I've been dealing with mild rosacea for over 20 years and have tried many products with minimal success. It's been getting worse, so I've been praying for and searching for a cure. I recently read posts on this site about anti-dandruff shampoo as a treatment. In just a few days of use, it's working! I've been using Selsun Blue w 1 % selenium sulfide. I do a couple treatments a day of applying the shampoo to my face and leaving on for about 30 min. It stings a little, and at first seems to make it worse. But now, the bumps are getting smaller and the redness is fading. I'm assuming the shampoo is killing off the bacteria caused by the skin mites. Btw, I also use it on my hair and make sure I have a clean pillowcase to sleep on. In between treatments I apply aloe, which soothes the skin and tightens the pores. I must say, I'm looking pretty good!
I tried topical ACV treatments but it burned my skin and caused scabs. I wasn't too thrilled about that. I say go with the Selsun Blue and aloe! I appreciate those who have volunteered their testimonies in an effort to help others...and felt like I needed to do the same. I'm thanking God that I was led to this site!
P.s. I'm also taking a tbsp. of ACV with water every day. I don't know if it's doing anything, but it sure tastes good! LOL
For some reason, I was looking at my rampant rosacea and thought, "this is all red, itchy, flaky, why don't I try dandruff shampoo since these are the symptoms of dandruff. " Immediately, I noticed a difference in my skin. The redness diminished tremendously as well as the pustules, flakiness and all. My skin almost looks normal, and it's soft again. I thought I'd invented the wheel or something! Good to know I was on the right track. I don't know what is in the shampoo, probably some sort of sulfide.
