    The RRDi is looking for volunteer professional or amateur grant writers who would be willing to apply for corporate grants in behalf of the institute. Our volunteers have received three educational grants from Galderma, and if you are willing to learn how to become a grant writer, jump through all the hoops Galderma requires you to jump through, you could received a portion of the grant money as a service to the RRDi since this is allowed in our charter. If you are a professional grant writer who has rosacea please consider spending some volunteer time organizing the RRDi's amateur grant writers committee. We prefer grant writers who have rosacea but if you don't have rosacea we still warmly invite you to write grants for our non profit organization. Anyone who wants to join the RRDi as a corporate member may volunteer to learn how to write grants as a volunteer amateur for the RRDi and become in time a professional grant writer. Please join. After logging into your account, contact us that you want to write grants for the RRDi. We will steer you into the correct direction, but basically you will be a volunteer writing grants for the RRDi and if you receive a grant you will be compensated. You may also receive a letter of recommendation if you volunteer for our non profit writing grants, get compensated, and help our non profit receive grants for rosacea research.

    10 Things You Wish You Knew About Grant Writing

    • A rare condition involving SD is eyebrow hairloss. Sickening started an interesting thread on this subject if you are suffering from this disorder. A similar thread was started by angelstar. Sometimes it can be confused with Frontal Fibrosis Alopecia.
    • StatPearls Book. 2020 01 Authors: Abstract Lupus miliaris disseminatus faciei (LMDF) is an idiopathic granulomatous disease affecting facial skin primarily. Nosologically, it is on a spectrum of facial granulomatous dermatoses and shares overlapping features with rosacea and sarcoidosis. In most cases, this disorder resolves spontaneously within several years but can leave potentially disfiguring scarring. The name derives from a historic putative association with tuberculosis, as discussed below. More recent authors have proposed adopting the term facial idiopathic granulomas with regressive evolution (FIGURE) instead of the entrenched LMDF. However, it does not appear that a name change has been widely accepted.[1] Older terms for a similar facial granulomatous dermatosis include micropapular tuberculid, Lewandowsky’s eruption, and lupoid rosacea.[2] Acne agminata has been used to refer to similar lesions in the axilla.

    • (1) Diet First, keep in mind this recommendation is only for thirty days. After the thirty days, go back to eating whatever you want. What you are probably eating is mostly carbohydrate since the typical American diet is high carbohydrate. Carbohydrate is simply different forms of sugar. There are absolutely no nutrients in carbohydrate, none. Carbohydrate is simply carbon, hydrogen and oxygen (absolutely no vitamins, minerals, or any nutrients). Sugar is the fire that inflames rosacea.  For example, oats, brown rice, fruit, sweet potato have significant carbohydrate. It is extremely difficult to cut out all carbohydrate. But if you can reduce your carbohydrate to no more than 30 grams a day for 30 days to see if this improves your rosacea, then you will know. What will you lerarn? Sugar/carbohydrate is a rosacea trigger.  If you do see improvement within the thirty days, at the end of the thirty days go back to your oats, brown rice, fruit, sweet potato or whatever you are eating and see what happens. This simple diet just for thirty days will either work or it won't in improving your rosacea. Please read a list of anecdotal reports that this actually works.  To help you understand how to figure out how many grams of carbohydrate you may be eating, just take a bowl of oats which contains 27 grams of carbohydrate in a half a cup. So if you decide to eat that half a cup of oats, you now only have 3 grams of carbohydrate to your 30 gram limit for the day. The only way you can do this is stick to broccoli since one cup (91 grams) of raw broccoli contains 6 grams of carbs. Kale is ok too, since one cup (67 grams) of raw kale contains 7 grams of carbs. You can have a lot of broccoli and kale in your day and still keep within the 30 gram limit. So anything that goes into your mouth that you digest, simply watch how many grams of carbohydrate and limit it to 30 grams a day. And watch how many carbohydrate is in anything you drink! Liquid or any food, 30 gram carbohydrate limit. Only for 30 days. 30 grams/30 days. So what do you eat? Protein and Fat, as much as you want, no limit. And remember, when someone or some authority says eating high protein/fat is bad, the reply is, 'this is just for thirty days.' Thirty days on a high protein/diet is not bad. No one can cite any clinical paper that eating high protein/fat for just thirty days is any health risk. Remember, just thirty days. No risk. And if you like meat, fish, and chicken it will be easier. If you are a vegan, it will be more difficult to find the protein/fat to eat but it can be done. The Rosacea Diet has a vegan 30 day diet. Remember, this is only for thirty days. At the end of the thirty days you can then eat whatever you want. Eat whatever sugar and carbohydrate you want and as much as you want and see what happens. Does your rosacea return when you eat high sugar/carbohydate? If so, you have learned something. Then you decide what to do about this. Not everyone chooses this course because it is so difficult. Why? Because sugar is addictive. Your choice. (2) Topical As for a topical, recommend the ZZ cream. Before you use, be sure to apply a dab of the ZZ cream on your inner wrist and see if your skin turns red? If so, you are allergic to the ZZ cream. Remember that if you use the ZZ cream it gets worse before it gets better.  It takes at least a month to see any improvement with the ZZ cream and three to four months for clearance. 'Getting worse before it gets better' is a common occurrence in medicine, not just in using the ZZ cream. Conclusion Have you noticed I repeat myself? Indulge me since I have been doing this for years. These two simple treatments may work to control your rosacea if you reduce your sugar/carbohydrate to 30 grams a day for 30 days and use the ZZ cream as a topical. 
    • Hi Kara,  Welcome to the RRDi. It would be good to know if your partner did get a diagnosis of rosacea (or what exactly) and what particular antibiotic and how much, whether low dose or high dose, I.e., how many milligrams per day? Is your partner applying any topical(s)?  The laser mentioned in the article in this thread, pulsed dye, has been around for years.     Coherent model 899 ring dye laser, with rhodamine 6G dye, pumped with a 514 nm argon laser. The laser is tuned somewhere around 580 nm. Photo taken by Han-Kwang at the AMOLF Institute in Amsterdam, Netherlands. P - image courtesy of Wikipedia Commons By the way, the article is an abstract made available through an RSS feed from PubMed published in Dermatologic Therapy. So this pulsed dye laser is usually in either a dermatology or cosmetic surgeon clinic and as you can imagine expensive. One treatment with an experienced practitioner as you can imagine is expensive, between $350 to $600 US Dollars and usually three or more treatments are required. Most insurance companies in the USA will cover such treatment if they are designated a medical diagnosis but usually such treatments are considered cosmetic and are not covered. I imagine the same conditions exist in the UK regarding whether insurance covers such laser treatments or not. You would have to ask. Most Rosaceans who rave about Laser treatment have to spend the money out of pocket. There are others who have negative experience with laser. By the way, some Rosaceans have now purchased their own light device, sometimes laser, others purchase LED or IPL devices since they are now available to the pubic. There is a learning curve using these devices and you can easily damage your skin so if you decide to go that route take care. Our store has some listed in broad band light. Using laser is just one of the many light devices under the treatment called photo dynamic therapy.  The article in this thread used the pulsed dye laser along with intradermal botulinum toxin type-A, a particular botulinum used in cosmetics. This treatment is also expensive and the practitioner should have experience using it since you can imagine if you were his first patient you might feel uneasy.  The article concludes this combination of treatment “demonstrated high efficacy and satisfaction rate with this combined approach and a low side-effect profile.”  If it cost several thousand dollars, you would expect such results. Just remember that you sign off on a lot of waivers and notices that you are warned of the risks and side effects of laser and botulinum treatment.  Dr. Braun performs Botox Injections on a client at Vancouver Laser & Skin Care Skin. Botox Injections temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, crow’s feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck. By temporarily blocking the nerve impulses, the muscles that cause wrinkles relax, giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. - image courtesy of Wikimedia Commons There are clinical papers showing improvement in rosacea using Botox, I.e., Botox for Rosacea. Depending on what your partner is suffering with, recommend your partner read our welcome page or our newbies page. Some have found that simply reducing sugar/carbohydrate in the diet improves rosacea or whatever skin issue along with the topical ZZ cream.
    • Hi i read your article and find it very interesting. My partner has a very aggressive form of rosacea that sometimes spreads up to the eye. Most of the time he is on antibiotics but as soon as he stops the flushing starts again. Is this treatment that you mentioned available in London???? If not where can it be done.
