I could never tolerate ACV until I added a 1/4 t of baking soda to it. (3 T of ACV) This was a remedy for a type of fibro. I also take 500 mg of magnesium. It was for the pain of arthritis but wow... my rosacea has improved so much too!! And I have more energy. The arthritis is much much better too. The BS makes the ACV turn to malic acid. I'm so happy!!!

I have been battling with Rosacea for 10 years flaking skin and itching, pimples on my head that sting like a needle when I popped them. My ears were always full of loose skin and when I took it out it was red and sore. Then my face turned red like you cannot believe. I spent hours in the sun cleaning the pool and garden work. It came to the stage when it looked like my face was going to start bleeding. I started looking for help on the internet because the gels and antibiotics the doctors gave me did not help much and was so expensive. Well I found Earth Clinic by accident I read a lot there and decided to try the organic apple cider vinegar. And it was like a miracle. I wash my face with pure glycerine soap and used the vinegar 50/50 with water at first and the redness and itching was gone. Then after it dried I used a mild moisturiser. And If I have to go outside for a long time I use zinc/oxide powder mixed with aquous cream as a sunblock. It works wonders but try and stay away from UV rays of the sun as much as possible. ACV is the best and I tried many medicines and creams.

I followed this post and am proud to say that I'm nearly rosacea-free thanks to ACV, I apply whenever I have small pustules or just redness, my skin looks better, still have some localized redness on the worst spots of my last big flair (under my eyes) but ACV is a miracle - but pay attention because it will raise hell on your face at first, just be strong and endure the pain.

Having Rosacea is a difficult disease to deal with and having tried just about everything for it, I finally found something that works for me.

I diluted ACV 50/50 with water and applied it to my face with a cotton pad, left it on for a couple of minutes, then wiped it off with a clean, wet with water cotton pad. It burned a little, and then within 30 minutes my face looked better than ever before. I then wash my face with a gentle cleanser and put on some moisturizer. I now put this on morning and night, and my skin looks better than in my entire life. The burning on my face stopped within a couple of days, and now it just feels good.

I am also using this on my eyelids for blepharitis and am having great results.

As a side affect. I have blackheads on my nose, and they are diminishing greatly since using the ACV on my face.

I have had problems for years with redness and spots that stay raw and painful. I changed my life style in January to gluten free, because I had also become allergic to nightshade plants which all peppers, tomatoes, potatoes, pears etc. anything that ripens in the dark.

I am 81 years old. I use all fresh and cook from scratch. I am using the vinegar on my face, also coconut oil. I also am using the vinegar and oil on my legs that are also red from poor circulation. There is a big improvement and hope to clear it completely. I find variety is important.

I have some rosacea on my nose and at first wen to the dermatologist. They gave me some ointment which did nothing. so I lived with it and eventually tride Emu oil which Is moderately affective.

Then I read the posts here and decided to try apple cider vinegar. I apply it morning and night and now after a few weeks the rosacea is totally gone! Definitely works for me.

To Jerome from Brooklyn, I am very grateful for your post. I tried the same procedure last year with ACV for rosacea on my right cheek and it worked for me, although I had to repeat a few times. The key is full strength and not to give up. I almost did because the appearance of my face really scared me the first time I applied the ACV - I thought I might have ruined my skin - but I hadn't. Here's what I did:

I applied full strength ACV on a cotton pad directly to my cheek. I must have left it on for 20 minutes and when I got up and looked in the mirror, my check was swollen, extremely red, and there was some blood. I was horrified! It looked like I'd been punched in the face. I left it alone for a couple of days but I re-read Jerome's post for support and I just continued to wipe the area twice a day until the scabs that formed had healed and peeled off (about a week or two). The rosacea got much worse than it had been, which was a good thing. It made me break out in areas on that cheek that I don't usually break out in. But I knew that was okay because if I applied the ACV to my left cheek (that doesn't have rosacea), there was no reaction. The ACV only affected rosacea prone areas. After the worst affected area had healed, I just continued wiping the other now pimply areas, but it didn't really work well. I found that I needed to give the area a good soaking - leaving the full strength ACV pad on for 15 minutes or so. Anyway, I ended up repeating this process about 3 times because it was drawing out my rosacea pimples from my skin, wiping in between while waiting for the scabs to heal. It pretty much got rid of all of the rosacea and I didn't have any rosacea or pimples on my cheeks for 9 months. Recently, the redness/rosacea pimples starting coming back a little and so I started the process again. This time my reaction was more mild because the rosacea isn't nearly as bad (no swelling, no bleeding, but some scabbing on my face right now). The rosacea will be all gone within a week or two. I hadn't applied ACV to my skin for 8 months, so now I know that I should continue just using ACV as a toner, to keep it in check. If you have bad rosacea, I would recommend this process if you have at least 4-5 days off work if your skin reacts as mine did. But it's worth it because nothing else worked for me.

Btw, I didn't take ACV internally because I tried it a long time ago and it gave me a yeast infection. I've decided since that like with my skin, it was probably just trying to flush out the bad stuff (fungus, yeast, ??).

For years several Dermatologists have precribed any number of chemicals. I believe my Rosacea (per doctor's opinion) is caused by nanomites. Whenever I start feeling the familiar itchy crawlies - I wipe with ACV. No need for chemicals. This completely resolves the issue with the added value that ACV is being absorbed through the skin for other benefits! NOTE: At first I get an immediate reaction that makes my skin red but this passes and my skin feels smooth with NO itching or blotching. I also bathe with Selsun Blue Shampoo - hair, body and face - eyebrows, lashes - leave it on for a few minutes and rinse; followed by a rinse of ACV. I found all this information here on Earthclinic and am eternally grateful!

I am 85 & have had many drugs for terminal illnesses. As a result I have toe fungus, a rash on the glans of my penis & acne/rosacea. I have consulted a dermatologist for 3 years and recently asked why his ointments show no progress. He replied that I would have to take liver destroying drugs for the fungus, circumcision for the rash & laser treatment for the rosacea.

I have the Dr. JervisMD book "Vermont Folk Remedies" so I started taking 2 tablespoonfuls of Apple Cider Vinegar in a small amount of water twice a day & applied ACV to the problem areas by finger & a capful. After a couple of weeks the rash was completely gone & the other areas showed marked improvement. I fully expect total elimination of the symptoms and deeply regret the hundreds of dollars wasted by the dermatologist.

I have been using this for a few weeks now and find it amazingly useful for my rosacea. I take a spoon in water, through a straw for the sake of my teeth, every morning on an empty stomach. I also wash my face with oatmeal, very gently, every night, a little hemp seed oil to remove mascara and then dab my whole face with ACV and water ( 50/50). I sometimes use a little straight on particular spots or this strange fungus PD I had around my mouth and after a week of using it cleared up.

My digestion is better and my skin is so much better. All of the bumps have cleared up and it feels cool and smooth. I don't wash my face again in the morning usually, sometimes a splash of water and a very little bit of moisturiser. Mario Badescu Control Cream is good for me or Hemp Seed oil.

The most important thing to mention is that it got much worse before it got better. I was afraid with the ACV as my face turned bright red and stung for the first few days. It had strange blotches on it and my eyes streamed! But, now two weeks later my skin is calmer than it's ever been since I've had this condition. It seems to be getting its own oils back again. So perhaps you have to persevere for a few weeks before you really know if it will help or not.

I would like to give an update on my use of Apple Cider Vinegar to treat rosacea. It has now been over two months since I first applied ACV to my face. Being though I felt like all signs of my rosacea had pretty much disappeared, I decided to resume what used to be one of my worst triggers--taking cold showers in the morning. It's now been over a week of taking a cold shower every morning and still no sign of my former rosacea whatsoever! I should add that I am also drinking lemon and baking soda twice a day, every day. With that said I have to give ACV a big YEA!

I've suffered from rosacea for over 18 years, since it first appeared when I was pregnant with my youngest daughter. After reading about ACV for rosacea relief on this site, I mixed ACV 1:1 with water and used a cotton ball to smooth it over my face, then rinsed, then repeated. WOW! In less than 2 minutes my face feels about 90% less inflamed and is much less red, except a couple of small pimples which actually got redder. All the drugstore "redness relief" formula cleansers and lotions only ever made my face more inflamed, but this actually worked! Thanks, everyone.

I suffered for several years with rosacea and found my deliverance by using ACV as suggested in the above, plus changing my diet by completely abstaining from all forms of sugar as much as possible. (just check how much is in a milk serving) That, plus a higher protein diet has made my rosacea nothing more than an a bad memory! Please try this!

Began using raw unfiltered organic apple cider vinegar on my face - two applications - one in the morning and one at bedtime. Within a few days, my rosacea was gone. I had tried using several expensive ointments recommended by my dermatologist but nothing provided more than only a temporary relief. I am delighted to say that raw unfiltered organic apple cider vinegar and I are now best friends. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!
