    I don't necessarily think you need to eat plain foods. Last night I had a spaghetti sauce made with grass fed beef mince, canned tomatoes, loads of basil, garlic, onion and oregano and a dash of...

    Forgot to add - the first time I had burning from my rosacea was right after my nose job (I regret nothing! My nose is so pretty now) when I spent a week lolling about doing nothing. I earned the ire...

    I've been awol as have been engaging in a little self-experimentation. Figured it irresponsible to post about every abuse I'm giving my body.

    Oh, and I'm 25 too, have had rosacea for years but until now you'd never really have known. It seems quite unfair that we should get a disease that's generally associated with middle age but... it's...

    I cannot say enough about pills. Clonidine, propranolol, remeron, zyrtec. Bless them all!

    There's something to be admired about those who tough it out and deal with rosacea through diet and other...

    What Driven said.

    An alkaline diet seems like a very fancy elimination diet, especially if you pay for the privilege like I did. $300 to find out I should avoid citrus and chili? Ugh.

    Apparently sulfur works best on the p&p type, although I had a fantastic response too. I'd tell anyone with mild to moderate rosacea to try sulfur as their first treatment. And to never put it on...
