What is dermatitis called “rosacea”?

Definition and description of acne rosacea

Acne rosacea is a form of chronic, inflammatory condition ofvascular origin (dilation of blood vessels). The first symptoms of rosacea are redness and hot flashes on the face mainly on the T zone (cheeks, nose, forehead, chin). In some cases, it can progress with the presence of pustules on the face. The area around the eyes and mouth or the ears are often spared but it can nevertheless extend to the neck. There is also an ocular form that will require rehydration of the eye.

How do you know if you have acne rosacea? What distinguishes it from classic acne and who is affected?

Unlike classic acne, which is often associated with adolescence, acne rosacea generally occurs in adults, mainly affecting fair skin or skin prone to redness. Its unique symptoms, such as persistent redness and skin sensitivity, clearly distinguish acne rosacea from typical youth-related breakouts. What distinguishes it from classic acne? The absence of blackheads or whiteheads. Who is concerned ? Women are more predisposed but men can also be affected.

What is the difference with rosacea?

Acne rosacea and rosacea are often confused, but have key differences. While rosacea is mainly characterized by permanent redness which can even turn purplish and visible blood vessels on the face, acne rosacea can also include pimples, papules and more marked inflammation.


What causes rosacea? What foods to avoid if you have rosacea?

Genetic origin?

The causes The exact causes of acne rosacea remain incompletely elucidated to this day. Genetics also plays a major role in the occurrence of lesions, highlighting the complexity of its origins (light eyes, skin and hair). We also talk about failure of the skin microbiome.

Acne rosacea and sun exposure

Among the triggering factors mentioned for a rosacea flare-up, we also mention a hypersensitivity to heat and we first think of a reaction to exposure to the sun. Strong exposure will in fact cause sudden overheating of the epidermis. This is why it is strongly recommended to avoid excessively strong hours and to apply sufficient sunscreen to protect the skin.

What foods to avoid if you have rosacea? Is there a link between diet and skin problems?

To this question we will answer that yes, diet can play a role in favor or against your skin problems. The skin is one of the body's emunctory organs (after the liver, intestines, kidneys and lungs). Avoidance of foods too spicy is to be preferred. Excessive consumption of alcoholic beverages or drinks that are too hot could also cause the skin to overheat and worsen acne rosacea.

More generally, when the organs are overloaded, it is through the skin that toxins will be evacuated and therefore can aggravate or cause skin problems such as acne, eczema or psoriasis. A balanced diet, drainage and the consumption of medicinal plants can help, this is generally recommended in naturopathy. However, we would like to point out that a balanced diet is not sufficient to resolve a skin disease but can nevertheless contribute to its improvement.

Intense physical efforts

Likewise, pay attention to intense sports which, through effort, would damage the epidermis by causing sudden overheating and thus aggravate acne by increasing vascular dilation, especially in the face.

Other aggravating factors

The mild form can become more serious in the event of inflammation which can be caused by environmental factors or by the presence of Dermodex (a mite found on the epidermis).


Acne rosacea: how to treat it to get rid of it?

Symptoms of acne rosacea may improve with age. There is no solution to truly cure rosacea but there are remedies to treat the symptoms (redness, pustules).

Medicinal treatments or treatments prescribed by health professionals against acne rosacea

Acne rosacea, natural treatment and link with the pillDermatologists often recommend oral treatments or creams based on antibiotics (for example doxycycline, minocycline or erythromycin) or the application of topical corticosteroids to make the pustules associated with rosacea disappear.
Against redness and dilated vessels, laser sessions, pulsed light or electrocoagulation, can be carried out by a dermatologist. These sessions are not reimbursed by Social Security because they are considered for aesthetic purposes. Finally, as a last resort in the rarest cases, surgical intervention can be considered to restore a natural appearance to the skin.

Does stress/psychological state promote acne rosacea?

stress linked to acne and skin diseasesStress is often accused of aggravating or even being responsible for many ailments, particularly in the case of skin diseases. There is no real scientific link between stress and skin diseases. However, stress is recognized as an environmental element that can aggravate a skin disease or even trigger it.

For example, in the case of psoriasis, an autoimmune disease, the disease often occurs following stress or emotional shock. Stress is not the cause of illness but a trigger of it. You should know that stress can also trigger acne or eczema breakouts.

If you suffer from skin problems and are experiencing a period of stress, meditation, relaxation and practicing a sporting activity can help you overcome it.
