    • Can Demodex Mites Transfer From Pets to Humans?
    • 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.

    • 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
    • Can you send me the Amazon link for the injectable one? Sent from my SM-N910V using Tapatalk
    • 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.

    • 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
    • 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?
    • I didn't read this till after my previous post. Good you are taking Tumeric and probiotics. Keep taking them. 
    • 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  
    • 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.

"In the GI tract, the microbiome is made up of trillions of microbes including bacteria and other microbes such as fungi and archaea. The skin is also colonized by an equally complex microbiome that varies with host genetic and environmental influences. Emerging research suggests that the collection of microbial communities that populate the skin and GI tract, rather than single microorganisms alone, is responsible for disease."
