spots can appear in certain locations, and little blood vessels in the skin become more visible. Thickening of the skin around the nose (rhinophyma) and eye issues (dryness, redness, or grittiness) can occur in severe cases. Symptoms might vary greatly in terms of form and intensity.
Rosacea is a relapsing remitting' condition, which means it flares up at times and then settles down (remitting). Both of these phases have an unpredictably high frequency and duration. There are certain things you may take to manage your rosacea without resorting to medicine. You should:
- Wear a hat to shield your face from the sun.
- Avoid fragrant items on your skin (such as perfumed moisturisers and cleansers)
- Be careful with the skin on your face; do not scrub or rub it.
- Recognize and avoid your personal triggers (for example, alcohol, heat or spicy foods)
If medicine is required, mild to moderate symptoms are treated with lotions or gels, while more severe symptoms are treated with oral antibiotics. It is sometimes necessary to use a combination of these methods of treatment. The following drugs are available through this service:
- Rozex Gel (metronidazole gel 0.75%)
- Skinoren (azelaic Acid 15% gel)
- Soolantra (Ivermectin cream)
- Doxycycline (oral antibiotic tablet)
- Lymecycline (oral antibiotic tablet)
Some antibiotics are used to treat this problem. The advantage is thought to be due to the anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects of these drugs. It takes up to 3 weeks for any substantial improvement to appear, but it can take up to 12 weeks in other cases. Patients giving up before the treatment course has had a suitable amount of time to work is a typical cause of treatment failure. A 12-week treatment regimen is the most that can be done (3 months).
If your symptoms go away, there's a chance they'll come back over time, necessitating another round of treatment.
