I found this remedy for Rosacea on Earth Clinic and it has worked well for me. L-Lysine 3000 MG per day in divided doses on an empty stomach. Along with each divided dose take 1000 MG of vitamin C. I like Sodium Ascorbate. It's buffered and supposedly is absorbed easily, but any buffered form of C should be fine. My red bumps started to clear within 3 days. My cheeks have remained red, but the bumps were 95% gone after 1 week. I am also aware of food trigers. Mine seems to be eggs if I eat them for several days in a row.

Vitimin C worked wonders for my mild rosacea, sensitive skin and allergies. It was cleared in about a week or so. I can also confirm the amount I took was about 4000mg a day. After clearing it up I haven't been consistent in taking the vitamin C as regulary and only take about 2000mg when I remember to, overall it's kept the condition at bay but if I feel my skin getting sensitive again, I go back onto 4000 mg a day and it clears things up again.

I have had a red rash on my face (rosea) that comes and goes for the past 25 or 30 years. Recently, it's become worse and even appeared to be infected. I had been using medicated creams, but that was not working anymore. I found a rosea cure on this site only last week using vitamin C and L-Lysine. It worked and my rash was gone in a few days. Rather than 4000 mg. of each a day, the dose i used was 1500 mg. vitamin C and 1500 mg. L-Lysine three times a day.

Lysine and Vitamin C cured rosacea in 2 days. I've had Rosacea for years. Whenever I quit drinking coffee my Rosacea will disappear in 7 days. However I have had a hard time quitting coffee. My face was sore and continually red.I don't have any noticable enlarged veins from Rosacea. I tried 4 grams each of Lysine and Vitamin C in one dose. Nothing happened. The next day I tried it in divided doses. It worked within 12 hours..Try it. Try a higher dose if this amount doesn't work. Vitamin C alone won't work.


Vitamin C and Lysine

I have had broken capillaries on my face and neck since I was in my teens. Recently I read that broken capillaries anywhere on the body could be a sign of heart disease as they show that smaller capillaries in the body are under stress and possibly blocked with plaque. Since I have a family history of heart disease (mother, grandmother, grandfather and two great aunts) I started taking 6 grams of vitamin c and 3 grams of lysine daily. This is the basic Pauling protocol for the prevention of arteriosclerosis. It has been three weeks since I started taking this and the thread veins on my face and down near my ankles have nearly disappeared. Also my feet are warmer. Both of these supplements can be bought cheaply in bulk powder form, so for anyone who has a family history of heart disease or broken capillaries this may well be worth trying. For the record, I have taken large doses of vitamin c, complete with biovflavanoids and rutin, for years. The vitamin c by itself has never helped. It was only after I added the lysine that they virtually disappeared.
