  • Best Rosacea advice EVER!!

    I can warmly recommend a Danish Dermatologist at the West London Dermatology Centre, Chiswick, London.
    He is professional, caring, research-minded - ALL you can wish for!

    I had the worst, resistant Rosacea you could imagine for decades! But... his treatment regimen cleared my skin almost immediately.
    He uses a completely painless laser and a combination of topicals for my skin - what a brilliant response! I could see the treatment response within days!

    Look it up at: www. dermclinic.co.uk

    Im definately gonna see him again - I keep you updated out there!

    Thanks!

    Best regards,
    Steve

These have been the three most effective treatments for me.

    Please post your most effective treatments (and for what symptoms they treat) and we'll get a big list going!

    For the chronic redness, burning, flushing and blushing:
    Intense Pulsed Light - I got 3 sessions with the Vasculight IPL and it made a dramatic difference. My severe Rosacea became somewhat manageable. I'm sure the new lasers of today are just as good, if not better.
    >>Educate yourself on Intense Pulsed Light

    For the slight burning, flushing, and blushing
    Red Light Therapy - Hours of total time under LLT put much of the palpable symptoms of Rosacea at bay.
    >> Educate yourself on Red Light Therapy

    For the remaining butterfly shaped light redness that never seems to go away since Rosacea first plagued me!
    Melanotan - The final knockout punch to this disease. Cover redness, makes us pale folk look healthier, and cover any acne scars (big plus for me!)
    >>Educate yourself on Melanotan

    EDIT as requested by fut July 20, 2008

    Knowledge of one owns body grows with age and i'm glad to say that I have become more astute to dealing with my skin problems. I'm very happy to add two more highly effective treatments for Rosacea. I'd also like to note that i've stopped one of my treatments.

    I've stopped Melanotan. Why? Melanotan has been wonderful to me and I would recommend it to people for immediate help with their symptoms. PLEASE read my other posts in regards to it. The reasons why I stopped, from most ipmportant to least:
    1) I've found better solutions!
    2) It's not natural. I've learned to take a more holistic approach to my my skin problems.
    3) If I choose to continue, it's like i've chosen to never stop. It only treats the symptoms of Rosacea (it treats all of the symptoms, by the way)
    4) Injecting does not feel good, neither does the occasional stomach discomfort a few hours after injecting.

    Now, on to the more important part...

    For the root of Rosacea, which means ALL symptoms
    Antioxidants - I have been drinking several cups of White and Green Tea a day. Not to mention an increase of fruit intake.
    >>Educate yourself on the link of Rosacea and Oxidative Stress

    Remember that Green Tea cream some people were mentioning as a 'cure'? I never believed it. Now i'll give it the benefit of the doubt. Even better would be to consume a diet rich in anti-oxidants. The easiest and most effective way? Incorporate white and green tea into your diet. I'll let the medical journals speak for themselves.

    The excessive production of reactive oxidative species (ROS) associated with inflammation leads to a condition of oxidative stress. [1]
    Skin is a major target of oxidative stress due to reactive oxygen species (ROS) that originate in the environment and in the skin itself. [2]
    Conclusion: Our results suggest that rosacea is an oxidative stress condition, as reflected by the increased ROS activity and decreased AOP, regardless of HP infection.[3]

    Colon Hydrotherapy and Probiotics - I've had two colonics with an extremely knowledgeable and talented therapist Sharon Stone. I've included Live Active Cereal and non-fat yogurt into my diet.
    >>Educate yourself on Colon Hydrotherapy
    >>Educate yourself on Probiotics

    Remember the whole hype with the link between H. Pylori and Rosacea? Antibiotics are very helpful for many cases of Rosacea. Instead of using antibiotics which kill both good and bad bacteria, there is a better route.

    Note that 60% of feces is made up of bacteria. What happens when your body can't effectively get rid of this bacteria? Feces will literally dry up along the walls of your intestine. Your body will find other ways to get rid of it through our skin. After my first Colon Hydrotherapy, I was a believer. After each colonic I had, I saw improvements to my skin overnight.

    I hope this helps. I suggest a moderator add these two to my original post.

    Hey everyone,

    I've been away for some time, traveling South America (Brazil and Argentina) - it hasn't been too comforting to go from the beach in Rio to the snow in New York, but i'm sure i'll adjust.

    I'm so glad that Melissa made this a sticky, because i'd love to add some more insight.

    At this point, my symptoms are the same as when I started this thread (with a small improvement in base redness). I don't want to exaggerate my relief, insinuating that my particular 'Most Effective Treatments' are the tell all cure. What I do know is this, with what i've learned from when I started this thread to what I know now, I now have the knowledge and tools that will help me completely cure my skin ailments. This takes time, the time it takes for anyone to cure any ailment, including Rosacea depends on three factors:

    1) How long you've been sick, internally
    2) How consistent you are with the lifestyle changes necessary to achieve optimal health
    3) How many more toxins you acquire along the way

    There are a few questions i've been asking myself, which with proper research, allowed me to find a proper answer that I am satisfied with.

    Question: Why are treatments like Red Light Therapy and Intensed Pulsed Light not complete cures, and why do many see their symptoms return after stopping these treatments?
    Answer: These modalities treat the symptoms, not the cause of the problem.
    There is a huge difference between Eastern and Western philosophies to treating ailments. Simply stated:
    * Western philosophy isolates and forces therapeutic actions to take place in the body.
    * Eastern philosophy depends upon whole-food formulas to nourish the body's ability to legislate needed actions.

    The action of RLT and IPL is to force the body to heal the specific symptoms that are being caused. (e.g. Destroying red blood cells so the body can create new, healthier red blood cells)

    Now, RLT and IPL both have their place - heck, they are two of the most effective treatments to treating Rosacea symptoms. However, it makes sense to me that while these light therapies provide temporary relief, they are not the tell all cure to all of your symptoms.


    Question: Why are many synthetic, Western drugs, such as antibiotics so helpful to many Rosacea sufferers?
    Answer: They destroy toxins
    I don't condone the use of antibiotics. They have their place in the Western philosophy of treating a wide range or ailments. When your body is under overload of toxins (e.g. Your immune system can't fight them all), the toxins will be sent away from the vital organs to protect them. Does it make sense that when you have a cold, your body is just reacting (immune response) to get rid of the toxins? You see this through mucous coming out of your nose and sneezing and coughing away toxins through your mouth. The same is for skin ailments - your body is reacting to toxins by getting rid of them through sweat, acne, Rosacea, etc.

    We need to understand that our body has been developing and evolving for thousands of years, and naturally finds ways to heal itself given the proper nutrients it needs. Antibiotics are aiding the body in handling something that it should be able to handle itself.

    Antibiotics are effectively destroying the toxins (bacteria, amongst other things) that would otherwise be released through your skin. Great, right? Not entirely, because
    1) You are destroying other things in your body that are naturally in place to aid your immune system. Antiobiotics are a double edged sword.
    2) Why do we, Rosacea sufferers, continually need anti biotics to fight off these toxins when other people don't need them? Why do we have an immune reaction as seen through Rosacea when others don't? Antibiotics are not the cure, they are still only helping the treatment of a symptom of something deeper.


    Question: What is the root cause of Rosacea? Is colon hydrotherapy and anti oxidants really treating this root?
    Answer: The root cause is the build up of toxins over a period of, for most, is many years. These toxins are then, as a natural reaction, being released through the skin which is seen as an inflammatory response on your skin. Colon hydrotherapy does not solve the root cause, and anti oxidants only touches the surface!

    Colon Hydrotherapy
    The colon of a healthy human is taken up by 85% healthy bacteria and 15% unhealthy bacteria (which is still naturally necessary for many of our bodies functions) The healthy balance of fluora that populates our colon is a large part of our immune system (along with the liver, gallbladder, and other vital organs) They sweep out toxins from foods and help get rid of them through the colon (#2) An unhealthy balance of fluora is the equivalent of a vital organ not functioning properly. Colon hydrotherapy cleans out the toxins in your colon, giving the immune system a temporary relief. However, if your immune system isn't strong enough, the same unhealthy balance of fluora will repopulate your colon.

    After getting my own colon hydrotherapies, I received dramatic improvements - no more acne, redness diminished greatly. This is because there weren't so many toxins in my body that had to be released through my skin. After I stopped for a few months, these symptoms came back!

    Anti Oxidants
    I provided a few links on oxidative stress and Rosacea in the original post of this sticky. Anti oxidants are a necessary and natural part of the human immune system. The natural and strongest forms of anti oxidants are Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Vitamin C amongst others. These are all vitamins that have been proven to be necessary for the proper and healthy functioning of our body. Everyone, Rosacea sufferer or not, goes through some form of oxidative stress and anti oxidants are in place to fight this. This is part of our immune system.

    Here is where my original post and this one changes. Green tea is an example of an anti oxidant. But Green tea can only go so far as to treating the large oxidative stress that our bodies undergo as a result of what is causing Rosacea. Instead of supplementing with Green Tea, make sure you are getting every single vitamin and mineral that is necessary for the healthy immune function of a healthy person. All vitamins and minerals work together. No single vitamin or mineral works alone. Simply supplementing with Vitamin C, for example, will not build your immune system strong enough to fight off the toxins that are causing Rosacea!


    Question: But what about genetics? Rosacea has been proven to run in the family.
    Answer: It isn't genetics, it's health status!
    I hope this answer can provide some mental relief for many. The health of your parents from sperm to egg, to when you are born, to their lifestyle as you are growing up, all takes it's toll on you. If your father or mother has Rosacea, we now know that their bodies are naturally responding to the toxins in their bodies. You are born with the same health status as your parents. The foods they eat, the toxins they acquire, will also takes it's toll on you as you are growing up. If they eat a diet large in refined carbohydrates and sugars (foods which people on this board have seen relief by avoiding) then chances are, you have been eating this same type of food for how many ever years you've been living in their household. Again, let me reiterate what I said earlier about Rosacea. Rosacea is an immune response that could have taken several years to brew in your body. The sugary cereals you were eating as a kid produces toxins. If all of these toxins were not fought off by your immune system(which can start weak from when you first born), these toxins slowly build up and your body will find other ways of getting rid of it.

    Well there you have my thoughts for the past few months. If you have any questions feel free to ask

    -George

    • Yet another person weighs in

      I've had Rosacea for nearly 30 years, gone through a number of dermatologists, and tried a lot of medications. What seems obvious is that Rosacea and its many cures affect us differently. I'm a native Californian who owned convertibles and rode motorcycles for decades in the California sun, all without problems for my first 40 years. Here's what I've found out over the next three decades, after the Rosacea showed up:

      1. I do better with a good night's sleep, which is hard for this confirmed night owl
      2. I love long hot baths, but they don't love my Rosacea
      3. I love spicy food ... and it doesn't affect my skin one bit
      4. Stress or physical exertion can make my Rosacea glow ... and not in a good way. Getting old and retiring helped on both of those accounts.
      5. Sun has become a problem, so in summer I use a lot of sunblock. I use a non-scented cream formulated for sensitive skin.
      6. Heat is a problem, so it's good that I now live in a slightly cooler climate.
      7. My skin is oily and I am sensitive to scented soaps. Cetaphil doesn't work for me. When washing my face in the morning, what I now do is alternate between Stiefel Acne Aid soap bar (ordered from Amazon) and Carbod ZNP Pyrithione Zinc Bar soap (also ordered through Amazon, via Paraguay!).
      8. A couple of dermatologists told me not to wash my face more than once a day and only with mild soap. That's what I did for years. That advice was not right for me. About a year ago, I ventured into an Ulta store with my wife (this is not a plug for that pricey place, just my own experience). I decided to ask if there was anything that might help with my problem and was given free samples of facial cleanser and a moisturizing cream, both by Dermalogica (sp?). The instruction was to use them each night: first washing my face with the cleanser, then applying the moisturizer. Using a moisturizer on oily skin seemed wrong, but the Ulta specialist turned out to be right; the stuff really helps.
      9. Giving up hot baths, being somewhat good about using sunblock, and using the two Ulta products (I'll post the names if anyone cares) did not eliminate my problem, but I've been using the same tube of clindamycin and the same bottle of sulfacetamide for nearly a year.
      10. My latest Kaiser dermatologist is happy to prescribe pretty much whatever I ask for ... or he was. As of February 1, 2015, I haven't seen him for about 18 months. From him and my internal medicine doctor, though, I keep a supply of oxycycline tablets, Metro cream, clindamycin phosphate topical gel, and a sulfacetamide sodium/sulfur lotion. All can be helpful, but I now rely almost entirely on tiny amounts of clindamycin phosphare gel and the sulfacetamide, only as needed.

        Hi there:

        I was officially diagnosed with rosacea only a month or so ago. I am pretty mortified... never in a million years would I have thought such a thing existed, not to mention I had just thought of myself as being super healthy.

        I would love to hear your stories and learn from your experiences. I don't know anyone that has this condition and doctors don't really know first hand. I would greatly appreciate if you ocular rosacea sufferers would drop me a note or replied to this post. Thanks so much!

        1. How old were you when you were diagnosed with the ocular component of ocular rosacea?
        2. and/or how long have you had ocular rosacea?
        2. Do you have facial rosacia also?
        3. Are the whites of your eyes red?
        4. Do you have visible vessels around your eyelids and lashes?
        5. Do you have decreased tear production too?
        6. Do you take or have you taken doxy? If so, did you see any results? What were the results?
        7. Do you experience pain as a result of ocular rosacea?
        8. Have you taken Restsis for ocular rosacea? If so, did you notice any results and how long did it take?
        9. Are there any other medications that you have taken for ocular rosacea?
        10. Have you ever gone into a remission with ocular rosacea?
        11. Has your ocular rosacea progressed and become worse?
        12. Do you have any "triggers"? Can you drink wine or coffee?
        13. Can you exercise without exacerbating the ocular rosacea?
        14. And for women... And most importantly... (to me who still hopes to have children) have you ever had any children since being diagnosed with ocular rosacea?

        Thanks again!

          I am pregnant now and actually my ocular rosacea and facial rosacea haven't been that bad. I'm not using anything besides sunscreen and a prenatal vitamin (i believe the fish oil in it is helping quite a bit). I quit stressing about it all because i don't want to harm the baby in any way so that may be helping. My nose flushes a little easier since being pregnant, but i defintely expected a lot worse and so far i can manage what's happening. I developed facial rosacea and ocular rosacea after i had my son in 2013.

          • lhill,
            1. How old were you when you were diagnosed with the ocular component of ocular rosacea? P&P rosacea diag in 2012, but ocular never. I recognized what it was after reading a clinical study. I've successfully treated with Terpinen-4-ol mixed with mineral oil, the active ingredient in cliradex ocular rosacea wipes. I just started this about two months ago. Terpinen-4-ol is the active ingredient in TTO.
            2. and/or how long have you had ocular rosacea? Not sure but at least a couple of years
            2. Do you have facial rosacia also? Yes, P&P
            3. Are the whites of your eyes red? Not now, but they were before the Terpinen-4-ol; I'm using it now once a week for maintenance
            4. Do you have visible vessels around your eyelids and lashes? YES, but they're getting smaller all the time.
            5. Do you have decreased tear production too? Always had dry eyes
            6. Do you take or have you taken doxy? If so, did you see any results? What were the results? n/a
            7. Do you experience pain as a result of ocular rosacea? Feel pressure behind my eyes that I interpret as thirst, not sure if it is.
            8. Have you taken Restsis for ocular rosacea? If so, did you notice any results and how long did it take? n/a
            9. Are there any other medications that you have taken for ocular rosacea? No, but read this clinical study: Google this article number PMC3860352
            10. Have you ever gone into a remission with ocular rosacea? YES!!! I am now.
            11. Has your ocular rosacea progressed and become worse? Yes, I lost the middle section of lashes on my left upper lid
            12. Do you have any "triggers"? Can you drink wine or coffee? Coffee is a huge trigger for me. Wine can be if I drink more than a half glass
            13. Can you exercise without exacerbating the ocular rosacea? yes
            14. And for women... And most importantly... (to me who still hopes to have children) have you ever had any children since being diagnosed with ocular rosacea? No

            • It is a blessing

              Hi,

              I hope I will help someone. In my opinion, our body in telling us by developing rosacea and similar simptoms, that something is going wrong. I had bad rosacea in January 2015, until now it is 95% gone. I still have small red dots not visible by naked eye only I can see it. So the things can get better. It was a big lesson and opurtunity to lean about my body... We take things for granted.
              What do do:
              1. DIET Before I used to eat what ever I liked, sure a lot of sugar, gluten , coffee , fast food.. and not drinking enough. I am not saying that changing diet is alone what can help. No, but please include antiinflammatory foods like: eat every day a lot of ginger, than you can eat fish, cooling vegetables and fruits like cucumbers, melons. It is important to cool the body, so drink water also. Do not drink hot drinks because you will heat the body. Mediteranean diet is helpful. I stayed away also from foods high in histamine like tomatoes, avocado, banana , tea...
              2. Supplements, this part is important
              Evening primrose oil and Zinc are helpful, but for me this is what made a BIG difference:
              - 3X a day 1000 mg L Lysine and Vitamin C 1000 mg along with Lysine , so it is 3000 mg of each
              -Papaya enzims after meal- because of low stomac acid, some rosaceans have it
              -1 x a day royal gelly of any kind
              - probiotics
              -dont forget to eat every dan ginger..

              3. topical:
              It is important to be gentle, for me antidandruff shampoo works like magic
              I use Selenium Sulfid shampoo , every morning 2 mins
              Also wash your face is honey and tee tree oil only if it is not irritating, it will remore any demodex
              Wash your hair and body also with tto, you can add few drops in shampoo that you use
              I have Metrogel, and it is ok
              Also Avene Termal Water, is must have for me
              If skin is very red maybe oats mask will help, just add some oats in hot water and let is cool. Use it only 2-3 mins as a mask on skin.

              Thats it, but sure, dear God and prayer will help the most.
              Relax, meditate

              Hope it helps

              Marianne

                  • I have been having red face for 15 years, but I never took care about it as I was quite poor and couldn't afford treatment anyway.
                    Now 15 years later I am still red but for 2 years I take care and I started IPL therapy - I have done it 6 times and my face - I mean redness - is lower but still quite red:



                    I use such cosmetics:
                    • Cetaphil for face cleansing by cotton pads
                    • Light make up - yup I am not ashamed
                    • Light Creme for night
                    • Specialized cremes for Rosacea - price starts from €5 to €20 - example Auriderm XO Cream, Avene Antirougers FORT
                    • SPF Sunscreen 50+
                    • Demoxoft for eyes cleaning
                    • Metronidasolum
                    • Zinc forte - 1 pill every day = 27 mg per day.


                    I found that food has strong impact of my redness - can't pinpoint exact food type but sometimes I am redder, sometimes not even when I ate the same thing as before.
                    I had ocular Rosacea, I had to remove one dot inside eye - upper eye lid. I couldn't wear contact lenses so I had to remove it physically. It was size of salt, 0.1x0.1mm.

                    My dermatologist said to think over low-inflammation diet. What do you think about it?
                    I know sugar can be great enemy, today I ate 6 chocolate-peanut snack bars and I am all good.

                    • My rosacea success story

                      Hi there,

                      I developed papulopustular rosacea about two years ago and have been turning to this forum for advice, and now I'd like to share what has worked for me!

                      While I've taken a variety of medications (Metronidazole, Soolantra, and Oracea), the only thing that stops me from breaking out is giving up alcohol and caffeine. For anyone who is frustrated by their skin, I highly recommend quitting alcohol and caffeine for 10 days and seeing what happens. My dermatologist told me that caffeine is not a trigger, but my experience shows otherwise. Today my skin looks better than it has in years, and I've been off alcohol for almost 4 weeks and off caffeine for 7 days. For me, I have to do both in order to get the full benefit.

                      I know this might sound incredibly frustrating for people who love their coffee and wine (as I do!), but I am so much happier having clear skin that I almost don't care. Also, yesterday I caved and had a cup of coffee, and my skin is still clear today. So I think I'm going to take a moderate approach and perhaps have a coffee once a week. After reading up on the effect that sugar and grains have on your skin, I've also taken pains to avoid those (I am vegan, so I don't have to worry about dairy or red meat or other junk).

                      To find your triggers, keep a food diary every single day. Look at what remains constant (for me, it was my daily cup of coffee) and try taking that away. Wait a week and see if your skin clears up. My food diary has also shown me that Diet Coke is a trigger in addition to coffee, and so is spicy food. It's super helpful. Good luck to you!

                      • First Post!

                        Hi guys,

                        I HAVE TO SHARE THIS.

                        I've been looking around for years, found nothing that works as well as i'd hope, some stuff works in the short run. Spent an absolute fortune on laser treatments, which work but require me to keep going back for more.

                        Came across an advert on Facebook for "rosacure" a couple months ago I've been using it day and night, at first I was sceptical that this was just another useless product but I persisted anyway. There wasn't much change in the first week, I initially thought it was rubbish, just another glorified moisturizer. but sure enough After about 2 and a half 3 weeks I noticed the redness slowly fade and my flare ups stopped happening! Nice moisturizer too! 2 months down the line The redness has gone and I rarely have flare ups now, I couldn't be happier with it.Went on to re-order a couple days ago and they are doing this offer for "every product £10", so I filled my boots, I now have enough of a supply for the rest of the year he he

                        I used the set with 3 products, the cleanser, fast and intensive.

                        Have any of you guys used it?

                        Here's the link to the website, let me know your experiences - http://www.theskinmedshop.com/rosacure-c102x2573137

                            So glad you have found something that works. But Fucidin cream is not an anti-fungal, it is an antibiotic. There is a big difference.

                              Were you actually diagnosed with Rosacea?
                              How long did it take to go away the first time using Fucidin?
                              How long does it take to clear up after re surfacing?

                              • Hey guys try applying a light layer of magnesium hydroxide to your face it does wonders. I started doing this in the PM to reduce oil secretions in the PM (based on the Dermodex mites hypothesis for rosacea) but I've quickly realized a light layer can be applied during the day without anyone noticing it's on my face. It hides a ton of the redness, more than any male make-up stuffs, such as a mattes/high-definition powders, gets rid of the shiny face, and seriously dampens all flushing episodes.

                                You can just purchase it in the form of milk of magnesia (sold as a laxative), spread a small amount around nose/cheeks. I tend to apply it after applying lotion to the face, and it dries nicely. This has been the largest normalizing factor in my life lately.

                                This has had more dramatic effects for me than IPL, male-oriented make-ups, prosacea, Mirvaso (rebound flushing), beta blockers, etc. I also use zinc supplements (100 mg per day) which tends to be helpful. I hope this helps someone.

                                TLDR;
                                light layer of lotion
                                light layer of milk of magnesia
                                zinc supplements
                                --> great impact on flush/redness. GL.
