  • Coconut Oil - Thumbs down

    Intro to case: I have subtype 2 rosacea. My mother and grandfather both had the same.

    I have trouble with dry skin on my face this time of year (Fall/Winter). I have not been able to find a moisturizer for my face that does not worsen my case significantly. My wife recommended applying coconut oil on my face before I go to sleep, and in the morning exfoliate with baking soda. I tried this, and my rosacea is worse than ever. I just wanted to add my experience.

    I tried baking soda and oil cleansing when I had type 2 and also found it worsened it. I think the baking soda is way too harsh and aggravates the inflammation while the oil doesn't do anything to help the papules dry out.
