  1. Ok so it has been a long journey for you with respect to rosacea. Yes this theory does not go completely with only fair skin people get rosacea. There are some published research on rosacea in skin of color people. I am an Indian and I also have olive skin with yellow undertone and the bizarre thing is Indian skin is something very acclimatized to sun rays because of its extreme hot and humid climate and we do not get easily anything related to skin but when I got this condition five years ago it was unknown to me and initially it was in an exaggerated condition difficult to control and handle but gradually I understood with trial and error considering my diet what I eat what I apply on my face and environmental and immune conditions. Now still it remits and relapses with frequent episodes but now I know how to manage it.
  2. May be It's not about eating blueberry bar and then getting red blotchy cheeks.sometimes the environmental factors are the triggers. because there are so many factors which trigger rosacea inflammation. genetic, environmental, your immune system, microbial flora of your skin, food triggers and many more. and the condition you described that when you do not eat and you just seat at work not taking stress even if in relaxed state you get red for no reason and this happens to me exactly. So I think the environmental factor may work here because with the onset of fall and continue with winter our body adjusts with the temperature called thermoregulation.You can read about it here : https://irosacea.org/forums/topic/4120-autumn-and-rosacea-flare-ups/?tab=comments#comment-5278 Could you please tell me when did your rosacea condition start? you are new to this condition or it's been a long?
  3. Yes I know this very well it has its medicinal properties and used for food and pharmaceutical industry considering its compounds but not much research has been done on this plant when it comes to skin diseases especially for rosacea and the link you provided It is already mentioned in my articles reference note. Yes you can not find the essential oil online that is why how I made this concoction oil I have explained this in my article.
  4. I would like all of you to test this natural extract for your rosacea inflammed skin. Its extract has high antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory effects and has shown some strong effects towards some bacterial species found on skin. You can use it as a pure essential oil or better make a concoction with your preferred oil. Your contribution would mean a lot and help me recognize my work and research on this. I am soon coming with other natural products for rosacea. Comment your experience.
  5. Yes the reason is, having read all the threads and posts in the RRDi forum, they justify themselves with a pretty good amount of knowledge gained. but in my opinion I would also suggest all the rosaceans to come out and share your knowledge and problems with us and ask your questions so that we could help you out or either we could get something new out of this because every rosacean has different experiences and different outcomes with respect to their rosacea. Brady and I are gaining interest in viruses in rosacea so if any member has any experience of it, they can just share their experiences or problems or questions with us.
  6. I am already onto it.Yes we must do research on this theme to know more about viruses in rosacea. Infact I have been talking to so many researchers who work on skin microbiome in infection and diseases and share my research ideas with them. It would be a good idea to do such research on fresh theme.
  7. Yes sugar is an inflammatory food and causes inflammation because of its high glycemic index because when you eat sugar it directly goes to your gut and gets processed and enters blood stream and increases insulin level and when you are already prone to inflammation, It exacerbates and fuel the condition of inflammation. If you can reduce the intake of sugar you can after some days easily feel the roughness above the inflamed skin going away.
  8. Very good post. I also have been researching and trying to find out the ways in which mite-bacterial interaction as well as viral interaction in rosacea exacerbate the condition of inflammation.
  9. I have with my care controlled or you can say remitted the condition of rosacea. It is less exacerbating and only bothers in fall and winter and I have control over it at many times but how stress and less sleep can relapse the condition of rosacea when it is already in control, I have experienced. The dilation of blood capillaries start showing and the erythematic condition characterized by flushing is more prevalent when there were less signs. So the things you can do are take more antioxidants since stress means if you go beyond it is cellular stress which changes the skin resident proteins and immune cells and do the things which help alleviate stress so that you can have good sound sleep because again less sleep means increasing the oxidative stress. Antioxidants and good sleep are the main things you can count on.
  10. Yes I have had experience of blepharitis with ET rosacea and papulopustular rosacea so every patient with both types of rosacea should go for blepharitis mites test before it becomes chronic because in early phase you can get rid of blepharitis if it is acute.
  11. Trillium Hii Trillium, I read one of your posts about using metronidazole topical cream with ivermectin. I do not know much about the duo combination of creams in terms of results but I know about metronidazole cream which my doctors had prescribed me and you have already made your point and explanation of how these creams work. so its no use discussing the same thing but with my experience why we should use antibiotics instead of steroids for rosacea is that steroids exacerbate the conditions of rosacea. you will have heard about the steroidal rosacea. My skin improved a lot using metronidazole cream with oral antibiotics. (your one more point about you were told rosacea is an autoimmune disease but it's just an infestation.) It is not completely right. though it is not an autoimmune disease but it is a chronic skin inflammatory disease which primarily includes immune cells and system. It has similarities with autoimmune conditions in terms of deregulation and misguiding of immune cells but then it's all about different immune cells playing their parts and contributing to these conditions. Infact the skin-microbiome interaction in rosacea is what alters the immune cells creating inflammatory response and vice-versa.very few research is going on this topic about does immune-compromised condition cause microbiome to increase in number or vice-versa.
  12. Yes I guess the mites can spread from the skin contact if the mites are in aggressive number on your face because as far as I know even on your face the mites will not stay at one place they tend to go from one place to another. normal skin also has demodex but in lower numbers but it has found the cause of rosacea with increased number of demodex.Don't cancel the trip. Better to consult dermatologist to find the better treatment for your rosacea.
  13. Yes I think we have to pay attention to the other skin-microbiome interaction also which tend to play a role in rosacea especially I was thinking of bacteriophage (bacteria+virus) which might play a role in rosacea and very few research is going on this rosacea and the idea of research on this theme would open up a new direction for rosacea. Think out loud.
  14. In my opinion, if we do research on the causes of rosacea we ultimately will go deep into the ground picture such as on cell and molecular and immunological level. If we find the main factors behind this condition, We then can cover everything in a broad picture to be focused on. First we have to find the root cause of this disease and everything will come into place.
  15. Yes I know it's not rosacea but erythema (redness). I know there are so many conditions which look like rosacea but they are not but we do not know the underlying cause might correlate.it might be a co existing condition occurs with rosacea. I haven't done anything for it. It is slowly decreasing itself.
