Natural Remedies for Rosacea

Posted May 18 2009 10:36pm 2 Comments
Rosacea is a distressing inflammatory skin condition that commonly affects about 1 in 20 people and is common in adult women but can be severe in men. It is also known as Acne Rosacea as the condition is characterized by chronic acne like eruptions on the face with redness, spider veins, and facial flushing. Antibiotics can control the condition but many people are looking for natural remedies for Rosacea.

Although Rosacea usually affects the face it can appear on the neck and chest and even the eyes causing dryness, tearing, burning and swelling of the eye lids. In some cases the skin on the nose becomes thickened. It has a tendency to flare up when certain triggers cause the blood vessels in the face to expand although the exact cause is not known. Conventional Acne treatments may make the condition worse. Natural remedies include the use of diet, nutritional supplements and herbal creams.

Low stomach acid

Some studies have shown that sufferers have low gastric acid or decreased secretion of the enzyme lipase from the pancreas. Low gastric acid is associated with an overgrowth of bacteria in the stomach which may make the Rosacea flare. An infection of the bacteria Helicobacter pylori is thought to play a part in Rosacea although it is not considered to be the cause. People with low gastric acid who have taken hydrochloric acid supplements have noticed a vast improvement in their symptoms. Lack of lipase is treated with pancreatic supplements.

Food Triggers

The lack of protein digestion due to low gastric acid could lead to food intolerance which could trigger a flare up although some health practitioners state that food allergy is not a factor. Nevertheless some foods do appear to trigger a typical Rosacea flush. Coffee, alcohol, hot drinks and spicy foods are known triggers. Many sufferers are sensitive to changes of temperature, sun, wind and stress.

Vitamin B deficiency

Deficiency of Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) is common in Rosacea and taking large doses of B vitamins has been effective as a natural remedy for the condition. Researchers have found that a number of Rosacea sufferers were infected with the skin mite Demodex Folliculorum. Interestingly, in lab experiments researchers were only able to infect the skin of Vitamin B 2 deficient rats with the mite.

I have been suffering with the occasional redness on my face for a couple of years. My face would look like it was sunburned. I had to cover up with lots of heavy makeup and it felt awful. Finally made the appointment to see my doctor when I couldn't stand it anymore. 

The doctor gave me 2 different perscriptions for gels and ointments. They seemed to work but it took weeks to see any results and my face still had to be covered with makeup to hide the redness.  I bought Shielo's Complexion Moisturizer after reading some of the reviews and decided this would be cheaper than another doctor visit plus the cost of more of the same expensive creams. I gave it a shot. 

Boy, was I surprised. The burning stopped with the very first application and the redness was greatly reduced overnight. I no longer have the dryness that the other ointments caused. 

After just 2 or 3 days, my face was back to normal and even my husband was amazed at the quick improvement. Keeping it on hand for flare ups.
