Stop the itch of Rosacea

Rosacea flare-ups can be a little different for everyone. Some experience facial tingling, burning, and hot spots, and for many there's an undeniable itch under the skin that drives you one stop short of crazy.

Here are some tips to stop the itch of Rosacea:

Don't Scratch the Itch

Don't scratch Rosacea flare-ups or inflammation will spreadThe itch of Rosacea is often caused by an inflammation of hair follicles, resulting in those bothersome red pustules. Although one or two spots is disconcerting, scratching it will only make it worse. Each time you scratch, you are spreading bacteria to other hair follicles, which will cause more inflammation and red pustules. And the result? A major break-out and even more itching!

Soothe the Itch with Pramoxine Lotion

Use Sarna Sensitive Lotion for quick itch relief It's easy to assume topical corticosteroids (anti-itch creams) are best to calm your itchy spots, but not only do they clog pores and make flare-ups much worse, they can cause other long-term skin problems.

Sarna Sensitive is a soothing lotion made specifically for relieving the itch associated with sensitive skin conditions like Eczema and dry skin, {INCLUDING Rosacea}!  Sarna is steroid-free and fragrance-free, with 1% Pramoxine Hydrochloride, the active ingredient that soothes itching. It cools as it soothes and offers amazing relief. My dermatologist said it's gentle enough to use whenever and as much as needed, so you can stop the itch in its tracks!

P.S. Be sure to buy Sarna Sensitive Lotion. It has a much lighter scent than the regular Sarna (which is said to have a strong medical cream type smell).

Take an Allergy Pill

Stop the itch of Rosacea by taking allergy pills

Allergy pills aren't just for hayfever anymore! I discovered a few years ago, when trying to relieve some allergy stuffiness, that when I took an allergy pill it actually helped calm rosacea flare-ups.

I have now incorporated taking 1 allergy pill a day, Allerclear - active ingredient Loratadine, which my doctor said is perfectly safe. While taking an allergy pill doesn't stop Rosacea flares from starting, its antihistamine action kicks in when the flare up tries to start. Instead of a large red itchy spot rising to the surface, the redness and itching are much more subdued and less noticeable.

Use a Cold Compress

When Rosacea flares, those hot itchy spots can be quite bothersome. By using a soft washcloth cool compress, itchy skin can be soothed and inflammation can be reduced. Be sure to use cool water instead of ice. Freezing your hot spots can actually make them worse, since Rosacea doesn't respond well to extreme temperatures.
