    So I can't use zz cream because my arm reacted badly. Any suggestions on the next step? So far after joining the forum I learned a couple tips that help with rosacea. I started using a humidifier in my room since I have indoor allergies that causes the nose flares. This is best for me during the quarantine so I don't have to keep taking allergy mediation. Flushing significantly reduced but I do still have that baseline redness and rough texture on my nose. I also use cold washer to wash my face. Great start but hoping for more improvement.

      Anyone have any advice for me on what the next step should be after zz cream? There are so many different things to try I feel overwhelmed. I know the first step should be zz, but whats the next most common step? Also I am hesitant to try something that could make me worse. I'd prefer to try something that will either help or have no effect rather than something that may get better or worse.

        Update: I am starting a low carb (about 25g a day) and no refined sugar diet to see if this helps. Still sad about the zz cream since I've tried it multiple times on my wrist and had a red blotchy patch on my skin.

          I used a product with Niacinamide a few weeks ago and it really burned my skin. I only used it once and my face looked like I was burned and it stayed like that for two days. I never saw my face that red before. This was a few weeks ago.
          Good news is lately my skin has been looking much better after trying skin barrier repair creams and reducing sugar. I was using dermalex, after a few days I broke out so I decided to use it maybe once or twice a week to continue to see if it helps me and use a different barrier cream. I tried Skinfix barrier repair. It is not a recommended product for rosacea but I needed to try a repair cream so I sampled it and it has helped so much.
          I still have a tiny bit of sugar in my coffee but if I have other sweets I will only have treats sweetened with honey. I haven't eliminated bread but I barely have any. I also do not eliminate fruits or anything foods with natural sugars. This past week my skin has looked the best it has for a year. If it were to stay like this I would be very happy. Something interesting to note is that my last flush episode (after doing all this) my face turned red but not my nose. I thought that was unusual for me since that was the only place on my face that flushes.

            Rtstar,
            Sad you reacted to the ZZ cream. As you have learned, sugar is the fuel that burns the inflammation in rosacea. Reduce the fuel, it puts the fire out. Doesn't matter if it is sucrose, glucose, galactose, fructose or any other 'tose.' You might want to try azeliac acid topical and see if your sensitive skin reacts to it? I have been using it for about three weeks and it is improving my rosacea/SD/folliculitis.

              I hear you about the sugar. Thats going to be the hardest thing I've ever had to do but I am going to try it by slowly going off it. Thank you for the advice, I'll give azeliac acid a try. I just bought the 10% azelc acid from the ordinary in the meantime because I don't have a perception yet. Im going to make another blog on irosacea.org that way I can organize all the products Ive tried with what is and what isn't helping my progress.

                Rtstar,
                Really appreciate you making a rosacea blog with the RRDi. It is so sad to me that rosaeans have left RF to just a handful of active users to all the social media platforms and prefer it that way. All the rosacea data here at RF and the RRDi is worth searching if you have the patience to find it. There isn't anything 'new' when you search the social media rosacea platforms and the repetition is so redundant, especially 'Is this rosacea?' over and over.

                  Yes Im excited to start my blog, I just took some time on trying the products I purchased so I could thoroughly review them! So far I tried 3 that I'm ready to review. Hopefully my blog will be useful for someone else.

                    Following.

                    Tried all sorts.

                    Had a perm red nose cheeks since 16 years old. I am 32 now.

                    ZZ cream just burns for me although it did originally help.

                    I mainly just wash my face with just water hot and cold and when the cold water goes on and nothing else it looks less redder.

                    I have too much of a greasy t zone for the redness to remain low and so within a few hours im really sweaty and oily.

                    I have been having more tea recently so may try green tea.

                    I apply the mirvaso cream's most days have you tried that? I even leave it in the friday to keep it cool when applying. If i have a bright red nose this sometimes helps.

                    I do apply a little makeup, but if i have a warm day or really oil t zone it just smears off.

                    Does the air purifier really work?

                      I think it was an inflammatory condition of the subcutaneous tissue from Staphylococcus aureus.
                      Yes, I think it is a staph that got deeper in the skin due to too strong laser treatment that greatly weakened the skin's immune system. This antibiotic helped me a lot and what surprised me a lot was the positive effect after 3 hours of use.

                      Consider whether you have cellulitis / subcutaneous tissue inflammation. Because it is possible from staph or other bacteria.
                      Right now my inflammation has changed a lot and my skin is the best I've had since a nose problem
                      Hi are you in the UK or states?

                              Shame, was keen to see if it would work for a lot of us.
