Rosacea Types, Causes, How to Control it
Reading Time: 3 minutes

Rosacea is a common chronic skin disorder, with various types and causes, that usually affects the central part of the face. It often occurs between 30 and 60, most commonly in women. It is more common in people with fair skin and blue eyes.

 Rosacea has periods of relapse and remission, and its severity varies from person to person. Symptoms usually affect the face but may influence other parts of the body as well. Rosacea hallmark is small purulent, red bumps on the skin that appear during flare-ups. If you don’t know how to control it, Procutin –the product of Ozidex- helps you to soothe your signs by eliminating Demodex mites.

Types of Rosacea and Their Symptoms

Rosacea is usually divided into four types:

• Erythematotelangiectatic (ETR): Prominent blood vessels, flushing, and redness of the face are characteristic of this type of rosacea. Dry, rough, and scaly skin are other symptoms.

• Acne rosacea: This type is a combination of classic rosacea and acne. In this complication, the skin is red, oily, blushed, and irritated. At the same time, purulent bumps are seen in the affected areas.

• Rhinophyma: It is a relatively rare condition that is more common in men. In this subgroup, and other signs of rosacea, the skin of the nose becomes red and thick, and its sebaceous glands become enlarged.

• Ocular rosacea: This type affects the eye. In this condition, the eyes become red, irritated, watery, and sensitive to light. Blood vessels appear on the eyelids, and vision is affected.

The Cause of Rosacea

Dermatologists have not yet been able to pinpoint the exact cause of this kind of facial redness. However, it seems to be caused by a combination of hereditary and environmental factors.

The Cause of Rosacea

Researchers have linked the following to rosacea:

• Facial blood vessels disorders

• Light skin colour

• Increased Demodex mites

• Helicobacter pylori

• Family history (inheritance)

also, the following factors increase blood flow to the skin and cause or exacerbate rosacea:

• Spicy drinks and foods

• Caffeine and dairy products

• Alcohol consumption

• Hot weather

• Sunlight, humidity, or wind

• Extreme sports

• Medicines to treat high blood pressure

• Some chronic diseases such as high blood pressure

• Stress, anxiety, and nervousness

The Role of Demodex in Rosacea

Demodex is a microscopic mite that lives in the skin pores. It used to be thought that the mite is harmless. Recent research, however, has shown that some health-related conditions can increase the number of Demodex mites and cause or exacerbate various dermatological problems.

A few mechanisms suggest the relationship between Demodex and rosacea; the most important of all are bacteria that live in the mite’s body. Demodex is like a bus carrying many harmful bacteria, which some of them have shown to be effective in causing rosacea.

What confirms this theory is that the number of Demodex (bacteria-carrying buses) in people with rosacea is about ten times that of healthy people.

    What would you recommend to wash my face with? I have tried everything for my rosacea and acne and nothing helped. I truly feel like this is my problem and why I haven’t responded to everything else I tried.

      Hi Sarah,

      Such a good question! With soaps and cleansers, they are limited to helping Demodex and most people tend to overuse these things and strip the skin which can lower its barriers and make it an even better place for the mites to breed, as your skin is not putting up barriers to them overpopulating.

      The Procutin spray will kill populations on the surface of the skin when used nightly, and gradually reduce their numbers and break the cycle. If your skin is acne/rosacea prone, we would recommend following the ‘sensitive’ dilution guide included in the User Guide to minimise die-off flareup that dead mites can cause.

      Cleanser wise we would recommend the Demodex Defence Cleanserfrom Ungex, as it will clean the skin, and not provide any excess food for them that other products might. You can find it here (LINK DDC, although you may receive a cheeky gift along in your order 😉

      The key to using cleansers is to only use when there is something on your skin that warm water alone cannot remove (this applies to any brand), so not to strip the skin.

      Wishing you the best of luck on your journey Sarah, don’t hesitate to get in touch with any further queries!

      Kind regards,
      The Ozidex Team
