Rosacea is a skin condition that causes redness and pimples on your nose, cheeks, chin, and forehead. It usually varies in severity, and is the only condition that is not related to your general health.
It affects over 14 million people in the United States alone, and most people with the condition don't even know that they have it.
People sometimes confuse rosacea with adult acne because it can cause outbreaks that look like acne, and can also cause burning and soreness in the eyes and eyelids.

Treatments for rosacea
There are several treatments for rosacea which include both conventional and alternative methods. Conventional medicines, such as Erythromycin, Tetracycline, and others treat the symptoms and provide temporary relief, but don't address the fundamental cause. Long term use of these drugs could be harmful to your skin and your liver and could also cause resistance to MRSA and other superbugs.
Many health care advisors believe it's best to use alternative treatments for rosacea which treat it from the inside as well as the outside of the body. Treatment from the inside will help detoxify and rebuild the body and prevent problems from coming back in the future.
