  4. Can Demodex Mites Transfer From Pets to Humans?
  5. Antonia, The general consensus is that the mites on cats or dogs are a different species, however, as pointed out above, scabies and other demodex can infect a human from a pet. There should be more research on this but as it stands now the data shows that the species of mites on humans are different than on pets, generally speaking. Each mammal usually has its own species of demodex mites. The point of this post is that since we do know that mites can travel from pets to humans, there is a possibility that demodex do indeed infect humans from pets. You certainly don't want to be infected with scabies.

  7. I get a itchy skin and hives during the summer from my cat I got it so bad I had to take steriods to help clear up my skin. I dont get it from any other cats just him. I wont get rid of him he means too much to me so I tolerate it. Do you think he has these mites or? Sent from my SM-N910V using Tapatalk

  9. Everyone on here and in this support group should post something on here, in a world with people who dont have Rosacea and doctors giving you pills and cream saying there is no cure which I heard from my skin doctor often, this is a way to vent and relate and meet.

  10. Hello Apurva, I have had Rosacea since my 20's, I probably saw a skin doctor in my 30's and been on Doyxcycline for over 10 years I believe. It's been a frustrating blur but in a nutshell too long. I have a fan at work I turn on no matter how cold I am to cool down my flares. I get red at home too not just work but atleast at home its easier to deal with. I am sorry you are dealing with this too, I feel your pain believe me! They say Rosacea mainly affects fair skin, I am part spanish and german I have olive skin so that theory isn't true. Tell me about your history if you wish. Sent from my SM-N910V using Tapatalk
  11. May be It's not about eating blueberry bar and then getting red blotchy cheeks.sometimes the environmental factors are the triggers. because there are so many factors which trigger rosacea inflammation. genetic, environmental, your immune system, microbial flora of your skin, food triggers and many more. and the condition you described that when you do not eat and you just seat at work not taking stress even if in relaxed state you get red for no reason and this happens to me exactly. So I think the environmental factor may work here because with the onset of fall and continue with winter our body adjusts with the temperature called thermoregulation.You can read about it here : https://irosacea.org/forums/topic/4120-autumn-and-rosacea-flare-ups/?tab=comments#comment-5278 Could you please tell me when did your rosacea condition start? you are new to this condition or it's been a long?
  12. I didn't read this till after my previous post. Good you are taking Tumeric and probiotics. Keep taking them.
  13. Not sure which Blueberry Kind bar you are eating but I found the above Nutrition Facts Label to show you how much carbohydrate is in this bar which shows 24 grams in a 35 gram serving. You can subtract the 2.5 grams of dietary fiber since fiber has no significant energy to consider.* So technically the above serving is 21.5 grams of carbohydrate in a 35 gram serving. That means this bar is 61% carbohydrate. This is a high carbohydrate food. When you carefully go through the Nutrition Facts Label for everything you eat in a day, you are probably, without a doubt eating a high carbohydrate diet. There is ample evidence that sugar/carbohydrate is a rosacea trigger in anecdotal reports. For that matter, any proposed rosacea trigger is based upon surveys or anecdotal reports, therefore, listing sugar/carbohydrate as a rosacea trigger is just as valid as any other proposed rosacea trigger, no matter who makes the list. So usually the question is what should you eat for thirty days to see if reducing sugar/carbohydrate improves your skin? Eat high protein and fat. Eating high protein/fat for thirty days poses absolutely no health risk contrary to what you might learn from any source. After the thirty days you can then decide based upon what you learn whether this improves your rosacea and other issues. This will not be easy because sugar is an addiction. So you simply have to balance whether having your skin issues improve is worth the effort to get off of sugar for just thirty days. Also since you are taking doxycycline, you will need to build up your good flora with probiotics, which is now an accepted medical treatment for rosacea. Short term antibiotics for rosacea may be required to control rosacea, but long term antibiotic treatment for rosacea can produce some unwanted side effects and risks. You need to decide whether taking long term antibiotics are worth those side effects and risks. Probiotics offer an alternative. How long did you use Soolantra? Why did you stop using it? It is good you are taking supplements, herbals and vitamins. Have you read this post? Don't give up, you will find a way to control your rosacea and other issues. *To learn why fiber is not a significant source of energy, read the article, Carbohydrate Not Essential For Human Survival
  14. Methanobrevibacter smithii image courtesy of Cedars Sinai The human microbiome includes the skin which contains a number of different microbes. [1] One microbe that has generally been totally ignored is archea, which has never been ruled out as having anything to do with rosacea. "Methanobrevibacter smithii is the predominant archaeon in the human gut." The general public has little if any knowledge of this microbe which has been known to exist in the human microbiome for some time now. "Archaea are a major part of Earth's life. They are part of the microbiota of all organisms. In the human microbiota, they are important in the gut, mouth, and on the skin. They may play roles in the carbon cycle and the nitrogen cycle." [2] The chief reason that archea is basically totally ignored as having anything to do with rosacea is that there is no known archea human pathogen. Furthermore, due to the bias the scientific community has towards bacteria which focuses research on bacteria ignoring most of the other microbes, including archea, little is known about archea. "A deeper knowledge of human microbiome composition and microbe-host interactions will contribute to clarify the mechanism of development of rosacea and possibly will provide innovative therapeutic approaches." [3] Basically we have no idea what role archea plays in the skin microbiome due to a lack of investigation into this subject. Hence, little is known of what role archea may play in rosacea. There is absolutely no motive to investigate this since who would fund such a study? Hopefully someday some research will discover the role archea plays in the human microbiome and whatever revelations are discovered may alter our understanding of archea. Do you want to fund such a study? Could 10K members of the RRDi get together and each donate one dollar to fund such a study? Only with your help could we reach such a goal. Think about it.

  15. A paper written in 2017 about diet and rosacea never once mentions sugar/carbohydrate as a rosacea trigger and parrots the diet triggers promoted by the NRS while admitting that "Dietary triggers are also frequently cited by patients, although there is a lack of research in this area. In one survey by the National Rosacea Society of over 400 patients, 78% had altered their diet due to rosacea. Of this group, 95% reported a subsequent reduction in flares." The NRS has never listed sugar/carbohydrate as a rosacea trigger, even though the number of anecdotal reports continue to grow that indeed sugar/carbohydrate is just as valid a rosacea trigger as any of the other NRS proposed triggers.

  17. Hello thank you for replying. I just ate a Blueberry Kind Bar and got red blotchy cheeks, so much for "good grains". I tried Finacea, Mirvaso, trying Soolantra all generic brands. Natural products I tried pumpkin seed extract, licorice root, Madagascar Centella, vitamins a thru all. I am not sure I have those 2 autoimmune diseases but a skin doctor told me maybe I have one of those too being I flare get red no matter what I eat and even if I dont eat I sit at work and can get red for mo reason (not stress). I am taking Doxycycline right now my doctor tried to switch me over to Minocycline which was a nightmare my skin freaked out so I am back on Doxycycline. I cant even find a local doctor to help or make a diagnosis if I have them besides Rosacea. I am premenopausal and I hear that as a excuse from doctors. I dont see why no matter what I do or dont do my skin is like this. I wil try no sugar. Sent from my SM-N910V using Tapatalk
  18. Welcome to the RRDi community support. If you are suffering from rosacea plus gastatory face flushing* and erythromelagia, we can only empathize with your situation. Your condition is extreme and quite unusual. Not many rosaceans are suffering as much as you are suffering. Have you tried avoiding sugar and carbohydrate or at the very least reduced your intake to see if this improves your situation? Sugar is the fire that burns rosacea. It is not expensive to avoid sugar, in fact, you will save money avoiding sugar. Basically, all you do it eat high protein/fat for thirty days to see if your skin improves. Eating high protein/fat for just thirty days and drinking lots of water is not a health risk since it is only temporary. You may learn that you need more protein/fat instead of the high sugar/carbohydrate to control your rosacea. For example, you may not know how eating macaroni and cheese is a high carbohydrate meal. Our bodies are mostly water, protein and fat and carbohydrate only takes a very small percentage of our body mass. It is simply something that you can rule out to see if this helps your skin. In order to recommend topicals, we would need to know what topicals you have tried. Also what oral medications or vitamins/supplements or any other oral treatments have you tried? How long have you been suffering from this? * "Gustatory flushing affects both sides of the face and is associated with excessive salivation, tear production and nasal secretion with no history of parotid gland injury. This may be reproduced by chewing a chilli pepper and holding it in the mouth for 5 minutes." Flushing, DermNet NZ

  20. Hello I am new to this site and suffer with Rosacea plus I believe one of those other autoimmune diseases. No matter what I eat either my nose gets super red or chin or cheeks. There is absolutely no help available for us. I am tired of being on antibodotics and creams that hardly help or dry my skin out. You would think they would have discovered some cure by now. Rosacea is sadly overlooked and the suffering of anyone who has it. I understand everyones frustration and feelings. I dont know about you but I tried a gluten free diet, no dairy/cheese not only is that expensive it didnt help much. Does anyone else have any ideas or suggestions? I hope you are all okay and know you are not alone! [emoji171] Sent from my SM-N910V using Tapatalk
  21. Related Articles Characterization and Analysis of the Skin Microbiota in Rosacea: Impact of Systemic Antibiotics. J Clin Med. 2020 Jan 09;9(1): Authors: Woo YR, Lee SH, Cho SH, Lee JD, Kim HS Abstract Systemic antibiotics are extensively used to control the papules and pustules of rosacea. Hence, it is crucial to understand their impact on the rosacea skin microbiota which is thought to be perturbed. The purpose of this study was to compare the makeup and diversity of the skin microbiota in rosacea before and after taking oral antibiotics. We also compared the skin microbiota at baseline according to age and rosacea severity. A longitudinal cohort study was performed on 12 rosacea patients with papules/pustules and no recent use of oral and topical antimicrobials/retinoids. Patients were prescribed oral doxycycline, 100 mg, twice daily for six weeks. Skin areas on the cheek and nose were sampled for 16S ribosomal RNA gene sequencing at baseline, and after six weeks of doxycycline treatment. Eleven females and one male aged 20-79 (median 51) with a median Investigator's Global Assessment score of 3 (moderate) were enrolled. At baseline, Staphylococcus epidermidis was the most dominant species followed by Cutibacterium acnes (formerly Propionibacterium acnes). In the 60 Over-age group, the prevalence of Cutibacterium acnes was lower than that of the 60 & Under-age group. Rosacea severity increased with age and was associated with a decrease in the relative abundance of Cutibacterium acnes and an increase of Snodgrassella alvi. Across all subjects, antibiotic treatment reduced clinical rosacea grades and was associated with an increase in the relative abundance of Weissella confusa (P = 0.008, 95% CI 0.13% to 0.61%). Bacterial diversity (alpha diversity) was not significantly altered by antibiotics treatment. Principal coordinates analysis showed mild clustering of samples by patient (ANOSIM, Analysis of Similarity, R = 0.119, P = 0.16) and scant clustering with treatment (ANOSIM, R = 0.002; P = 0.5). In conclusion, we believe that rosacea has a unique age-dependent characteristic (i.e., severity). Although we were not able to pinpoint a causative microbiota, our study provides a glimpse into the skin microbiota in rosacea and its modulation by systemic antibiotics.
