Topical Rosacea Treatments
New Treatment Topics
Sunscreens and Coneflower (Echinacea)
Sunscreens are a vital and irreplaceable component of the modern dermatologic armamentarium against all stages of rosacea.
More complete photoprotection (mechanisms which limit damage due to UV exposure) reduces the severity and improves the prognosis of rosacea.
Although sunscreen formulations have improved there are no sunscreen agents (alone or in combination) which provide complete photoprotection.
Topical application of antioxidants has emerged as an effective adjunctive strategy.
In Germany these extracts are approved medicinal agents for inflammatory skin disorders.
