Re: Rosacea

I will state that laser treatment did a lot of good reducing my "background" redness, but not the larger broken blood vessels. Still, there was an improvement. I had three treatments in relatively quick succession, and go in every so often for "touch ups".

I stay away from aggravators (other than spicy food and booze) such as sun and cold. I always wear sunscreen and took up vintage hat wearing.

I've been hit or miss regarding creams. However, I do have to say that after trying everything (Dr. Haushka, more expensive stuff, etc. etc.), that a product called CeraVe (it comes as a cleanser, lotion and cream) actually works the best. It's relatively cheap as far as these "cures" go and was recommended to me by my hoity toity dermatologist back in Chicago. Basically, she said it leaves lipids on your face instead of stripping them during the cleansing processes. No lipids = very tight and uncomfortable face for those of us with the problem.

Every time I'm back in the States, I buy more. I know that amazon.co.uk and amazon.de have the more intensive cream.

Good luck. It's a lifelong struggle and a pain in the arse.

Re: Rosacea

Thought I'd follow up from 3 months ago.. been using 'skinoren' on prescription from the skin doc... and there's been a marked improvement in reducing redness... seems like it takes a long time and you have to put it on at least once a day every day.

Have been there , wasted thousands in creams,pills, dermatologist visits, facials etc..Nothing seems to work PERMANENTLY. it just leaves me in despair. Never too late but i found that reason for any skin ailments in ADULTHOOD is blood/lymph toxins in the body which the liver cannot handle (and is overflowed) body is trying to eliminate through the skin which is a big organ for elimination..and hence these nasty acne or any skin problems. So a natural way claimed to get rid of toxins, clean the organs,is this cleanse am having high hopes on it ..
And what can i do to avoid toxins??

Re: Rosacea

Yes, as I mentioned at the beginning of this thread, Skinoren helped me as well.

Re: Rosacea

They have been marketing a low dose tetracycline pill in the US for Rosasea. I wouldn't take doxycycline on a daily basis for something like that, it could have worse consequences than benefits but some choose to take it...

There are some creams you could try, such as elecon, metronidazole or elidel

re: drinking piss
I met a guy the other evening to said he drank his own piss. I thought he was OK until he said this, after that point, I figured he must be a bit off his rocker. I was not aware that this is so common. Two times in 2 weeks i've heard of people who drink piss.
