Rosacea Topical Treatment

If you suffer from rosacea, you probably have tried a rosacea topical treatment in hope of relief. Or you may have tried another skin care product for rosacea, such as special soap or lotion. You may have even tried a combination of different products and still did not achieve the results you had hoped for. Most of those who suffer from rosacea experience frustration simply because finding the right treatment is difficult.

Rosacea is a chronic skin disorder that causes redness and swelling of the face. This disease affects an estimated 14 million people in North America alone. It is often not recognized because the symptoms resemble other disorders such as acne or sunburn. It is characterized by periods of flare-ups and remission.

Doctors aren't sure what causes rosacea, so there is no real cure. There are, however, ways to prevent and treat flare-ups.

Choosing the right skin care product for rosacea is important, however, before you begin searching for a rosacea topical treatment, you should learn how to prevent the symptoms from occurring. The following recommendations can help you avoid a flare up:

As we said earlier, there is no cure for rosacea. However, there are a number of treatments that can help.

A rosacea topical treatment such as antibiotic cream or lotion is often the first to be tried. If the topical antibiotic doesn't help, oral antibiotics may be prescribed. Topical antibiotics can be used long-term, but oral antibiotics cannot because a resistance to antibiotics can occur.

Laser therapy is sometimes used, but this is a harsh surgical treatment and can initially cause severe skin irritation. Treatment usually has to be repeated several times, and is not always helpful. Additionally, this treatment is very expensive and is not usually covered by insurance.

Because of the side effects and other problems from traditional treatments, and because they are not always effective, many people prefer to try a natural rosacea topical treatment.

We will now go over the product that we feel is the best skin care product for rosacea.

If you have symptoms of rosacea, see your doctor for diagnosis and treatment. Ask about a rosacea topical treatment or other type of skin care product for rosacea. Ask about alternative treatments, as well.
