Rosacea


About
Rosacea shows up as red areas on the chin, forehead, nose, and cheekbones. It is a result of capillaries that are near the skin's surface becoming larger. Pimples may also accompany this disorder.


Notes
  • Make sure you are taking supplements for overall good health. If you are not taking these basic supplements, we recommend Enfuz from Vitabase. When you take a small packet of pills each day, you get all the basic nutrition you need. Each packet contains a multi-vitamin, CoQ10 (for heart health), Omega 3, Vitamin D-3, a probiotic, and a powerful set of antioxidants to help your body fight off disease.
  • A mite called Demodex Folliculorum is found on skin cells but is much higher on people with rosacea.
  • Rosacea does not have a cure and prescriptions are usually prescribed to keep inflammation under control.
  • Rosacea might be linked to vascular disorder.
