Acne rosacea treatment

The successful treatment for rosacea usually results in control rather than eradication. It is important to be aware of and avoid aggravating agents such as, caffeinated and alcoholic beverages, spicy foods, hot liquids, excessive exposure to sunlight, heat and cold.
Antibiotics used in acne rosacea treatment are azithromycin, tetracycline, minocycline, quinolone, macrolide, doxycycline, and clindamycin. Oral tetracycline is the preferred treatment for papular or pustular lesions, the dosage is generally 250 mg every 6 hours for the first 3 to 4 weeks, followed by a decrease in dosage based on clinical response. Doxycycline and minocycline are also effective and have the advantage of less frequent dosage thus avoiding concerns with gastrointestinal absorption. Some patients that are intolerant of tetracyclines may benefit from the usage of erythromycin, a macrolide antibiotic like azithromycin.

Other types of medication like oral isotretinoin, a retinoid, which is derived from vitamin A, has proven to be effective when administered in doses similar to those used for acne vulgaris, specially for the inflammatory lesions, erythema, and rhinophyma. Roche and Barr market isotretinoin under trade names such as Accutane and Claravis respectively, isotretinoin is found in small quantities naturally in the body. There is, however, no beneficial effect on the telangiectasias and isotretinoin may cause blepharitis and conjunctivitis. Other oral agents that have been used include ampicillin and metronidazole. Clonidine may also be of some value in reducing facial flushing.

Several over-the-counter drugs are also helpful when combined with other acne rosacea treatments.Aspirin and NSAIDs help relieve facial pain. Ziana gel by Medicis and Atralin gel by Valeant have tretinoin as the active ingredient. Using anti-aging retinol creams or copper peptide creams will provide acne rosacea treatment and improve facial skin.
