Modern Therapy of Rosacea


Visitors: 365

All patients with potential signs and symptoms of a Rosacea condition must immediately se dermatologist to prevent complications like rhinophyma or teleangiectasie and even to reverse progression in early stages. Left untreated, Rosacea gets worse and becomes harder to treat and keep under control. Even persons with advanced forms of Rosacea should keep their faith as rhinophyma and teleangiectasie can be improved by laser and plastic surgery therapies.

Rosacea cannot be cured but there are plenty of methods to improve the condition and prevent it from becoming worse. About 87% of the cases can be controlled with proper treatment; the availability of ways to care for Rosacea varies from oral and topical antibiotics for avoiding papules and pustules and laser therapy or surgery to treat rhinophyma and teleangiectasie. Very often, a combination of therapy ways is chosen to ensure a faster recovery; most often oral antibiotics are combined with topical ones for a both systemic and local effect.

The most commonly local therapy used for keeping papules and pustules under control are Azelaic acid, Benzoyl peroxide, Clindamycin, Erythromycin, Metronidazole, Sulfacetamide and other sulfur lotions. All products for topical use must be prescribed or approved by the curing physician and not taken at random like some patients might prefer. Even skin care products must be shown to the dermatologists as some may even be important triggers of the condition.

Most often prescribed oral antibiotics for treating Rosacea pimps are Doxycycline, erythromycin, Minocycline, tetracycline and sometimes Glycolic acid to gain rapid control over Rosacea. It is contained in products like the following ones and is used usually in combinations with antibiotics:
1. Glycolic acid peels applied and kept on the face for about 5 minutes. They must be given every 2-4 weeks and tend to turn the skin red for few minutes so the patient must avoid sun until the skin regains its normal color.
2. Glycolic acid washes and creams are used in low concentrations to increase the peeling effect.

More severe cases of Rosacea are treated with the usage of Isotrentinoin that shrinks the thickened skin and decreases the number of Rosacea pimps. It can have major and dangerous side-effects so only some particular patients can become users of the product.

Eyelids can also be affected and should be cleaned with baby shampoo to diminish inflammation. Warm to hot water compresses must be additional therapy in such cases. Oral antibiotics used for caring for eye problems are Doxycycline, Minocycline and Tetracycline.
