Today's post is about a topic that I'm interested in and concerned with as, while I don't have rosacea, I do have a skin condition and I think it would be great for more people know know about skin conditions as sometimes they can be misdiagnosed or go untreated. When my eczema first started about eight years ago, I thought it was rosacea at the time as sometimes my eczema can look a little like rosacea but I've been diagnosed with eczema which I get on my face, eyes and hands.
I know how awful it can be to have a long term skin condition, especially during the teenage years when appearance seems to be everything. I've already published a post about my experience of eczema including some of the products and tips that helped me. One of the main things that I have found really difficult in my eczema experience is trying to find the right treatment, I've tried so many steroid and non-steroid creams as well as allergy tablets and dietary changes to try to find a combination or treatment that helps and it can be a frustrating and depressing process; however finding the right treatment is essential.
For rosacea, there are numerous treatment options as there are with eczema so it also might take a while to find a treatment that suits but one of the most popular and effective rosacea treatment options is IPL (intense pulsed light) and the Pulse Light Clinic has fifteen years of experience with rosacea treatments. IPL works be emitting light waves that target and damage the affected areas which triggers the body's natural response to repair the damaged areas resulting in new and clearer skin cells to replace the damaged cells.
The before and after photos look amazing and they have a short video showing the rosacea treatments at the Pulse Light Clinic in London. I've read that IPL can be used to treat eczema as well so I will definitely be looking into IPL now as even though I can mostly keep it at bay with non-steroid creams, it still flares up and a more effective treatment would be fantastic. You can contact the Pulse Light Clinic to book in a free consultation and patch-test, here's their email: email@example.com and phone number: 0207 523 5158.
Again, if you have a skin condition or think you do, make sure you research and looking into various treatments and also speak to your GP about it. I've had to go back to my GP so many times to look into other treatment options for my eczema but it's worth persevering to find the right treatment! This is a sponsored post.
