Acne Rosacea is also called as papulopustular rosacea. This type is often misdiagnosed as common acne. This kind of rosacea is often accompanied by redness and pustules across the face.
Herbal cure and remedies:
Herbal medicines as manufactured medications are not harsh because the active compound mixture is occurring naturally in plants. So plants like tea tree, feverfew, lavender and ginger are generally mild components and thus produce very less side effects when compared to other chemical mixtures.
Oatmeal, green tea and chamomile are all effective herbs because they contain anti-inflammatory factors that soothe the skin, help in the release of heat and allow skin healing.
One of the prime herbs used to treat Rosacea is Licorice and has been used in herbal medicine since many ages. Licorice has been proven to soothe irritation and reduce inflammation. It also works effectively in reducing redness and itchiness of those red patches suffered by most acne rosacea patients.
Licorice also acts on body natural defense system to remove the germs that can aggravate rosacea and form those dirty pustules.
Face washes prepared from oatmeal work towards relieving the itching. The natural antibiotics found in ginger taken as teas also help to reduce redness and inflammation.
Medicinal plants like aloe vera can also reduce inflammation, redness and swelling of acne rosacea with consistent and regular use. The aloe vera extract increases the oxygen flow to the skin and thus promotes healing. These above mentioned herbal remedies help to cure rosacea to certain extent.
