Rosacea Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Rosacea?

Rosacea is a frustrating skin condition that affects the skin of the face. Visible symptoms of rosacea can manifest as swollen and red acne-like bumps accompanied by flaky, sometimes itchy, patches of skin across the cheeks and nose. If left untreated, the symptoms could worsen over time. Many people spend years - and hundreds upon thousands of dollars - trying to find relief, but currently, there is no cure for rosacea.

What is the main cause of Rosacea?

Unfortunately, the cause of Rosacea is unknown. Some suggest that it may result from an overactive immune system and environmental factors, or it may be hereditary. However, it is important to note that poor hygiene does not cause this skin condition, and it cannot be spread from one person to another.

While there is no known cause, it has been shown that certain factors can trigger symptomatic flare-ups, such as:

  • Sun or wind exposure
  • Hot drinks and/or spicy foods
  • Extremely hot or cold temperatures
  • Alcoholic beverages, especially red wine
  • Exercise
  • Medications that cause dilation in the blood vessels
  • Some hair, skin, and cosmetic products


What are the four types of Rosacea?

There are four different types of this skin condition; many people report having symptoms from more than one of these types of Rosacea.

The first is Erythematotelangiectatic Rosacea which is associated with redness of the face due to enlarged blood vessels. Then there is Papulopustular Rosacea. With this type, whitehead pimples and red, swollen bumps appear on the face, most often on the cheeks, chin, and forehead.

There is also Ocular Rosacea, which, as the name suggests, affects the eyes. This type of Rosacea is characterized by watery or bloodshot eyes. People also frequently report burning or irritation in the eyes; however, it can also cause dryness, sensitivity as well as the formation of cysts.

Lastly, Phymatous rosacea is the rarest of the four and often affects the nose. With this type, the skin becomes thicker and scars, resulting in swollen, bumpy skin that may even become discolored.

What helps Rosacea go away?

As we’ve said before, Rosacea is not curable. But here are some treatments you can try which may help relieve the symptoms.

Clinical methods of relieving the symptoms of rosacea could include prolonged use of prescription topical creams or antibiotics. While these can be helpful, recent studies have shown that continued use of antibiotics can be harmful to your body’s natural immune system by building up antibiotic resistance. Another treatment option is photo - or light therapy - where intense, pulsing lasers are used to reduce redness.

The good news is that there are several natural ways to reduce the irritating symptoms of rosacea. Most of these methods can easily go hand in hand with your doctor's treatment plan for your skin. One of the most effective ways to help find natural relief from your rosacea is to try our hand-crafted, natural Goat Milk Soaps.

Is goat's milk good for Rosacea?

Raw goat milk is full of natural properties that have beneficial effects on sensitive and irritated skin. The alpha hydroxy acids, like lactic acid, gently exfoliate dead skin cells while the fats help provide extra moisture to your skin. Goat milk also contains vitamins, like Vitamin A, that are important for maintaining healthy and balanced skin.

Each of our goat milk soaps contains simple, natural ingredients with no added chemicals or toxins. These soothing suds are safe for all skin types and can reduce irritating skin issues like acne, psoriasis, and rosacea.

It is important to keep in mind that everyone’s skin is different, so we can't promise that our Goat Milk Soap will offer you relief from your rosacea symptoms. We can, however, share with you testimonials from people who found relief from their annoying rosacea symptoms with our variety of farm-fresh Goat Milk Soaps.

"I recently purchased the tea tree soap bar. I was skeptical about how my rosacea would react to a new product. To my amazement, it calmed the redness, and the pustules are beginning to diminish. I will definitely purchase more goat milk products!" - Patricia

"I have recently switched to calendula soap now for my rosacea and like it better than the tea tree oil one. So for anyone with rosacea, give it a try. Each person has different skin and needs and will need to determine which soap is best for their own it purity, tea tree oil or calendula for their rosacea or skin issues. I still do like them all and time to time, will use one or the other as well. I also like the castile soap for my body. Good job GMS!" - Cathleen

Who is most likely to get rosacea?

Rosacea is most common in people with fair skin, but it can affect people of any skin tone.

It tends to be more commonly found in women, but men often have more severe symptoms.

Rosacea is also more common in people between the ages of 30 and 60 but can occur at any age. Those with a family history of rosacea are more likely to develop this skin condition, and it is also more common in people who have a history of acne, eczema, or other inflammatory skin conditions.

Is rosacea caused by stress?

Stress is not considered to be a direct cause of rosacea, but it can be a trigger for flare-ups in people who have the condition.

Stress can cause the blood vessels in the face to dilate, which can worsen the redness and visible blood vessels associated with rosacea. Additionally, stress can also increase inflammation in the body, which can also contribute to flare-ups.

Other common triggers for rosacea include sun exposure, alcohol consumption, spicy foods, hot drinks, and certain skincare products. Our sensitive skin soaps are ideal for taking care of rosacea-prone skin.

Is rosacea a serious problem?

The symptoms and severity of rosacea vary from person to person.

Some people may experience only a little occasional redness and flushing, while others may have more severe symptoms that can include thickened skin and eye issues.

While rosacea is not life-threatening, it can have significant effects on a person's quality of life. It can cause physical discomforts, including burning, stinging, and itching, as well as emotional distress and self-consciousness about one's appearance.

In more severe cases, rosacea can also cause eye problems such as blepharitis, conjunctivitis, and rosacea keratitis. It is important to consult a dermatologist or an ophthalmologist if you are experiencing any eye symptoms, as they can cause damage to the cornea if left untreated.
