What is Roseacia?
Severe acne like structures including painful cyst and puss all over the facial area like cheek, forehead and chin and sometimes also neck and chest area could be defined as Roseacia. There is high amount of redness in impacted area along with inflammation.
It generally impacts people with fair complexion and the mostly impacted age group is 30 plus. But I got Roseacia when I was just 21 during my college days. It was a real struggle.
When I was 18 , I stayed with my parents. And I had a pretty good skin as I belong from a Bengali family we had lots of fishes frequently in a week along with tomato salad. I did have few bumps then but overall it was fine.
Then I left for coaching in Rajasthan for a year. The vegetarian food provided in the mess was kind of ok. But all of a sudden it made me lose 10 kgs. And my skin kind of detoriated a little.
When I joined college in Bangalore almost after a year I could see severe red bumps on my face. At first I just considered it as simple acne but it got severe after few months. The red patches were very painful to touch and few cysts were also there which were hard and painful too due to the puss inside it.
It was really irritating to hear what happened to your face and all that shit was kind of annoying.
After that my sister took me to the dermatologist and almost a bill of 6-7 thousand rupees was billed for a single consultation along with medicine. The doctor prescribed chemical peel at first or laser but my sister got nervous about that as we were not much aware regarding that.
Again months passed by and there was no such improvement and my skin condition was getting worse. Then my brother in law told me that I should go for an Ayurvedic treatment.
Basically Ayurveda is an ancient Indian treatment which uses medicinal herbs for various ailments.
I went to a Patanjali Ayurvedic Clinic in Bangalore. Where there was a female doctor. She told me to quit foods such as burger , pizza and other spicy food. Burger and pizza was not that difficult to quit as I stayed in hostel and it wasn’t so easy to go for junk food frequently as I stayed a bit far from the city area. And our hostel had spicy food cooked everyday. So I always had to go for simple pulses along with rice and lemon. Avoiding all the good looking spicy meals.
She also gave me a lot of medicine and some were in powdered form which I had to mix with honey and take daily twice. And a face pack which smelled really bad to me along with my roommates. It was really frustrating and tiring to do so many rituals a day but when I looked at the mirror I got more determined not skipping a days treatment.
At first there were no changes. So I revisited her again then she told me that I should shampoo my hair regularly 3 times a week. And also changed some medicine. I also left milk products and sometimes I rarely had curd during meals.After that 6 months passed by and my skin repaired a lot. I could see the changes along with my other friends. The rocasea was almost gone. But the scars remained. I mean not the black spots but the depression created by the cyst.
At last I was releaved from one of greatest struggle of my life. And also saved a lot of money as Ayurvedic medicines are less costly.
