Essential Tips to Control Your Rosacea Symptoms

Rosacea is a prevalent inflammatory condition that causes redness of the skin, more common in the central face region such as the cheeks, nose and forehead. Some other symptoms of rosacea include:

  • Swollen nose
  • Dry skin
  • Skin irritation
  • Impaired vision
  • Enlarged pores
  • Bulging Eyes
  • Eyelids bumps
  • Red, Bumpy Skin
  • Broken blood vessels on the face
  • Patches of rough, dry skin

In some cases, these lesions may appear in areas such as the ears, shoulders, neck and chest. Rosacea can sometimes be confused with other skin conditions.

Some types of rosacea are associated with red, pimple-like appendages that make it difficult to distinguish them from regular acne.

That’s why rosacea is called adult acne and may be misdiagnosed with acne Vulgaris.

Nasal involvement is more common in men than women. A fleshy, large, thick-skinned nose called Rhinophyma is one of the hallmarks of rosacea in men.

Who Is Prone to Rosacea?

The interesting thing about rosacea is that people with light and blond skin are more likely to get it. People with sensitive skin are also at risk.

That’s why if you have sensitive, light or blond skin, you need to be aware of the rosacea symptoms developing. Prevention is always better than cure.

In addition to light color and skin sensitivity, rosacea is more likely to occur in the following conditions:

  • Between 30 and 50 years old
  • People with blond hair and blue eyes
  • People of Celtic or Scandinavian descent
  • Individuals with a family history of rosacea or severe acne
  • Those who have previously experienced refractory acne

Gender Differences in Rosacea

Investigations show that females are more likely to get rosacea than males. This complication is more common in blond women, especially European ones. However, rosacea appears to be more severe in men than women.

The Cause of Rosacea

The definitive cause of rosacea is not known. However, researchers believe that many factors contribute to the onset or exacerbation of its symptoms. Here are some of these factors:

Abnormalities in the Blood Vessels

Some experts believe that abnormalities cause blood vessels to appear under the skin leading to redness and swelling in the central part of the skin. The factors involved here are still in an aura of ambiguity.


A bacteria referred to as Helicobacter pylori can affect your intestines and stomach. This microorganism has an effective role in serious complications, including acute upper GI bleeding and perforation.

On the other hand, Helicobacter pylori increases a digestive hormone called gastrin, which plays an important role in skin redness and hot flashes.

Immune System Dysfunction

Rosacea appears to be associated with immunodeficiency. People who have an overactive immune response may be more likely to get rosacea. For this reason, immunosuppressive drugs are prescribed in some severe stages of rosacea.

Family History

Rosacea is an inherited complication. Reports and research indicate that many people with rosacea have at least one relative suffering from the same condition.

Therefore, people with a family history of rosacea should eliminate other risk factors that make them more prone to rosacea.

Demodex Mites

Many studies confirm that people with rosacea have a high density of Demodex parasites.

There has been evidence of a direct link between rosacea and an increase in the density of Demodex, but it is still unclear which one causes or exacerbates the other.

In other words, it is still under investigation whether an increase in Demodex causes the onset and exacerbation of rosacea symptoms or vice versa.

The only definitive finding in this respect is that the high density of Demodex is effective in exacerbating the rosacea symptoms.

Therefore, measures such as applying natural antiparasitic products that eliminate Demodex may effectively control the symptoms.

Ungex products, especially SDT and PDT, can help you relieve your skin redness and inflammation by eliminating Demodex mites.

How to Control and Prevent Rosacea Flare Ups

However, though now, no definitive cure has been found for rosacea. Still, you can control the symptoms or prevent the flare ups by adhering to some simple tips.

Many rosacea risk factors such as family history, immune system disorders and light skin are not manageable, but you can still control other stakes.

For example, if you have Helicobacter pylori, reach out to a good specialist to get on top of it. Also, removing Demodex mites can help improve the symptoms of rosacea.

You can follow some lifestyle changes either to avoid rosacea recurrence. These lifestyle changes include:

Avoid Some Drinks

Hot drinks such as tea and spicy, caffeinated, and alcoholic beverages can aggravate rosacea symptoms. So, it is necessary to minimize their consumption.

Avoid Direct Sun Exposure

Sunlight – especially direct light on your skin when you’re outdoors- may harm your skin, making it red and inflamed. Therefore, you should minimize your exposure to direct sunlight.

Wearing a hat and carrying an umbrella can protect you from harmful rays. Furthermore, applying the right sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 will block 97 per cent of the sun’s UV rays.

Make sure to consult your dermatologist to find the best sunscreen. Also, kindly note that you should not use sunscreen if you are currently under Demodex mite treatment.

Sunscreens, like other toiletries, are good food for Demodex mites, helping them overgrow and eventually intensify rosacea.

Avoid Extreme Temperatures

Avoid staying in very hot or cold environments. Extreme temperatures can aggravate the symptoms of rosacea. Also, do not exercise in hot weather.

Try to train at a cool temperature and rinse your skin with cold water immediately after exercise. Beyond helping control the rosacea symptoms, it prevents Demodex mites’ growth, thus controlling your rosacea.

Avoiding Skin Irritants

Avoid skin irritants and actions that may aggravate the skin leading to inflammation, such as massaging, rubbing or scratching.

Although massage is beneficial in many cases, its inappropriate application may cause some sensitivities and skin irritations.

Furthermore, excessive use of detergents can irritate the skin and aggravate the symptoms of rosacea. Frequent and improper washing of the skin damages the skin barrier, which protects you from pathogen injuries.

Damaged skin is more prone to pathogenic microorganisms such as Demodex mites. Under these conditions, parasites get the chance to grow and aggravate your symptoms quickly.

To prevent skin irritation, wash your skin only when visibly dirty by applying a mild, natural cleanser.

DDC is a great choice for cleaning problemed skins. In addition to being quite gentle on the skin, unlike many other cleansers, this shampoo does not nourish Demodex.

So beyond disinfecting the skin, it helps you control your symptoms by keeping Demodex under control.

Avoid Inappropriate Cosmetics:

Usually, people with red skin tend to use cosmetics to cover their lessons. However, inappropriate and irritating beautifiers can worsen the condition. Dermatologists usually recommend mineral cosmetics.

However, one thing you should consider is that if your Demodex density is high, even mineral cosmetics can help the parasites grow.

The ingredients in these creams and powders are good food for the mites and encourage them to proliferate and increase.

Consequently, if the online Demodex diagnostic test shows a large population of Demodex, it is best not to use cosmetics during the treatment period.
