  7. Radiofrequency (RF) is used in treating catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation, coronary sinus ostium (CSOS), lung tumors, Lumbar Spinal Stenosis, hemodialysis (HD) patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), hepatocellular carcinoma, and the list just keeps going. RF is a standard medical treatment for many diseases and conditions. There are reports published that RF is used to treat rosacea. In medicine, "Radio frequencies at non-ablation energy levels are sometimes used as a form of cosmetic treatment that can tighten skin, reduce fat (lipolysis), or promote healing." Wikipedia "A technology called ELOS (electro-optical synergy) combines pulsed light or laser with bipolar radiofrequency....The results of this study suggest that the combination of optical and RF energies is effective for the treatment of rosacea. ELOS, as well as other vascular-focused lasers and light sources, provides an important treatment option for patients who fail medical therapy, reach a plateau in their response to medical therapy, or wish to avoid chronic oral therapy." [1] "Radiofrequency therapy was as effective as pulsed dye laser in treating rosacea, particularly in patients with papulopustular rosacea, according to published study results" [2] "Fractional microneedling radiofrequency (FMR) therapy resulted in modest but clinically significant improvements in the appearance and inflammation of rosacea in a small study of patients with mild to moderate rosacea." [3] Resolve Skin Laser Clinics in the United Kingdom specializes in RF for Rosacea. A "new hand-held device fires a light beam, but also emits radio frequency energy waves... [and] fires energy waves and light has been developed to treat rosacea and other skin conditions."

  9. Dr. Tan Study on the Psychological Impact of Rosacea
  10. "People look at someone with rosacea and conclude the red face is from anger, embarrassment or boozing — it’s little wonder that sufferers of this common skin condition feel stigmatized. Now recently published research co-authored by Windsor dermatologist Dr. Jerry Tan confirms what he regularly hears from his rosacea patients: Having this condition — characterized by facial redness, pimples and sometimes thickened red skin in the nasal area — frequently leads to embarrassment, loss of confidence, sadness, depression and despair." Study confirms the emotional pain rosacea inflicts, says Windsor dermatologist, by Brian Cross, Windsor Star
  11. Natural Remedies for Rosacea? By THE NEW YORK TIMES
  12. "I tried every cream imaginable; the list of creams I didn't try is shorter. I went for 13 years without a full remission; started getting the rash really bad when I was a handsome young man, and it really was tough on my self esteem. It did a number on my face, and began to cover my scalp too. The only thing that finally worked for me with long lasting, real remission, is plaquenil. My only regret is that I didn't try it sooner. Much, much sooner. In hindsight, I think it was likely lupus all along, and my experience really has me questioning how many other people with "rosaceae" are just lupus sufferers. I would encourage folks here to do an honest self audit to reconcile any symptoms that may be similar to lupus and connect the dots. And whatever you do, whatever your gut tells you, please don't give up on finding a lasting resolution. Even if I don't have lupus, the treatment for it resolved my horrible, red, burning, painful, embarrassing rash. I don't really care what we call it because I'm able to look in the mirror again. And Im feeling my age again. I hope everyone here finds a lasting remission. Don't stop until you do." Duff Man post no 221 on 4/17/2017
  13. "It’s also important to take a holistic approach to your lifestyle if you suffer from rosacea. Eating an anti-inflammatory diet can help reduce flare-ups.

  14. Mistica at RF reported about Dawn M Lamako who posted her treatment for PD using Sugardyne (sugar as an antimicrobial) which she explains with incredible detailed references to documents and photos. Be sure to scroll all the way down to see Dawn's photos of the treatment. "Sucrose monocaprate showed the strongest antibacterial activity against all tested bacteria, especially Gram-positive bacteria."

Zhao L, Zhang H, Hao T, Li S. "There are several ways in which salt and sugar inhibit microbial growth. The most notable is simple osmosis, or dehydration." "In summary, we presented in this report a simple and efficient approach for the preparation of sugar derived Schiff bases. The synthesized D-glucosamine derivatives were shown to possess biological activity when evaluated for antimicrobial activity against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacterial and fungi strains."
