About Rosacea

Rosacea is a common chronic inflammatory acne-like disorder of the pilosebaceious units of the face along with increased reactivity of the capillaries leading to flushing and telangiectasia. Stage I involves persistent redness with telangiectases. Stage II involves persistent redness, telangiectases, papules, and tiny pustules. Stage III involves persistent deep redness, dense telangiectases, papules, pustules, nodules, and can progress to sebaceous hyperplasia causing disfigurement of the nose, forehead, eyelids, ears, and chin. The eyes can become involved and be characterized by chronic blepharitis, conjunctivitis, and episclaritis.

Treatments: My Approach

My holistic treatment approach to rosacea involves reducing inflammation, balancing the immune system, and balancing the body’s ecology through diet, herbs, supplements, topical formulations, lifestyle modifications, and medications.
