Controlling the Bumps and Blemishes of Rosacea with ORACEA Capsules by Galderma

Did you know that more than 16 million Americans have rosacea, yet many people don’t know their symptoms could be a sign of this chronic inflammatory skin condition?1

I am fair skinned and began to see red bumpy patches popping up when I was younger. They used to go away fairly quickly, but as I got older, I noticed that these patches would stay around a little longer. During my first visit to my dermatologist in my early 30s, I learned that those red bumpy patches were not acne, instead they were rosacea. I had absolutely no idea what that was.

Because bumps and blemishes are among the most common symptoms of rosacea, it is not surprising that nearly half (49%) of sufferers think they have acne before being correctly diagnosed with rosacea by a doctor. This is exactly what happened with me. I began to notice that the redness and bumps would appear at specific times – from eating or drinking certain things, sun exposure, heat, stress, exercise – all of these things could trigger my rosacea. I really wanted to figure out how I could treat it.

About Rosacea

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that typically affects the face and over 16 million Americans suffer from it. Like me, at first many people don't realize their symptoms are a possible sign of rosacea.1

Symptoms of the condition include:2

  • bumps and blemishes
  • facial redness
  • visible blood vessels
  • blushing
  • acne-like breakouts

Rosacea tends to come on a little later in life, as it tends to first appear after the age of 30. This is exactly what I experienced. Flare-ups are often triggered by things like:2

  • stress
  • alcohol consumption
  • spicy food
  • heat, cold, and sun exposure

About ORACEA® Capsules

ORACEA® (doxycycline, USP) 40 mg Capsules* are a simple and effective once-daily treatment for the bumps and blemishes of rosacea. ORACEA Capsules are different in that they treat rosacea from within. This low-dose oral medication helps treat inflammation below the skin to reduce the bumps and blemishes of rosacea you see developing on the surface.

The main ingredient of ORACEA Capsules is a non-antibiotic dose of doxycycline. While traditional higher dosages of the drug work by killing bacteria, the low dosage of ORACEA Capsules does something different. ORACEA Capsules rely on the anti-inflammatory properties of doxycycline to combat rosacea. This matters for a few reasons. One, rosacea is a chronic inflammatory condition, not a bacterial infection. Two, a 9 month clinical study showed that the non-antibiotic dose of ORACEA Capsules did not contribute to antibiotic resistance.
