Spent nearly a month drinking this horrid stuff 2tbsp in 8oz water twice a day in effort to rid myself of this horrid disease. Was so disgusting I wanted to puke, but I kept going because I thought it could help me, even just a little. Saw zero improvement. Same with using it externally. Burned TERRIBLY and made things MUCH worse. After this experience I truly don't understand the hype for this stuff.

A couple of months ago I broke out in red bumps, and papules/postules. The first dermatologist diagonosed it as Contact Dermatitis and prescribed Doxycycline Mono and Fluocinonide 0. 05% Ointment. This medication made my condition worse and I developed an allergic reaction. I later found out that the 1st derm I saw was just a Resident doctor who had not seen the type of Rosacea I had that often.

I went to see a 2nd dermatologist who said the 1st derm (the Resident Dr.) misdiagnosed my condition and that I had Acne Rosacea. The 2nd derm perscribed Prednisone and Metronidazole 0. 75% topical cream and Sulfamethoxazole. Well, guess what, these medications improved my conditon just a little but I developed side effects. The 2nd derm also took a culture and biopsy, which indicated my condition was consistent with Rosacea and ruled out Dermodex Mites. I was also told to use Domeboro, which is an astringent solution for relief of itching. The Domeboro did help with the itching. However the 2nd derm acted as though I was over reacting and seemed less the empathetic to my condition. Needless to say I won't be seeing this derm again.

Yes, I went to see a 3rd derm who perscribed Clindamycin Phosphate Topical Suspension USP 1% (I've seen little results with the CPTS USP 1% after 1 month) the derm also gave me some Clinique redness solutions daily relief cream and Clinique redness solutions daily protective base SPF 15. The C... Redness solutions daily relief cream made my conditon worse. However the C.. base SPF 15 did help to reduce some of the redness.

After searching the Internet, I came across Earth Clinic's site and saw that apple cider vinegar looked like a potential cure. Well I used it for 3 days now (50/50 water & ACV) and it made my conditon worse. I now have more bumps and redness, along with peeling, as well a few more pap/pus. I'm now at my wits end and feel that it's time to see an herbalist. I beginning to think that my Rosacea stems from a digestive/bowel problem since I've had some problems with my d/b. Does anyone recommend a good herbalist/alternative health care practioner in Chicago. ;-(

I have been suffering from Acne rosacea since last four years. Fortunately I landed on this site & read about apple cider vinegar treatment. I have tried it for almost 10 days.. I am taking it internally one cap twice a day & as well as applying 50-50 ACV with water on my face for whole night.

But the reaction is just opposite of what was expected.

Now it has affected my complete face ( full cheeks) and is getting worst with each day.

Please sugest, should I discontinue it?

I really want to get rid of rosacea :-(

Okay, I've been reading about how mites or bugs cause rosaces. Do they also cause the redness? I do not have the acne associated with it but have extreme redness. Will these bugs cause that? If so, how do these mites make the capillaries burst and cause this extreme redness? Has anyone cured the redness? ACV has not worked. Pls help if you can. Many thanks.
