Acne Rosacea

by William Davey

 

Rosacea is a common skin disease in the United States with millions of individuals being affected. Patients are usually between 30 and 50 years old at the onset. The typical patient has fair skin, blonde hair and blue eyes with a Celtic or Scandinavian background. Women may develop rosacea during menopause.

 

Patients with rosacea commonly have redness on the nose and cheeks that can spread to the chin, forehead and ears. The patient will have acne breakouts similar to acne vulgaris (common acne). The skin can feel oily, sore and may have burning or stinging. There are thin reddish purple veins present. Some patients may have involvement in their eyes. In this case there are bloodshot eyes which are dry, itchy and irritated. There may be a gritty feeling in the eyes.

 

There are common rosacea triggers which seem to be related to heating of the skin. Sun exposure can be avoided by using the shade, wearing sun protective clothing and applying a nonirritating broad spectrum sunscreen (with UVA and UVB protection). Common food and drink triggers are spicy foods, caffeine, alcohol and hot temperature drinks. Exercise can worsen rosacea so do so in a cool environment. A simple skin care regiment that avoids rubbing, scrubbing, massaging or using skin care products that contain alcohol works best to prevent worsening rosacea.

 

Rosacea treatment is designed to reduce the inflammation in the skin and the blood vessels present. Tetracyclines like minocycline and doxycycline are the most effective oral medications. Metronidazole is the most effective topical medication. Patients should avoid topical steroids which can give an immediate quick fix but create long term problems. Once the inflammation is under control the blood vessels can be treated.  Using a pulse-dye laser is the most effective device. Recently a temporary topical treatment for the redness, Mirvaso, is being used to close the offending blood vessels and decrease the redness with success.
