There are very few skin conditions that are as embarrassing as having to deal with rosacea. The reason is that this skin condition is most prominent in the place where the casual person would actually see it first; the face. And to make matters worse, if left untreated, rosacea can form to create total havoc and actually get worse. In this article, I intend to show a few natural ways to treat rosacea without having to go to the doctor.
The first thing I should mention is that if you think you have this, you should go to a doctor to confirm it before you start a home remedy. Self diagnosing a problem may be cheaper but if you are wrong, you could do more harm than good. And if you are wrong, chances are great, there will be no results and it will wind up being a big waste of time.
Finally, there is no known cure for rosacea. What this means is that your best bet would be to try to contol its outbreaks by understanding what causes it in the first place.
The “wrong” foods can cause rosacea outbreaks
While little is known as to why rosacea happens, researchers have been able to pinpoint some possible culprits that could be the reason why outbreaks happens. Foods that have been documented to cause rosacea include:
- Spicy Foods
In addition to this, there are certain weather elements that can onset an attack that include exposure to the sun and the wind.
Rosacea has been linked to digestive conditions
If you have issues such as constipation or acid indigestion, then you could be at risk of an outbreak. Low levels of stomach acid in rosacea patients have shown that it is a catalyst for digestion of key minerals that play a major factor in digestion.
