Hello,Customer You have rosacea.
Demodex folliculorum mites are a possible factor in the pathogenesis of rosacea along with genetic predisposition, gastrointestinal diseases, chronic gall bladder disease, and hypertension. D. folliculorum is an obligate parasite of humans that colonizes follicles of the head, neck, and upper trunk. http://dermatology.jwatch.org/cgi/content/full/1993/901/3
Also, Helicobacter pylori is associated with rosacea.
Triggering factors that exacerbate your rosacea should be identified and avoided if possible. Common triggering factors include hot or cold temperatures, wind, hot drinks, caffeine, exercise, spicy food, alcohol, emotions, topical products that irritate the skin and decrease the barrier, or medications that cause flushing.
A sunscreen that protects against both ultraviolet A and ultraviolet B light is recommended. Physical blockers such as titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are helpful. Also, the sunscreen should contain protective silicones such as dimethicone or cyclomethicone. Green tinted sunscreens can cover the redness.
Avoid astringents, toners, menthols, camphor, waterproof cosmetics requiring solvents to be removed, or products containing sodium lauryl sulfate.
Medications that reduce flushing including beta-blockers, clonidine, naloxone, ondansetron, and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors are helpful.
You should be examined and treated in person by a dermatologist so that he can prescribe the appropriate medications.
Vascular lasers are the mainstay of rosacea therapy.
