I have been reading through the site on rosacea and it appears that I don't have the same symtoms as others. My neck and chest are red but I have no bumps. I have been drinking 1 tbsp of ACV mixed with either water or grape juice daily for the last three weeks. I have also been taking supplements (Lysine, Zinc, D3) daily for the last month. I'm afraid to apply ointments to my neck and chest fearing that it could become worse. Spring is now fast approaching and I can no longer wear turtlenecks to hide it. Does anyone have any advice for getting rid of the redness? I have tried laser treatments and it didn't help.
I have had rosacea for about 1 & 1/2 years. I am 55 and always had very clear skin all my life, never bothered by lots of acne like most teens. So it has been very frustrating and depressing for me to have this nasty stuff on my face. I am allergic to many antibiotics so I never took that "remedy". My dermatologist confirmed the diagnosis of rosacea and gave me a couple of perscriptions for topical products. I used them until they ran out but never renewed them as I did not see any improvements. I have tried several natural products: aloe, hydrogen peroxside, rubbing alcohol, a tea tree oil acne treatment and some products I got off the web that are all natural. Nothing is working and it just seems to get worse. I am going to try your ACV and HP recipe.
I often feel like putting a bag over my face when I leave the house. I hate the way I look with these "pimples" on my face. I wanted to pass along a couple of tips. Never scrub your face with a cloth. This tends to aggravate the rosacea. I always just use my fingers and just pat my face dry - never rub. Secondly, ladies, try using a makeup that is all mineral and in powder form. I use the original mineral makeup and it never clogs your pores and it covers the bumps very well.
I'll leave feedback after I have tried your solutions.
Hi, I'm new at this site, so please forgive me if I make a boo boo.
This posting is regarding rosacea.
I've been suffering with what seems to be rosacea for ahout 4 years now. My derm dr. is not 100% sure. Pathologist says it could be rosacea or whatever else I forgot. Dr. gave me metrogel and other topicals, a whole bunch of them, but nothing helped, except to make the matter worse. I quit going to the doctors for this problem.
Currently, I'm using only Jojoba oil on my face, because my face has become so sensitive to anything, I can't even put Zenmed cream for sensitive skin.
I have severe rheumatoid arthritis, for which I take strong medications, such as Humira, methotrexate, prednisone, plaquenil. With all 4 combined, my sed rate is still soaring above 100.
Recently, I found out that I was heavily mercury poisoned, as well as aluminum poisoned. That is probably causing me all sorts of medical problems.
After removing the amalgams, I went to a NAET acupuncture treatment to help elliminate allergies. After each treatment, my face flared up, like my capillaries might burst, and after 5 sessions, my face has gotten so bad, developed chronic situations, and I'm now in desperate search for cure.
My problem is that I react to almost every treatment, supplement, and remedies. (it is always my face that react. Why?) So I'm being very careful.
My detox specialist says that (he uses kinesiology) my face is a result of aluminum poisoning, and that the toxins are coming out of my facial skin. So then he gave me some tinctures to take care of the problem, and now my face is all swollen like moon face.
I would like to try some of the remedies mentioned here, but I don't know which one is best, since I am so sensitive to everything. Any suggestions? Any advice?
Just to give you more idea, I've been going to colonics regulary for about a year now. My diet is pretty much vegetarian, and my Ph is.. as far as my saliva is concerned, it's about 6.8.
After the NAET crisis, I seem to have developed ocular rosacea. This scares me. I'd appreciate your help!!!
