  • Tranexamic acid solution soaking is an excellent approach for rosacea patients

    Another Antifibrinolytic linked to clearing Rosacea. Would be interesting to read the full article and the result of aminocaproic acid lotion used in the following trial:

    Interesting. I'd like to know more details too, but not badly enough to pay Wiley the $42 for access to the letter.

        In the UK, Tranexamic acid is available over the counter. Two poducts, cyklo-f and Femstrual. Both contrain 500mg tablets of Trnexamic acid. It is also used as a mouth wash.
        Below is a description how to make a solution from crushing the tablets in water. I don't know how safe this is to use on skin as there doesn't ssem to be much information about it. It is used in wounds etc to stop bleeding.

          Tranexamic acid is used in cosmetics in the Far East (Japan/Korea) as a skin lightening agent.

            I attached the letter to this post.
            (Yes it is ridiculous they want to charge that amount of money for free information. No wonder any new Rosacea treatment is taking so painstakingly long.)

            From the letter it summaries that soaking skin twice a week with TA will rapidly improve Rosacea and appears to be safe and cheap.

                  I am really tempted to try this! Does anyone know if these tablets would be suitable:
                  http://www.boots.com/en/Boots-Pharma...lets-_1178972/

                  Any ideas on how to apply this to your skin, would diluting it with water be the best option?

                  Any suggestions on how many tablets should you use per application?

                  Lastly any recommendations on how long to apply this to your skin?


                  Thanks in advance!

                    Just been doing a bit of searching on this matter and came across this article:

                    http://informahealthcare.com/doi/abs...ournalCode=jcl

                    Not too sure if it is a reliable source but it may not be useful for Rosacea sufferers.

                      I would be somewhat concerned that, according to the link, topical TA produces erythema.

                        Thanks for that, I searched everywhere for it.

                          I totally get that you want to try it. BUT
                          Please be careful with this. Remember the whole oxymetazoline rebound thing. Or the brimonidine situation.
                          You could get unwanted side effects, make the whole thing worse etc.

                            Hi thanks for your reply.

                            I think I got a little over excited but when I reflected on the situation I realised I could actually make things a whole lot worse! Consequently I am going hold back from trying this treatment. Roll on Sansrosa!!!
