SIBO and Rosacea
Day Two: Saturday, October 1, 2022 | 10:00 AM - 10:30 AM
Increasing evidence suggests that the gut-skin axis is implicated in the pathogenesis of rosacea. Sufficient data exists to support the concept that the gut microbiome plays a role in the inflammatory cutaneous response and there appears to be associations with small intestinal bacterial overgrowth and Helicobacter pylori infection. A dysbiotic microbiome and an innate immune system dysregulation contribute to the pathophysiology of rosacea. Greater understanding of this connection between the gut-skin axis could allow for more efficacious and timely treatment.
