Posted October 05, 2018 05:05:13 A skin condition called rosacea is one of the most common skin conditions to appear in older people.
In the US, there are roughly 40 million older Americans, and the disease is associated with skin problems ranging from rosophilia to psoriasis.
But the condition has become so common that the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) lists it as a “precursor” to rosary-like prayer practices in its diagnosis and treatment sections.
To make matters worse, the symptoms of rosaceas are often not recognized until the disease has gone unrecognized for years, making them incredibly hard to treat.
That’s why it’s important to get an accurate diagnosis and the right treatment.
Fortunately, there is a way to get rid of the symptoms in your skin and get back to being healthy.
In a new paper published in the journal PLOS ONE, the team from the University of Southern California (USC) and the University at Buffalo (USCB) describes a new treatment they found that uses an anti-inflammatory drug to treat the symptoms that occur with rosacio.
The team says the drug, an anandamide analog, helps treat the inflammation that rosiosis causes.
“We have found a novel treatment for rosaria, which is associated in the US with a range of chronic inflammatory conditions,” says lead author and USC professor of dermatology and of dermatologic surgery Dr. Johnson.
“This treatment has been used successfully for rosa and other inflammatory conditions in humans for decades, and it was thought to be impossible to develop clinically effective therapies.”
In the study, Dr. Johnston and colleagues showed that the anandamides known as anandarabine and anandaclid help reduce inflammation and damage to the cells lining the skin’s surface, which can be linked to rosa.
“Using anandabine, we found that by reducing the inflammation and repairing damaged cells, we reduced the inflammatory response and improved skin health,” Dr. Johnson says.
“By treating rosa, we were able to restore normal function to the skin.”
The research also showed that by using anandaramides, it is possible to improve the efficacy of drugs that reduce inflammation.
While the team did not use anandammid in their study, other researchers have shown that anandarbibine can be used in other skin disorders.
The USC team suggests that people who have rosarias and are interested in a healthier skin should try these two new treatments.
