  1. Apurva, Might not be rosacea. Some conditions you may want to have your dermatologist rule out: Erythromelalgia Keratosis Pilaris Rubra Faceii Pityriasis rosea There are probably a number of other possibilities to rule out since the list of skin conditions that look like rosacea keeps growing. What are you treating your erythema with?
  2. Noticed a couple of posts that nappy, [aka, diaper] (Australian English and British English), skin treatments are helpful in some cases. For example a post from Smacky at RF who reports, "I've been using Bepanthen for about a week now....So I tried Bepanthen, and within a few hours noticed the skin on my nose and cheeks had settled down a bit and looked better. I've been applying it every morning and night before bed, and every day this week I've woken up find my nose a little less red than the day before. I also haven't had a single new spot or lump. I woke up today and looked in the mirror and my nose is the same skin tone as my face. It's almost surreal. Its like looking at a different person who I'd forgotten about. I feel wonderful Anyway I really hope this will help someone else." Ingredients in Bepanthen: Aqua, Lanolin, Paraffinum liquidum, Petrolatum, Panthenol, Prunus amygdalus dulcis oil, Cera alba, Cetyl alcohol, Stearyl alcohol, Ozokerite, Glyceryl oleate, Lanolin alcohol. Rubydo1 post no 2 states about this SD/Rosacea, "To be honest if it wasn’t for sudocrem I’d have a lot more spots." Sudocrem is a product made in Ireland which is available at Walmart. The ingredients for Sudocrem: Zinc Oxide Ph. Eur., Benzyl Alcohol B.P., Benzyl Benzoate B.P., Benzyl Cinnamate, Lanolin, Purified Water, Liquid Paraffin, Paraffin wax, Beeswax, Micrcocrystalline wax, Sodium Benzoate, Linayl Acetate, Propylene Glycol, Citric Acid, Butylated Hydroxyanisole, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Lavender fragrance Ingredients for Dermocrem are similar: A similar product that is also used to treat diaper rash is Rugby Zinc Oxide Ointment with the following ingredients: Active ingredient Zinc oxide 20% Inactive ingredients mineral oil, petrolatum
  3. Gerd Plewig, MD, who volunteers on the RRDi MAC recently sent a message to all the RRDi members about his fourth edition of his classic book on acne and rosacea which we feature in our store. Below is his message: On Mon, Jul 1, 2019 at 10:40 PM Plewig, Gerd Prof. Dr.med. wrote: Dear Members of the RRDi, You may be interested that the 4th completely revised and augmented edition of Acne & Rosacea is out. It is printed by Springer Milan, Italy, an can be ordered in print version, or electronically. The major chapter on rosacea has been updated in text and clinical illustrations. Also a new chapter on Demodex folliculorum mites with scanning electron microscopy images is added. Finally a new chapter on the history of acne and rosacea is provided. Best wishes, Gerd Plewig Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Gerd Plewig, FRCP Department of Dermatology University of Munich Frauenlobstrasse 9-11 80337 Munich Germany
  4. Permethrin 5% Cream has also been found to improve demodectic rosacea.
  5. Queta at RF has posted her regimen for demodectic rosacea: "Mix .5 TBL melted coconut oil (I put it in a the micro for a few seconds because it hardens at room temp) and 5-6 drop tea tree oil. Apply to face and leave on for 40 minutes each evening. I put some on my eyebrows and a little above my eyes but use extreme caution because tea tree oil will really burn your eyes if you get some in them. After waiting 40 minutes, wash off your face and do your usual nightly skin routine. For awhile after I was done washing my face I would use coconut oil as a moisturizer because I read that mites don't like it."
  6. In the UK you can get a Rx from a doctor online at this website. For example, you can get a Rx for Soolantra
  7. It was announced by Galderma on its website on May 16, 2019, "Nestlé today announced that it has entered into exclusive negotiations with a consortium led by EQT and a wholly owned subsidiary of the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA) for the sale of Nestlé Skin Health for a value of CHF 10.2 billion. The proposed transaction will be subject to employee consultations and approval of regulatory authorities and is expected to close in the second half of 2019."
  8. The results of this study demonstrated that a single, high-density MFU-V treatment may be effective for treating erythematotelangiectatic rosacea.

  9. It really saddens us that Joanne Whitehead, Ph.D., has resigned from the board of directors of the RRDi. She was instrumental in obtaining and working with two educational grants we received from Galderma in 2015 and 2016. Her expertise will be missed and her volunteer spirit. The RRDi greatly appreciates all the volunteer work Dr. Whitehead performed for the RRDi.
  10. darren1 has shared his experience not only with YouTube but also with RF in this thread and you watch one of his videos below:
  11. Galderma has applied for a brimonidine foam patent which according to the patent is claimed to have the "advantage of remaining on the surface of the skin and of delivering a smaller amount so as to prevent undesirable effects (rebound effect) and too obtain a foam that is suitable for treating rosacea."

  12. Thanks Rory. Looking forward to your results. Did you see this paper about demodex brevis: Demodex Brevis Higher Count Than Demodex Folliculorum in Cylindrical Dandruff Patients
  13. Actually I ran this by my dermatologist who was well aware that Rosaceans were using horse paste topically since he read about it in a journal. There are some dermatologists who are up to date with what is going on and then there are others who are in the dark. He told me that when prescribing Soolantra to his rosacea patients that about one in four patients were successful using it. He gave me a Rx for Soolantra and I tried it and I think now it was the inactive ingredients in Soolantra that irritated my skin. Galderma (or another pharmaceutical company) will probably eventually make an ivermectin gel with a very simple inactive ingredient list to compete with the horse paste that everyone is raving about. Galderma knows what is going on with rosaceans and obviously saw a slight dip in Soolantra sales due to thousands using horse paste. They know that a significant number of rosacea patients are not able to tolerate the inactive ingredients in Soolantra.
  14. Rory, thanks for clearing this up that you are taking the horse paste orally. We do have a thread dedicated to taking ivermectin orally. While many may think that taking oral ivermectin isn't a good idea, the fact is that oral ivermectin has been given to millions of people worldwide and there are long term studies on oral ivermectin in children. However, the RRDi recommends you check with your physician when embarking on this form of treatment as a precaution. It would be better you post in the oral ivermectin thread since this thread is about using horse paste topically. Thanks.
  15. The RRDi is pleased to announce that Apurva Tathe has been appointed to serve on the RRDi Board of Directors. She has a masters of science in biotechnology and is an excellent addition to the board.
