Treating Acne Associated with Rosacea

Antibiotics are used to treat rosacea and the most common are in the tetracycline category and include doxycycline, tetracycline and minocycline. These antibiotics have anti-inflammatory affects so they suppress the inflammation associated with rosacea and they may also have an affect on the blood vessels that are causing a lot of the problems associated with rosacea. In addition, these antibiotics are also known to treat acne so they work very well on the acne component of rosacea.
