Suggest natural remedies for rosacea

Have rosacea on my face and it keeps getting worse and not better. Have used topical metronidazole but not helping. Also have heard of bad side effects. Is there an herbal treatment without drug side effects. What do you suggest? Have had this over a year now and getting tired.

Hi,

Apart from allopathic medication advised by a dermatologist, many home remedies are useful in the management of rosacea.

Antioxidant teas like green tea or chamomile tea. Local or oral aloe vera, apple cider vinegar, honey, rapeseeds, cucumber & use of sunscreen do help to manage the problem.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Vasudha Jayant Athavale, General & Family Physician
