Homeopathic Remedies for Acne Rosacea

Acne Rosacea is a skin condition affecting the face characterized by marked redness or the flushing of face followed by appearance of acne/pimples. The skin of the mid-forehead, nose, cheeks, and chin are the most affected parts. As the condition advances, the blood vessels over the face get dilated, and become visible. If the condition continues unabated, connective tissue grows around the blood vessels, and it results in thickening of the skin. Nodules are formed, especially, on the nose, and it gets enlarged. In the more complicated cases, there is redness, itching, and watering from the eyes.

Homeopathy promises great results in cases of Acne Rosacea. Homeopathic medicines greatly help control signs and symptoms of Rosacea. Not only does it help in reducing frequency of flare ups, and intensity of its symptom but also helps in complete cure if taken regularly for a few months as suggested by the physician.

The signs, and symptoms vary from person to person and at a given time not all signs, and symptoms may be apparent.

Areas Affected

1. Face: The mid part of the face is typically affected including forehead, nose, medial cheeks (towards nose side) and chin.

2. Areas other than face: In some cases, signs, and symptoms may go beyond face including chest, scalp, neck, ears and upper back.

Following are the Signs & Symptoms:

1. Flushing (Redness) of Face: Facial flushing, and redness is often the first sign of rosacea. It affects the mid part of the face and appears symmetrically. The redness may tend to come and go or may persist.

2. Visible Blood Vessels: The small, and dilated blood vessels on the face may be visible.

3. Pimples on the Face: There may be presence of red bumps on the face called papules or pus-filled bumps called pustules.

4. Burning and stinging on the face and itching at times. The skin area involved may be hot, and painful to touch (tender)

5. Facial Swelling: It may occur alone or along with other signs and symptoms.

6. Dryness, Roughness & Scaling Of Facial Skin: In some cases, thickening of skin can be present.

7. Nasal Enlargement: with the progression of the condition the skin of the nose may thicken leading to its bulbous condition known as rhinophyma. It is common in women as compared to men.

8. Ocular Rosacea: Redness of eyes, dryness, burning, stinging, grittiness, itching in eyes, watery eyes, light sensitivity, blurred vision.

Types of Acne Rosacea

1. Erythematotelengiectatic Rosacea (ETR): In this, there occurs redness (erythema), and flushing. With this, tiny widened blood vessels are seen on the skin surface (telangiectasias). Itching, burning, and stinging are usually seen along with the above features.  Other than the face, involvement of neck, chest, ears, scalp and upper back may be seen.

2. Papulopustular rosacea: Here facial redness is accompanied by red eruptions (papules) or pus-filled bumps (pustules). Mostly middle-aged women are seen to be affected with this problem.

3. Rhinophyma: It is a rare problem in which there occurs enlargement of nose (rhinophyma). The skin of nose gets thickened with irregular nodes (lumps) and an accompanied enlargement. It is mostly seen in men.

4. Ocular rosacea: This type of Acne Rosaceaaffects eyes. The eyes appear red and there may occur dryness, gritty sensation, itching, burning stinging or irritation in eye. Sensitivity to light may also accompany. If cornea is affected, vision may get blurred and vision loss may occur.

Causes Behind Acne Rosacea

The exact cause behind Acne Rosacea is not clear yet. However, it is thought that hereditary, and environmental factors collectively play a role.

Some of the factors that may worsen Acne Rosacea symptoms as follows:

1. Certain Food and drinks: Drinking tea, hot coffee, caffeinated beverages, alcohol, eating spicy food, chocolates, tomatoes, food having cinnamon

2. Extreme of temperature, heat of sun

3. Excessive exercise

4. Stress and anxiety

5. Use of Topical Steroids (steroid-induced rosacea) and certain treatments for acne, and wrinkles removal like chemical peels, microdermabrasion and also isotretinoin and benzoyl peroxide

6. Excessive Cosmetic Use

7. Demodex Mites: It has been found that some persons suffering from rosacea have increased demodex mites. In a study, it has been revealed that mites demodex folliculorum may be a triggering factor for Rosacea. A bacteria Bacillus oleronius present in these mites leads to inflammation of Acne Rosacea as well as papules and pustules.

8. Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO): It is found that SIBO is more prevalent in persons having Acne Rosacea which suggests that the gut bacteria may be involved in causing lesions of Rosacea.

9. Increased Cathelicidin & Stratum Corneum Tryptic Enzymes

10. Hpylori Bacteria In the Gut: It can increase gastrin (digestive hormone) that may cause flushing of skin.

Risk factors

1. Age: Persons between 30 and 50-year-old are at the highest risk

2. Women are more at risk compared to men though it can occur among men

3. Fair-skinned people are more prone

4. Family history of Acne Rosacea

  12. Michelle Strayer says:

    I battle rosacea with acne which I don’t think is actually acne but bumps that ooze and very dry flaky skin around my cheeks nose and mouth. I get bumps in those areas that are very uncomfortable.
    the dermatologists want me to take antibiotics and use a steroid cream which I don’t want to use so I am looking at alternative solutions. My face is red but that isn’t my biggest concern. I am most concerned with the flaky skin, oozy postules and overall discomfort of those.
