  1. "Common of adverse effects seen in our study after applying topical corticosteroids and acne or acneiform eruptions was the most common side effects, similar to other authors’ data. A study showed rosacea to be more common than acne. In our study 89 patients suffered from TSDF, a term coined by Sarasswat A., Lahiri K. et al. Various other adverse effects, such as erythema, telengiectasias, dyspigmentation and perioral dermatitis was also seen." J Dermatol Case Rep. 2017 Mar 31; 11(1): 5–8.

  4. "Allergan plc, (NYSE: AGN), a leading global pharmaceutical company, announced that Emmy® and Tony® award-winning actress and singer, Kristin Chenoweth will kick off the "Less Red, More You" campaign today at an exclusive event in New York City.

  5. "When treating rosacea, I always prescribe topical agents first and, if necessary, add an oral medication. I wean my patients off of oral medication as soon as possible and use a maintenance topical regimen to keep their skin clear," says Carin H. Gribetz, MD, assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York. A Side-by-Side Look at the Most Common Rosacea Treatments, by Elizabeth Szaluta, MPH, Medscape
  6. A Link to One Type in Particular Has Been Established. Patients with rosacea often experience flushing and paroxysmal burning of the face and chest—a phenotype termed "neurogenic rosacea." Intriguingly, patients with neurogenic rosacea also may have a higher prevalence of migraines (recurrent headaches and nausea, triggered by light or sound). Graeme M. Lipper, MD, Medscape, News & Perspective > Viewpoints Prevalence and Risk of Migraine in Patients With Rosacea: A Population-Based Cohort Study Egeberg A, Ashina M, Gaist D, Gislason GH, Thyssen JP J Am Acad Dermatol. 2017;76:454-458.
  7. Thought I would update my Soolantra thread. I stopped Soolantra as you can review on February 13. I then got some samples from my dermatologist with the following prescription treatments: Avar-e Green Color Corrective Emolilent Cream (sodium sulfacetamide 10%, sulfur 5%) Ovace Plus Cream (sodium sulfacetamide 10%) Ovace Plus Lotion (sodium sulfacetamide 9.8%) My dermatologist gave me a number of Soolantra samples too! In March, April and through today I would try the above three samples alternatively as well as use Soolantra once in a while (about once a week). I have found that the Avar-e Green seems to work the best for me. However the other day I got a sunburn because I go to the beach and swim just about every day and really got burnt. Not good for rosacea. But I have enclosed some update photos. I will continue to use this thread to post my regimen.
  8. I see. I know that low carb/high protein helps control my rosacea. I think that Soolantra works for some just like just about every other treatment or rosacea. I do think it is worth trying out since so many say it works for them. Soolantra is definitely one of the treatments in the armamentarium for rosacea.
  9. "Rosacea can be referred to as “adult acne” and this is a different entity altogether – rosacea is an inflammatory condition that can cause redness and/or acne-like bumps on the face. It can be triggered by sun exposure, stress, spicy foods and alcohol. There are topical and oral treatment options available depending on disease severity."

However, the cause of this unusual growth of nose condition is unknown, but it commonly develops after rosacea begins on the face between the ages of 25 and 50. She tried every medicine prescribed by the doctor but nothing worked. She was suffering from an unfortunate medical condition. After her interview being telecasted on TV, she was offered free surgery by Dr. Ann Zedlitz to correct the growth of her nose! And today, after her surgery she looks like this now!"

  12. Laser is usually the preferred way to remove spider veins. Joe Niamtu, III, MD, show how he does it with the handy dandy Iridex 940 laser:
  13. Tom Busby, expert extraordinaire at RF, wrote "VeinWave, or the newer version, VeinGogh, will remove facial spider veins. A needle about the size of a human hair, with a small electric current, heats up the vein and coagulates the blood. Then the blood is reabsorbed and the skin is clear." 4th June 2013 03:32 AM Post #7 "Vein wave is a through the skin radiofrequency treatment for small visible veins. This has very little recovery and little bruising and works fairly well, the main issue is to find an office that has a machine made within the last year (only 5 in US) as previous models were underpowered and may not have resulted in complete treatment." Jordan Knepper, MD Ann Arbor Vascular Surgeon, realself, July 26th, 2016 "There are many ways to remove surface veins. I would suggest laser therapy instead of vein wave to eliminate facial spider veins. Laser can be more powerful than RF." Dr. Karamanoukian, Los Angeles, realself, January 4, 2017 Albert Malvehy, MD, treats this unwanted occurrence using foam sclerotherapy.
