  1. The answer to the question is to social media platforms. This post is about rosacea and social media platforms where all the rosaceans have gone and is an in-depth deep dive into this subject. Before we look at some of the data on this it would be good to go back in time and look at the history of the internet and rosacea, before the advent of social media. Sixteen years ago when the RRDi was founded by rosacea sufferers with the motive to form a grassroots patient advocacy group that could have a united voice to the medical community who at that time didn’t take any rosacea
  2. "Patients with rosacea have elevated levels of cathelicidin and elevated levels of stratum corneum tryptic enzymes (SCTEs). Cathelicidin is cleaved into the antimicrobial peptide LL-37 by both kallikrein 5 and kallikrein 7 serine proteases. Excessive production of LL-37 is suspected to be a contributing cause in all subtypes of Rosacea. Antibiotics have been used in the past to treat rosacea, but antibiotics may only work because they inhibit some SCTEs." [1] "In mice, injection of onabotulinum toxin A significantly reduced LL-37-induced skin erythema, mast cell degranulation, and mRNA ex
  3. I decided to try this and bought the Tea Tree Essential Oil for $9 shown above and added one tablespoon into six ounces of baby shampoo and just tried my first treatment to my scalp and face. Kept this mixture on my scalp for five minutes and rinsed. Will update my progress.

    Just made this video about Rx treatments for rosacea.
  5. "Arthralgia and myalgia had the same percentage as reported by the control group and in normal populations; however, Raynaud's phenomenon was slightly greater than reported in the 2 control group and the general populations. There could be an inverse relationship between Raynaud's treatment with vasodilators and rosacea flushing symptom."

  6. We are compiling a list of arachnicide treatments for rosacea. If you have one we missed, please reply to this post. That is what volunteering is all about, helping other rosaceans find information to treat and ultimately cure rosacea. Arachnicide Treatments for Rosacea Anti-Parasitic Prescription Agents for Rosacea Azelaic Acid Benzyl Benzoate Borax Crotamiton Demodex Solutions Diatomaceous earth IPL Ivermectin Oral Ivermectin and Metronidazole Ornidazole tablets (500 mg twice a day) and recombinant bovine basic fibroblast growth f
  7. Raynaud syndrome on female airman's hand image courtesy of Wikimedia Commons Eilleen66 [post no 5] points out at RF, "I was pointing out the coincidence that a lot of people who have rosacea also have Raynauds type symptoms." So I thought I would do a little research on this using the search tool here at the RRDi website by simply typing in 'Raynaud' and see what comes up. Didn't do a Google search, since that takes more time and effort. Are you up to the task of really investigating this subject, googling it, and then add to this thread? Not many are really into doing rosacea research
  8. "The findings from this study present the concept of the involvement of the gut–brain–skin axis in rosacea."

  9. On report on this subject states, "the risks of some comorbidities in patients with rosacea are somewhat contradictory, depending upon the study design. Moreover, pathomechanisms associated with the comorbidities of patients with rosacea remain poorly elucidated."

  10. A paper recommends "light-emitting diodes therapy combining blue (480 nm) and red (650 nm) light" that "this kind of treatment could represent an effective, safer, and well-tolerated approach for the treatment of such conditions [rosacea]". J Med Case Rep. 2020 Jan 28;14(1):22 Coupled blue and red light-emitting diodes therapy efficacy in patients with rosacea: two case reports. Sorbellini E, De Padova MP, Rinaldi F
