  3. After a couple of pool visits, I noticed a rash forming on my arms and blotchy, red patches on my face. Like a responsible adult woman, I decided to see my family doctor who told me that the condition of my skin was “concerning” and “may have been caused by chlorine.” The doctor diagnosed it as “probably rosacea” and prescribed me an antibiotic compound cream which I have to slather on my face three times a day.

  4. Nu-Stock is a cream for animals, yet some at RF have reported using it, usually by mixing it with something, i.e., zinc cream, etc., and report it works. The list is a daunting challenge to go through. However one typical example is decade plus's formula: 50%-Boudreaux's Butt Cream 40% Zinc Oxide 50%-Nu-Stock 72% Sufur 2 drops TTO In post no. 5, decade plus writes, "I have been forced to discontinue this treatment," and we never hear from this poster again. There are other formulas: flurb's post no 15 who says to "Apply even mixture of Shea Butter Moisturizer, Nu-Stock and add 1-2 drops of tea tree oil." Suggest you search for yourself.
  5. Rosacea treatments pay attention to 3 key categories: patient education, skin care, and pharmacologic interventions. Photoprotection and moisturizers are important because rosacea skin has increased transepidermal water loss. Patients should avoid triggers like wind, hot and cold temperatures, exercise, spicy foods, alcohol, hot drinks, and physical or psychological stress. Treatment that minimizes symptoms is possible, but it is more important that you learn how to live with it. Spring can be challenging for Rosacea sufferers, by Fiona Heavey, Leitrim Observer,

  9. Happy you have a regimen that works to control you Rosacea.
  10. Thanks bakersmt for your post on the AIP Diet. I am assuming that CBD means Cannabidiol? Please confirm or correct.
  11. Emax Health reports, "Studies have shown that the liver is responsible for many conditions such as type 2 diabetes and are also the cause of skin conditions such as rosacea, psoriasis and more....Causes of rosacea have been a mystery until recently. Rosacea is caused by the liver." Rosacea Is Linked to the Liver And Type 2 Diabetes And Can Be Reversed Naturally, By Nancy Mure PhD, Emax Health, Hareyan Publishing LLC However, there are no clinical papers cited in the article to connect the liver with rosacea. The cause of rosacea still remains a mystery. While there are many theories, this article only adds more confusion and misinformation.
  12. First heard about the Autoimmune Protocol Diet from JennAdeleK (post no 4) and decided it is worthy of a post here. Jenn reports that using the AIP Diet has improved her rosacea by 85%. So what is the AIP Diet? Wikipedia hasn't a listing for this yet as of March 15, 2017. Dr. Sara Gottfried says, "The Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) is a very restrictive diet that removes foods considered to be gut irritants. The AIP is a stricter version of the Paleo diet, which involves the elimination of grains, legumes, dairy, and processed foods. The AIP takes things a step (actually an entire staircase) further, and eliminates many foods which have been shown to potentially irritate and cause holes in the gut lining. The AIP is very difficult for many people to follow, but sometimes it’s temporarily necessary to fully heal a very leaky gut." So it is a very strict diet that most rosacea sufferers will never follow. Why is that? Since 1998 I have advocated the Rosacea Diet which simply explains that eating a high sugar/high carbohydrate diet triggers rosacea and very few can follow or even try this diet. The AIP Diet is even more strict, so the vast majority of rosacea sufferers will continue eating and drinking whatever they want and continue to look for a pill or topical that will control their rosacea. Changing a diet life style is extremely difficult for most rosacea sufferers. Dr. Gottfried lists the food to avoid on her web site which is listed below for your convenience: Foods eliminated on the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) Diet: Grains - wheat, rice, corn, and others; and pseudograins (millet, amaranth, teff, etc.) Legumes – all beans including peanuts, black beans, pinto beans, hummus, etc. Dairy – all sources of dairy, even raw or fermented Nuts and seeds - all nuts and seeds including cashews, almonds, quinoa, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, seed-based spices, chocolate, coffee, etc. Eggs - especially the white part of the egg, which contains inflammatory proteins Nightshades - tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, tomatillos, eggplants, goji berries and several spices Industrial seed oils - pretty much all liquid oils, except for olive and avocado oils Processed foods - basically anything that comes out of a package Alcohol - it is well established that alcohol induces a leaky gut. [4] NSAIDs - Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as Ibuprofen, aspirin, and naproxen, which cause holes to form in the gut and stomach linings. [5] Sugar, starches, fruits, yeasts, FODMAPs - Sweet, starchy, and yeast-containing foods can contribute to imbalances in the gut microflora (dysbiosis) by feeding unfavorable bacteria in the gut. They are best limited or restricted especially at first on the AIP. So give it a try if you are tough and see if this works to control your rosacea. I am confident that if you do try this for thirty days you will notice an incredible difference in your rosacea, without a doubt you will see improvement. The latest theory on rosacea is that it is a disorder of the immune system where too many cathlecidins run amuck. There has been another theory that rosacea has something to do with the gut. You may want to be up to date about the latest theories on rosacea. Yes, indeed, the AutoImmune Protocol Diet would probably help you if you actually can do it. And we all know deep inside that rosacea is a result of our poor diet over a long time of abuse.

  14. “Rosacea’s one of my fortes. So rosacea and redness, it’s due to two things. One is histamine, too much histamine in your blood that causes you to flush and blush, and it could be due to triggers, foods that contain histamines or 5-HT, which is the precursor to histamine, which comes in things like eggplant, avocado, bananas. So if you eat that every day, don’t. Once in a while is okay, but not every day. And then other things that make you flush, like red wine or hot water."

  15. Since rosacea makes skin sensitive and easily irritated, it’s important to do a small test on products to see how your skin reacts, says Dr. Wu. She suggests a patch test with new products. To do this, apply a small amount in front of your ear before bed. If there’s no redness or irritation when you wake up, apply it on the rest of your face. To seal in the most moisture, wash your face with lukewarm water (hot water can dry out your skin), then pat dry and apply your moisturizer. If your dermatologist has prescribed rosacea cream, apply the medicine first, wait a few minutes, then moisturize.
