Rosacea is a chronic condition characterized by facial erythema redness .Pimples are sometimes included as part of the definition. Unless it affects the eyes, it is typically a harmless cosmetic condition. Treatment, if wanted, usually involves topical medications to reduce inflammation. It is a common but often misunderstood condition that is estimated to affect over 45 million people worldwide. It primarily affects Caucasians of mainly northwestern European descent and has been nicknamed the curse of the Celts by some in Britain and Ireland, but can also affect people of other ethnicities. Rosacea affects both sexes, but is almost three times more common in women. It has a peak age of onset between 30 and 60. Rosacea typically begins as redness on the central face across the cheeks, nose, or forehead, but can also less commonly affect the neck, chest, ears, and scalp. In some cases, additional symptoms, such as semi-permanent redness, telangiectasia dilation of superficial blood vessels on the face , red domed papules small bumps and pustules, red gritty eyes, burning and stinging sensations, and in some advanced cases, a red lobulated nose rhinophyma , may develop.

hello all.. ayurveda also recommends special diet to cure and above all to prevent this skin disease. Some of acne rosacea friendly diet may include deeply colored fruits, fish oil , soya, carbohydrates, whole grains, green beans, potatoes and omega 3 rich oil.
Neem leaf is very useful to cure acne rosacea. Ayurveda prescribes medicines like Arogya-Vardhini, Maha-Manjishthadi-Qadha, Panch-Tikta-Ghrut-Guggulu, Gandhak-Rasayan, Saarivadi-Churna, Tapyadi-Loh, Chandrakala-Ras, Manjishtha, Saariva , Nimba , Kutki , Patol , Patha and Khadeer for treating this disease. however, ayurveda also believes that curing rosacea becomes much simpler if detected in early stages. often rosacea cannot be cured by one method. Often the treatment includes a combination of methods and strict diet control.

You said Manjistha would help in reducing body heat..What exactly is Manjishta and how it should be taken...Orally or just apply it on the affected part ??

Acne Rosacea is a skin disorder leading to redness and pimples on the face, cheeks, chin bones, forehead, and nose. In this black heads are not present at all. It is more commonly found in fair skinned people and those who flush easily. Homeopathic treatment is focussed on treating the person as a whole, alongwith due consideration to the pathophysiological condition.

mahesh, Let me remind you that homeopathic prescription can be given only after a detailed case study and analysis. It is also important that a physician examines you and diagnoses with what you are actually suffering from. Taking a homeopathic med without proper consultation will not give desirable results. So, follow my advice and visit a good, registered homeopath in your area. He/she will be able to help you get rid of your problem In the meantime, eat a healthy well balanced diet and drink plenty of fluids including water, fruit juices. Avoid fatty food and junk food and dont forget to wash your face atleast four times a day with regular water. Do not apply soap.
