Prescription medications can be important in your rosacea regimen,but knowing how to use them and in what combination is critical. Most medications are covered by prescription health plans.
We’ve learned more and more about how diet and lifestyle affect rosacea. Eating an anti-inflammatory diet, including lots of fiber and taking a good omega 3/6 supplement is important. Pre and probiotics are important as well, and balancing the gut-skin microbiome can be extremely helpful. A bacteria called H.pylori is more prominent in rosacea patients, and screening for SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) and leaky gut can help create your personalized program. If this is suspected in your case, we can help!

Although rosacea is a medical condition, it has cosmetic consequences, and there are several very effective products on the market that do not require a prescription. A good daily skin care routine is critical for rosacea patients, and needs to include gentle cleansing, moisturizing to restore and maintain the skin barrier, and the use of an anti-inflammatory products (think niacinamide, licorice, aloe, resveratrol), and sunblock containing zinc. The skin microbiome is also key. We can help.

When it comes to rosacea, sun protection is absolutely crucial. Regular Sunscreen use alone can significantly improve rosacea symptoms. Sunscreen should be applied every morning, even if you don’t think you are going outdoors. Because rosacea patients generally have sensitive skin, a sunscreen containing zinc and without potentially irritating chemical ingredients is usually the best option.
