Acne Rosacea Treatment

Cure Acne ImageA Dermatologist can help you determine a treatment for Acne Rosacea that works for you.
Although the scientific and medical communities have not been able to pinpoint the exact causes of acne Rosacea, the “prime suspects” to susceptibility have been identified.

1) Fair Skin
2) Middle Aged
3) Genetic predisposition.

Whether or not you fall into these categories are of no consequence if you are seeking to rid yourself of this frustrating condition.  Don’t lose hope.  If you are suffering from acne Rosacea,  there are numerous effective  treatment options both traditional and alternative that you can discuss with your dermatologist and begin your course of action today.

First… the most common treatment approach your dermatologist will take will be to prescribe Antibiotics as the first line of attack in acne Rosacea treatment.

For your information, common oral antibiotics are:

Antibiotics for rosacea


Oral antibiotics

Generic Name Brand Name
doxycycline Doryx, Oracea, Vibramycin
erythromycin E-Mycin
minocycline Minocin
tetracycline Bristacycline, Sumycin
trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole Bactrim, Septra

Topical antibiotics

Generic Name Brand Name
metronidazole MetroCream 0.75%, MetroGel, Noritate 1%

These antibiotics are prescribed to reduce skin inflammation overall. They may also actually reduce the number of pimples as well as the amount of redness around the pimples.

Retin A ™ (Tretinoin) is a topical form of vitamin A that basically helps the skin renew itself.  Retin A is the most commonly prescribed topical cream or gel that is used to treat mild to moderately severe acne, and is especially effective for those with comedonal acne (many blackheads and whiteheads). Retin-A is available by prescription only in cream or gel form and is also known as Retin-A Micro, Avita, Renova, and generic tretinoin.
Retin-A has developed quite a following among acne sufferers and has become, for many, the treatment of choice.  This is due to its other advantageous uses and benefits such as the ability to reduce the look of dark spots, discoloration and the ability to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

Alternative Solutions for Acne Rosacea Treatment
Diet can help control acne Rosacea.
Studies have shown that Azelaic acid has demonstrated clinical effectiveness in treating acne Rosacea.  Azelaic is an antibacterial agent with anti- inflammation properties commonly used for the treatment of various skin conditions, including acne and rosacea.  Azelaic acid topical treatments come in a cream (20% of the acid), or the gel, (15% of the acid) but are also found naturally in wheat, rye and barley.

Herbal acne Rosacea treatments as well as blood cleansers in particular can be extremely effective.  Again, there is as yet no scientific proof as to how effective these herbal remedies are but many sufferers swear by these remedies including burdock root and red clover blossoms and cleavers.  These tonic herbs have been used throughout history to treat skin conditions.
Vitamin B complex is the treatment of choice for many acne rosacea sufferers although this could be misguided.  According to a paper by Lit-Hung Leung, M.D. published in 1997 titled “Pantothenic Acid in the Treatment of Acne Vulgaris”
He states, “there are reports showing that acne may be induced by administration of large doses of vitamin B12 alone or in combination with B6. Cessation of the administration of these vitamins will bring a halt to the acne eruptions.”

Another “home” remedy for treating acne rosacea has been sun exposure. Although a limited amount of sun exposure may improve the appearance acne, most dermatological professionals will caution against using sun exposure as a way to treat acne due to the many negative effects to overexposure.  The short term benefit may have many long term detrimental effects.
The most common short-term effect of unprotected exposure to UV rays of the sun is sunburn which will increase your risk of developing skin cancer.  In fact, any UV exposure can cause long term damage to the skin including premature changes to the skin such as:

* Loss of elasticity
* Wrinkles
* Age spots
* Actinic keratoses (rough, scaly spots that can sometimes lead to cancer)

In the case of sun exposure for treatment of acne rosacea, BE CAREFUL — the cure may be worse than the disease.
