Rosacea

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
gastritis
... 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

The Analyst™ 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.
Possible responses:
→ Don't know
→ No, definitely not
→ Mild
→ Moderate
→ Severe
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.
