chronic, inflammatory skin condition. How can this be cured?
What is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a chronic and inflammatory skin condition that primarily affects the face. It is characterized by redness, visible blood vessels (telangiectasia), and often leads to the development of small, red, pus-filled bumps or pustules. Rosacea can also cause a persistent flush or a tendency to blush easily. It typically appears on the cheeks, nose, forehead, and chin but can also affect the eyes, causing symptoms such as dryness, redness, and irritation (ocular rosacea). Symptoms can come and go.
Rosacea appears as superficial dilated capillaries causing redness and swelling mostly found on fair skin. Once blood is no longer supplied to the broken capillaries, it is naturally absorbed and expelled by the body.

What causes Rosacea?
Rosacea is caused by demodex mite and bacteria that invade the capillary vessel causing inflammation, redness, swelling and acne-like breakouts.
The abnormal structural elements, which enable this bacteria and mite to invade capillary vessels, are caused by a lack of Langerhans cells, important defenders, making up part of the skin’s immune system, which normally engulf and fight any invasion of foreign material.
When Langerhans cells are compromised the immune response in the tissue is lowered and inflammation occurs.
If the Langerhans cells were performing optimally, they would have engulfed the bacteria before it invaded the vessels. Therefore, their functionality needs to be addressed in order to resolve the condition.
