What Causes Rosacea?
To successfully treat and prevent recurrence of rosacea we need to understand and — if possible — remove the underlying causes and risk factors.
We need to ask: "What else is going on inside the body that might allow rosacea to develop?"
Diagnose your symptoms now!
- check your overall health status
- have a doctor review your case (optional)
- identify any nutritional deficiencies
Accurate diagnosis of the factors behind rosacea consists of three steps:
Step 1: List the Possible Causative Factors
Identify all disease conditions, lifestyle choices and environmental risk factors that can lead to rosacea. For example, helicobacter pylori infection.
Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist
Identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
history of H. Pylori infection
frequent rotten egg burps
H. Pylori infection
... and so on
Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause
A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of rosacea.
Arriving at a Correct Diagnosis
is our online diagnosis tool that learns all about you through a straightforward process of multi-level questioning, providing diagnosis at the end.
In the Existing Skin Conditions
section of the questionnaire, The Analyst™
will ask the following question about rosacea:
Do you have Rosacea? This is a facial rash usually composed of prominent redness and sometimes also pimple-like bumps that do not become whiteheads or blackheads.
→ Don't know
→ No, definitely not
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate either not having rosacea or rosacea, The Analyst™
will consider possibilities such as Helicobacter Pylori Infection
. A high incidence of Helicobacter pylori infection in the stomach has been found amongst rosacea patients.
