  1. One of our members came to the rescue so we are still in this for at least another year! Our financial page is transparent and you can view how we spend our donations. Our next project is to figure out how to get our members to be active. The first step is recognizing active vs inactive members.
  2. The RRDi is now showing the active members vs the inactive members since the non voting and the voting members haven't been engaging in any rosacea discussion for some time now. This has created a relatively inactive forum 'engagement' with fellow rosaceans which is really core to our mission (view the RRDi Mission). Goal #7: To allow volunteer members to have a platform to voice their concerns about rosacea and to contribute information about rosacea. Our goal is 10K members. Since the 1.4K members are not engaging in any discussion, we will be informing everyone whether a member
  3. Investigative Report on Why Rosaceans Prefer Social Media 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 r
  4. The RRDi has been using Invision Community forum platform since 2004. When we started in 2004 it was recommended by Warren Stuart who was the assistant director of the RRDi to use what was then called Invision Power Services (later the name was changed to Invision Community). It is a powerful platform with many add-on features and a significant number of developers adding plugins and additional features to the platform. Invision Community Clients Some very large corporations use the Invision Community platform. Do you recognize any of these companies below? Are the above co
  5. Invision Community "Grassroots movements are associated with bottom-up, rather than top-down decision making, and are sometimes considered more natural or spontaneous than more traditional power structures." [1] We have chosen the Invision Community platform to interface between members (allowing also a private Tapatalk private forum). We prefer this over the social media platforms which are obviously more popular, however, we do have accounts with the major social media platforms if you prefer that sort of engagement (scroll down to the subheading RRDi Social Media Accounts).

    Looking back I started taking the 20 mg of doxycycline twice a day since August 25, 2020 and stopped it on Feb 8 which was a total of 167 days. I will say that taking the doxycycline does indeed clear my rosacea. However, the side effect of my upset stomach and burping is difficult to deal with. I have now been off the doxycycline for ten days. I have been taking the Butyric Acid on average two a day for ten days. It is a little better but I am still recovering with my upset stomach and burping. I have noticed that my skin is developing a few red spots. I will update again in twenty days.

Sir Alex Ferguson image courtesy of Wikimedia Commons Roger Dobson of the Daily Mail reports that the Scottish former football manager and player, considered by many to be one of the greatest managers of all time, has rosacea. Roger reports this in the article dated September 10, 2012, Heat gun that can blast away rosacea in a flash.

"MultiStat® has demonstrated clinical success in improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles resulting from natural aging or sun damage, and has significant benefits in other skin conditions, such as roughness or redness."

    Just an update on my rosacea regimen. I have been having digestion issues (lots of burping and stomach issues), so I have decided to stop the 20 mg of doxycycline twice a day for a while starting Feb 8 to see if this clears up my issues. I ordered some Butyric Acid since I posted about this based upon the clinical paper mentioned in the post. Amazon should deliver it tomorrow and I got 90 capsules of this particular item. I will post my progress here but it usually takes a month to see if this clears up my burping and stomach issues. If my rosacea comes back I can always take the low dose doxy
