How to treat Rosacea?
Who doesn't like a nice pink blush on the cheeks of a young girl or boy? But, unfortunately, sometimes a blush, at first glance, blush can mean the onset of a serious and very unpleasant disease, which is called rosacea or, as they are called in everyday life, rosacea.
Rosacea is a disease of the upper layers of the epidermis of the face, which is accompanied by severe reddening, and, over time, acne, acne and purulent acne can appear, and the blood vessels are disturbed, which can be accompanied by blueing and even coarsening of the skin.
The first doctor who noted the presence of such a disease in people was Thomas Bateman, it happened relatively recently, at the beginning of the XIX century. In his note on this deviation, he indicated that it was not “wine acne” at all, as it was customary to consider in France before, redness does not appear at all from alcohol, however, the official reasons were never established.
In the 20th century, folk healers began to offer various options,which could induce the occurrence of such a disease, however, the only thing that established: rosacea can be inherited.
Modern medicine has not yet been able to establish the exact causes of such a disease, however, scientists still could find ways to treat rosacea on the face.
It is worth noting that the disease itself is of a chronic type, therefore, having improved its appearance, over time, relapses are possible, and treatment will have to be resumed again.
Statistics have established that the disease can occur in approximately 10% of the entire terrestrial population, with rosacea in women occur much more often than in men, although the latter acquire much faster complications of the disease.
Rosacea, most often, occurs in people over 30 years old, the most predisposing age is 40-50 years. It was also found that rosacea occurs most often in light-skinned people with red and blond hair, as well as blue eyes.
Possible risk factors and main symptoms of the disease
Rosacea is a rather insidious disease, which does not manifest itself immediately, at first, a person does not even realize that he may be sick.A light blush that periodically occurs under the influence of certain factors, such as intensely spicy foods, hot drinks, nervous shocks or mood swings, anger or alcohol, disappears each time.
It does not even occur to a person that these may be the first symptoms of such a disease, in the period of such an initial stage it is difficult to determine that it is really rosacea, only by an experienced specialist dermatologist. Over time, the reddening ceases to disappear, some parts of the face acquire a bright red color, which does not disappear at all, and, after some more time, rashes begin to form in their place.
Most often, the disease is divided into three main stages, each of which is accompanied by its characteristic symptoms. At the first stage, for no apparent reason, there are reddening in the area of the cheeks, forehead, part of the nose and sometimes in the decollete zone.
Over time, such “bouts” of redness increase, transform into persistent purple spots that become bluish after a certain period of time, may even cause slight swelling of the face, which is explained by the defeat of the superficial veins.
In the second stage, pimples and acne emerge on the same crimson places, the skin becomes extremely sensitive to sunlight, and the pustules gradually sprinkle all the skin of the face, can go over to the chest and scalp, accompanied by itching.
At the third stage, there is a thickening of certain areas of the skin, which is covered with grooves and hollows, resembling coarse orange skin. Sometimes in the process of such a disease, eye damage may occur: redness, dryness and a constant sensation of sand appear. What was the cause of such an unpleasant illness?
In this question, experts still have not found a general answer, while only factors that may become possible risk factors are known:
- Diseases of the gastrointestinal tract (mainly gastritis);
- There is a separate type of this disease - steroid rosacea, which, according to experts, can occur under the influence of corticosteroid ointments, which are sometimes prescribed in the treatment of skin diseases;
- Disorders in the endocrine system (menopause, diabetes mellitus);
- Disorders in the nervous system.For a long time, it was believed that it was mental disorders that were the main cause of rosacea, although modern studies have not confirmed this.
There is also the opinion that the reddening and rash on the face is the result of the activity of the tick of the Demodex family, with the treatment aimed at its destruction, there are always significant improvements. However, there is also such an opinion - that the appearance of such subcutaneous ticks is only a consequence of rhodacea, and, as is well known, in order to achieve a real result, it is necessary to treat the root cause.
Also, experts are convinced that the development of such a disease has not been without viruses and bacteria, as with the appointment of antibacterial ointments, creams and other drugs, the rash decreases, and the patient feels a little better.
