  1. This question has come up at RF whether Finasteride or Minoxidil causes flushing or may be a rosacea trigger and you may be interested in knowing that apparently there isn't any consensus on this and these two drugs haven't been listed on any rosacea trigger list as far as we know. If you have anything to add to this or your experience using either of these treatments with your rosacea, please find the reply to topic button. For more information
  2. We have a new video, Welcome to the RRDi Official Website found on our WELCOME PAGE for rosacea newbies.
  3. Gladskin makes a cream or gel for rosacea that is available in the UK on Amazon. The RRDi doesn't have an affiliate relationship with Amazon UK but in the the spirit of 'everything rosacea' we would hope rosaceans in the UK would let us know about this treatment and find the reply to topic button to report if they have success using this cream or gel. The USA Gladskin website doesn't mention this treatment. The Gladskin UK website has more information as well as the following video: Ingredients Aqua, Propylene glycol, Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, Glycerin, Arginine HCl, Sodium

    This is a subject to my heart and I have been wanting to make this video and finally finished it:
  5. Demodex Solutions, one of our sponsors, has graciously allowed us to award a free jar of the ZZ Cream to the best poster on our website each month. If you are the best poster of the month, you will receive a free jar of the ZZ Cream shipped to your address. So start posting!!! You have till the end of the month and someone will be awarded as the best poster and will be announced here who that poster is.
  6. Thanks Apurva. We have a little more than $300 left in the bank which may keep us going for a few months. I can't keep this non profit organization going by myself and have devoted a huge number of volunteer hours keeping this non profit organization legal to keep our IRS exempt status going which means donating to the RRDi is tax deductible. Keeping a non profit organization exempt, legal and active requires many volunteer hours. As you mentioned, we know that thousands visit our website each month and obviously take away huge amounts of rosacea treatment data which the amount on our websi
  7. Apurva, Thanks for your post. Sure hope you are not having any Covid 19 repurcussions or other health issues. Thank God you are ok and got through your illness. Sorry your rosacea flamed up during your stressful period which without a doubt added to your illness. Keep us informed of any other issues you may experience and update us using this thread.

  10. In harmony with this thread, it is time to review the activities of the NRS for 2019 since the NRS doesn't post its Form 990 for 2019 until the END of 2020 which anyone can download and review on its financial page by clicking here (scroll to the bottom of the page to find the Form 990 download). The page paints a very pretty picture with a graph and a list of expenses which shows 'Research Grants' in the amount of $231,526. Here is a screen shot for your enjoyment: The Form 990 for 2019 that the NRS reports to the Internal Revenue Service shows a very different picture than the mat
  11. "Ivermectin 1% cream QD had favorable incremental cost-effectiveness when compared with metronidazole 0.75% cream BID and dominated azelaic acid 15% gel BID in the treatment of papulopustular rosacea in the United States. Therefore, ivermectin 1% cream QD may be a good first-line treatment for papulopustular rosacea, providing additional clinical benefit at no or low additional cost."

  14. "The formula of hypochlorous acid is HOCl. A chemist discovered hypochlorous acid in 1834. It is a primary compound of innate immunity. This acid is effective to use against a wide range of microorganisms."

  16. Michelle, Really appreciate your post. Your plate is obviously full and I understand. Hang in there and wish you much success with your website. If you have a diagnosis with rosacea you may qualify to serve on the board of directors and you can work on improving the RRDi website since I have made this run for seventeen years and would love to hand the baton to someone younger. It would be a shame for the RRDi to dissolve but the handwriting is on the wall. Interested in running the RRDi the way you think it should be run?
  17. As everyone knows, 2020 has been a turbulent year and is ending. So is the RRDi. Our financial situation is meager and we have about two months left and we will be making the decision to shut down and dissolve. Rosaceans have left and gone away to the social media rosacea groups and prefer it that way. We have done our best and made a run at trying to help rosacea sufferers for seventeen years and the support presently to continue simply isn't there. No donations simply means the end of the RRDi. The saddest part to me is losing all the rosacea data on this website. I care, but I can't keep th
  18. I understand your reluctance to part with a donation to those with their hand out. It is one of the reasons I was appalled at how the other non profits for rosacea spend their donations. All you do is check it out for yourself, using Form 990 and see how the other non profits for rosacea spend their money. The two other non profits in the USA are the NRS and the AARS. The Canadian non profit, ARSC, does not disclose how they spend their donations. Compare that with what the RRDi spends its donations on, right now keeping this website going by checking the Site Index, the forums, and the articl

    Update on My Rosacea Regimen Treatments My current regimen includes Generic Doxycline 20 mg tab twice a day, Generic Azelaic Acid Gel about three times a week on my face/scalp on stubborn spots (more like folliculitis than SD on my scalp), the ZZ cream about three times a week (alternate the ZZ cream and the Azelaic Acid Gel on my face and forehead), and sometimes I may skip some days. Right now my face is fairly clear and the folliculitis on the scalp is much improved. I am now using a tablespoon of Tea Tree Oil in ten ounces of baby shampoo for my hair and also use on my face and neck w

  22. Wouldn't it be nice to have volunteers who would dig up some more scientists? I dug up 45 medical professionals that have something to do with rosacea. So I should order the 'I dug up the RRDi MAC' Tee shirt, all 45 if them.
