How to get rid of red cheeks | Treatment & natural remedies

how to get rid of red cheeksHow to get rid of red cheeks? Let’s be clear. Rosacea is characterized by a reddening of the face, associated with telangiectasias (dilation of superficial blood vessels, which become visible on the nose and cheeks), papules and pustules. The appearance of redness on the face may be accompanied by burning, heat and slight swelling. In the most serious cases, there is a thickening of the skin, which sometimes becomes particularly evident above and around the nose, which appears bulbous and swollen . Some symptoms of Acne rosacea may also develop on the neck, scalp and ears. In addition to skin problems, the disease can cause symptoms in the eyes and eyelids (eye rosacea): dryness, burning sensation, swelling of the eyelids, reddening of the conjunctiva, increased sensitivity to light and tearing. Acne rosacea tends to have a progressive course, so symptoms tend to worsen over time. Four sequential phases are generally recognized. The pre-rosace phase can start with flushes and a tendency to blush easily, often accompanied by an annoying tingling sensation.

In the vascular phase, patients develop erythema and facial edema with telangiectasias. An inflammatory phase follows, during which papules (small red swellings) and pustules (reliefs full of pus) appear. During advanced rosacea, the reddening of the skin and the number of visible blood vessels increase. Because of the progressive course of rosacea, early diagnosis is important and treatments tend to be more effective if started earlier. Diagnosis is based on clinical evaluation. In moderate and severe forms, the disorder sometimes takes on an appearance similar to acne vulgaris, but differs from it essentially by the age of onset (adult rather than puberty) and the absence of blackheads (blackheads). The differential diagnosis must also be made with respect to systemic lupus erythematosus, Photodermatose and drug rashes. Treatment can reduce and control the symptoms of rosacea. Therapy involves avoiding triggering factors (the use of sunscreens is important) and generally involves the use of oral and topical antibiotics (e.g. metronidazole and azelaic acid). Some forms can be attenuated by vascular laser treatments, pulsed light and Photodynamic therapy.
