Artesunate for Rosacea

Recommended Posts


Artesunate is another anti-parasitic agent used to treat rosacea. A paper published June 2018 in Molecular Medicine Reports concluded, "In conclusion, the therapeutic and antimicrobial effect of artesunate on rosacea caused by D. folliculorum infection was demonstrated. The present study provided reliable data for future animal experimentation and clinical research. Artesunate may be a promising novel therapeutic method for the treatment of rosacea."
