Symptoms of Rosacea

Some of the typical symptoms of rosacea are flushed and red face, which may last for a few days, bumps on or around the cheeks, nose, mouth, and forehead, appearance of small red veins similar to spider webs, burning sensation experienced when lotions or medicines are applied on the skin, dryness or sensitivity of facial skin, sunburn, dry eyes causing irritation, red and swollen eyelids, unclear vision, and bloodshot, watery eyes.

Natural Cures

Some of the following alternative remedies can be used to alleviate some of the symptoms of rosacea. Here are a few of those:

Emu oil

Some studies have shown that emu oil, known as a tissue nutrient, has several properties that are beneficial in the treatment of rosacea. Skin care products that consist of at least ten percent of emu oil can aid in reducing skin irritation. Washing the facial skin with emu oil soap keeps the skin hydrated and leaves behind a film of emu oil that aids in reducing the inflammation that is associated with rosacea. Emu oil is also non-comedogenic and will not clog pores. Pure emu oil can also be applied onto the skin three times each day to treat rosacea.


One of the key benefits of oatmeal is that it is anti-pruritic or itch-relieving. Colloidal oatmeal is moisturizing and helps to reduce inflammation and itching. It also works as a skin protectant and provides a protective barrier on the skin, which in turn relieves the symptoms of rosacea.


Carrots are also believed to be useful in treating sexual impotence. For best results, finely chop approximately 150 grams of carrots, mix with one half of a hard-boiled egg, and add one tablespoon of honey. Consume this once each day for approximately two months.

Betaine Hydrochloride

Betaine Hydrochloride is renowned for its ability to aid in digestion and to control the growth of bacteria in the digestive system of the body. Consume one to three tablets during each meal to control the growth of bacteria that may incite the development of rosacea.

Herbal remedies

Some herbs that have antimicrobial properties can be used for treating rosacea. Use skin care products that contain green tea, lavender, chamomile, camphor oil, and licorice because they are believed to have anti-inflammatory and soothing properties. These herbs can also be used to make compresses for treating rosacea. However, avoid applying pure essential oils of these herbs directly onto the affected area because they are potent and may react with the skin.

Preventing Rosacea

Although it may not be possible to prevent rosacea, there is no harm in trying some of the preventive measures given below:

Apply an adequate layer of sunscreen (SPF 15 or more) onto your face before exposure to the sun. Reapply sunscreen after swimming, excessive perspiration, or washing your face.
If you are prone to rosacea, avoid excessive physical activity in the sun.
Wear a wide brimmed hat and cover your face with a scarf when venturing outdoors for a long duration.
Avoid skin products that contain alcohol and other skin irritants.
Apply products that are labeled non-comedogenic because these will not block your pores.
Consume a well-balanced diet to improve the health of the skin.
Avoid excessive consumption of alcohol and spicy food.
Lead a stress-free life. Practice deep breathing, yoga, and meditation.
