I had severe rosacea. I think it was due to overheating. I was breastfeeding, and wanted to get a relief so fast. I had this severe for 3 months in summer season. My eyes were severely affected so was my skin. I used sulfur gel over the counter for rosacea, washed my face 3 times a day with salicylic acid face washes over the counter and finally tried a diluted tea tree oil and I think it killed off all the mites. I leave it for about 30 minutes, then wash my face, then apply the sulfur gel. I did this three times a day and once at night. It dried my skin a little bit, but I am almost done with this. Just wanted to let you know to try tea tree oil, but make sure it's really diluted. I used a few drops in 8oz of water topically and wiped the affected areas.

Been using tea tree oil for rosacea about one week. Symptoms at first got worse, but then cleared up. I suspect the tto killed the mites, causing reaction, then, it starting clearing up.

After reading several cures I reached for what I had on hand that very night at 12 midnight to help me start to cure my Rosacea. I had dandruff shampoo with tea tree oil that has worked great on my scalp when I need it. I applied it to my face on the rosacea areas allowed it to tingle for at the most 3 min. Removed with a wet wash cloth and fell over in the morning as I looked in the mirror and all the small areas were clear. The big blotches are shrinking and are very small. Overnight I saw results. You need to try any dandruff shampoo with Tea Tree oil. I used one from Arbonne. Only because thats what I had at midnight and wanted to try something to help me clear up my skin. Thanks everyone who has posted what has worked for you. From all your ideas I tried one and found the magic of my skin under that ugly redness. Keep posting, we learn from each other. Tonight will be day 4 of washing with shampoo and I love it.

I have tried many things for the rosacea on my nose. It was getting to the point where I was thinking WC Fields every time I looked in the mirror. While treating my toes with fungi cure I thought why not, so I started paining it on my nose morning and night for 2 weeks. The first night I put it on my nose I noticed that my hairline and my eyebrows started to get itchy right away. I suspect I sent the little bugs scattering on my face. Its now cleared up and I follow up with tea tree oil at bedtime and every time it gets itchy. I put the tea tree on my eyebrows and scalp line and ears as well. Now 6 weeks later and I can see the faint scar that was not visible after the break out. No more WC fields when I look in the mirror, what a relief. I have my old or new nose back.

WARNING

When I was panting the underside of my nose the bristles flicked upwards splashing a tiny bit in my eye and it really burned. Be very careful around your eyes.

Good luck to all.

Tea tree oil can help rosacea. Not sure if it can erradicate it completely, but it does help kill off the adult mites. You need to use it religiously, every day. (I use it several times a day!) Since the demodex mites keep reproducing you need to keep applying TTO to keep the next generation from growing into adults. For example, if you only apply it one time, say, you may kill some for that day but the lifecycle of these stubborn mites is about 15-20 days. Also, try not to wear foundation makeup during this time, you need to get this out of your skin! Also, don't "feed" the mites by applying any nutritional things such as coconut oil, and other vitamin-rich lotions. I'm still doing research but this is the best natural way I have found so far. Try it!

I read a suggestion about using tea tree oil to help with rosacea, so I tried it. I'd used it occasionally for pimples, but I had never tried putting it all over my face. It worked like a charm! I still have a little redness which can't be helped because of the summer heat, but I haven't had any break-outs and my face looks much better than it did using the expensive creams.

I am shocked and amazed after thousands of dollars spent on TCA peels, medicated creams and Dr. prescribed Retin A etc,.that I find Tea Tree oil to be an overnight wonder (Literally) for the treatment of my Rosacea. All my redness was gone after 2 nights of applying the oil directly all over my face. Acne and redness is completely gone!! This stuff is awesome! Got mine at Sprouts health food store. I highly recommend to anyone suffering from acne or acne rosacea.
