  2. Aspirin For Rosacea

    I found this article in the Houston Chronicle interesting since I take a 81 mg enteric coated Aspirin every day: "Q: This is a true story. In the 1950s, my grandmother was taking a "heart pill" her doctor had prescribed. The older doctor retired, and Granny went to see the new doctor to get her heart pill refilled. The young doctor told her: "Mrs. G., this is nothing but aspirin. There is nothing wrong with your heart." He refused to refill her heart pill. Three weeks later she died of a heart attack. That was in the 1950s, before any research had been done on the effects of aspirin and the heart. A: It took decades for the medical profession to recognize how useful aspirin could be in preventing heart attacks. A recent Swedish study discovered that people who discontinued low-dose aspirin were 37 percent more likely to have a hospitalization, heart attack or stroke (Circulation, online, Sept. 26, 2017). The investigators suggest that there may be rebound blood clotting when aspirin is stopped suddenly. Other research also has shown a link between aspirin discontinuation and serious cardiovascular events. If people need to stop aspirin prior to surgery or because of side effects, they should do so under careful medical supervision."

  5. "Spend more than three minutes talking to any dermatologist ever, and they’ll inevitably start raving about three things: 1. Wearing sunscreen every single day until the moment you die, 2. How Accutane is an actual miracle drug, and 3. Why everyone should be slathering vitamin C on their face every single morning, like it’s the antidote to sadness. (And if your skin is an issue, then yeah—it kind of is the cure)." Why Every Single Derm Thinks You Should Be Using Vitamin C on Your Face, by CHLOE METZGER, marie claire

  7. Facial erythema is a condition where the face turns red and this type of condition is prominently seen in fair individuals. This facial redness arises due to the dilation of the cutaneous blood vessels and increased blood flow up to the skin. Facial erythema many times goes undiagnosed among the dark-skinned individuals. There are many factors responsible for the facial erythema, including the primary skin diseases like rosacea and systemic illness, and perioral dermatitis. Facial erythema condition is characterized by itching, redness, burning skin, dry skin, visible blood vessels, flushing, and pain. This disease affects many people worldwide and is a very common facial skin disease, is chronic and predominantly found in females with fair skin.

  9. Animal Diet Triggers Rosacea

    image courtesy of Mark's Daily Apple In the spirit of 'everything rosacea' I have included a report by Darcelle (post no 23) at RF that "eliminating animal products from your diet [will] help with the rosacea," hence, an animal diet triggers rosacea. This is ironic because Darcelle started the thread with the title, Rosacea AFTER Going Vegan, but she changes her view as you read through the thread. Darcelle cites two references in post no 23, the first, Lindsay S Nixon, who interviews Mary Lou who reports that eating a plant based diet cleared her rosacea in just 30 days, and the other example about Silpa Reddy who reports her "rosacea has lessened with every month." dazed1 and MissM both advocate a plant based diet in this thread (posts 71 thru 75). dazed1's post no 39 explains in more detail how to implement a plant based diet supplemented with certain nutrients and a list of foods prohibited (be sure to pay extra attention to the little smiley that is shaking its head NO "diet - absolutely" which indicates the foods on the list are prohibited. You should be aware that rosacea triggers are basically anything put on a list made up of anecdotal reports from rosacea sufferers who say 'this triggers rosacea." There are no clinical papers with double blind, placebo controlled studies done that substantiates any trigger. Furthermore, there is no known proposed rosacea trigger that will produce a rosacea flareup in every rosacea sufferer. All rosacea triggers are simply proposed. A proposed trigger may or may not trigger your rosacea. All you can do is just see if a proposed trigger on the list triggers your rosacea. More on trigger avoidance. It is only fair to include this for those who may want to try a plant based diet and see if it clears rosacea. If you have something to report about this please reply to this post. So the proponents of this particular plant based diet (with certain foods prohibited for two weeks) say you should start improving in two weeks to a month. After your improvement the real test is to go back on the animal diet you previously had before to see if your rosacea returns. That should be enough evidence to convince someone that an animal diet triggers rosacea. Then to prove it works go back on the particular plant based diet that is mentioned in this post to see if your rosacea is improved again or controlled to prove beyond any doubt this type of diet works. If there are any takers for this diet please post your results here.

  12. Should You Put Probiotics On Your Face?

    "If you’re constantly battling acne, eczema, rosacea or any number of other skin disorders, the solution may be in your fridge — not your bathroom cabinet. According to many progressive dermatologists, probiotic-rich foods like yogurt, kefir and kombucha can be even more effective in treating stubborn skin conditions than store-bought or prescription skin creams."

"“As an intermediary step between topical antibiotics and oral isotretinoin, we propose that topical tretinoin may be effective in the management and reduction of rosacea symptoms,” Emily Forward, MD, of the University of Sydney, said at the meeting.

  15. "Dr. Edina Garaczi emphasizes that all rosaceous patients should be treated personally. It is not enough to focus only on skin symptoms, there is not a panacea that is equally well-liked for everyone, everyone has to individually find and deal with rosacea provocative factors."
