"Artemisinin (ART), an anti-malaria drug, was reported to have several effects including anti-inflammation and anti-angiogenesis activities. However, the role of ART on rosacea remains unclear....ART ameliorated rosacea-like dermatitis by regulating immune response and angiogenesis, indicating that it could represent an effective therapeutic option for patients with rosacea."

Artemesinin is on the list of anti-malaria treatments used for successful rosacea treatment. Technically, artemisinin is not an anti-viral, but an anti-malaria treatment used on Plasmodium falciparum, a protozoa. Hopefully, we will hear of anecdotal reports of Rosaceans using artemisinin for rosacea with positive results. "Artemisinin derivatives are known for their ability to suppress immune reactions such as inflammation." Wikipedia

"Artemisinin is extracted from the plant Artemisia annua, sweet wormwood, a herb employed in Chinese traditional medicine. A precursor compound can be produced using a genetically-engineered yeast, which is much more efficient than using the plant." Wikipedia

Artemisinin is available over the counter and considered one of the Anti-parasitic Prescription Agents.

Therefore, KLK5 inhibitors are considered as therapeutic agents for improving the underlying pathophysiology and clinical manifestation of rosacea. Here, we isolated the active constituents of Artemisia lavandulaefolia (A. lavandulaefolia) and investigated their inhibitory effect on KLK5 protease activity.
