So, you’re probably tired of looking for how to diagnose Rosacea, because there’s no specific test for this. But you can identify it by its symptoms and then confirm it with a dermatologist. Don’t worry. If I’m not a doctor I need one, why do all the work by myself? But if you wanna check by yourself, wanna be a little confirm if you have Rosacea or not, then Check the Symptoms of Rosacea here.

How to Diagnose Rosacea?

There is no specific test used for Rosacea. But after examining the skin Rosacea can be diagnosed. There will be the presence of large red blood vessels in the affected area in any Rosacea. There will be no dilated blood vessels in just acne situations or others—that is how doctors distinguish Rosacea from other skin problems.

Do not delay your schedule with a dermatologist. Late diagnosis can make the scar deep, blood vessels look reddish all the time, and skin will be more thickened in the case of Phymatous rosacea.

How to Treat Rosacea?


There are oral antibiotics that can reduce inflammation. Minocycline, Tetracycline, Doxycycline, Metronidazole, etc. Tetracycline helps to reduce eye inflammation. This is a long-term treatment and may take a few months to show results. These kill bacteria on the skin and reduce the redness.


This tightens dilute blood vessels on the skin. Dilute blood vessels are the main reason behind the Rosacea.


It is an oral medication used for severe Rosacea when other oral antibiotics do not work. Isotretinoin like Amnesteem and others helps to clear the skin. But these medicines have some side effects. Do not use it when you’re pregnant, it can cause serious damage.

Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is used to get rid of bigger blood vessels. It visibly reduces the appearance of blood vessels on the skin. Extreme light helps to shrink vessels. But laser therapy has some side effects like skin swelling, injuring, crusting, discoloring, etc.

Scalpel Surgery

This removes excess skin caused by skin thickening due to Phymatous Rosacea. Consult with your dermatologist.

Eye Drops

For eye Rosacea like Ocular Rosacea, you need something that can alleviate the eyes. Eyes in Ocular Rosacea are very sensitive, itchy, watery, and bloodshot. So start your medication before it grows. The doctor may recommend steroid eye drops for this.

Home Remedies to Treat Rosacea

Here I am listing some home remedies to reduce inflammation and Rosacea. But remember there’s always a risk when using home remedies, especially natural products. Use only those products whose pH is more than three and less than 7 because our skin pH is 5. But if you have Rosacea, your skin is already very sensitive. So dilute the product where needed. It’s best to not use these products directly on your skin. Find skincare items that contain these ingredients.


Turmeric is a very good anti-inflammatory herb. You can consume it internally or apply it directly to your skin. Mix the Turmeric with a Carrier oil. You may use Turmeric Essential oil if you want. Or you can just dilute the Turmeric with water or milk and use it.

Aloe vera

Aloe vera pH level is close to skin pH level, so it is safe to use. It has Vitamin A, C & E, Enzymes like cellulose, lipase, etc. It also contains fatty acids and amino acids. Aloe vera is an amazing plant with healing properties. It can reduce sunburn, and inflammation, increase collagen secretion, etc. Simply open a leaf of the Aloe vera plant, extract the gel-type transparent substance and apply it to the skin. I prefer this way instead of spending money on Aloe vera gel. But whatever you do, do a patch test before applying it to your face or neck.


Chamomille is also good for anti-inflammation. You can use Chamomile Tea. Boil the tea in water for 5 minutes then cool it and apply it. Chamomile essential oil is extracted from the Chamomile Tree that you can also use. Mix it with a Carrier oil, then apply it. Using skin care products like Moisturizers with Chamomille is a better idea than using essential oil. Paula’s Choice Body Treatment has salicylic acid and Chamomile in it. This is meant for every skin type, including acne skin type.

Raw Manuka Honey

Raw honey like Manuka Honey is can be a good product to relieve Rosacea. Honey is well known for its moisturizing properties. Use any raw honey on your face or inflamed area directly for a few minutes and then wash it off. Manuka honey has a healing property and can be used for treating acne too.

Green Tea

Green tea is one of my favorite ingredients. It is so soothing on the skin and also hydrating. Green tea is rich in antioxidants and very effective to reduce Rosacea. You can use Green tea leaves by boiling them in water for five minutes. Drink green tea, and keep one-two spoon to apply it directly to your skin (after cooling). But in the market, there are great products you can find those are rich in green tea. I love ISNTREE and Innisfree green tea Toner. They have like 70-80% of green tea extract. As I love lotion, TONYMOLY Green Tea Lotion is my favorite in the Green Tea lotion department.

Tea Tree

The tea tree is well known for treating acne. It has anti-inflammatory properties. It’s better to use Tea Tree Skincare products than Tea tree essential oil.


Niacinamide is another favorite ingredient. It minimizes redness, treats hyperpigmentation, builds skin layer, minimizes pores, etc. Using serums, and lotions with niacinamide can significantly improve the overall skin condition. Paula’s Choice CLINICAL 20% Niacinamide Serum is rich in Niacinamide. You can mix it with your regular moisturizer. CeraVe PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion is another good light product for nighttime. It will moisturize your skin with added benefits of niacinamide.
