Using Azelaic Acid For Treating Acne & Rosacea

Azelaic Acid is used to treat acne and rosacea. It cures acne by killing the bacteria P.acnes that causes the acne. Azelaic Acid also opens the sebaceous glands by reducing production of keratin. With these two actions, azelaic acid reduces the acne inflammation and treats it. Azelaic acid is also widely used to treat the swelling, pustules and bumps in rosacea. How it cures rosacea is not understood yet.

Another use of azelaic acid is bleaching of skin. You can use it to bleach hyper-pigmented skin. So, while treating acne or rosacea, you have to watch the skin color. If it is getting lighter, contact your doctor.
