    My rosacea used to be severe - as in deep red flushing of my whole face. It was a 10+. Now I'd say - if I can stay out of hot rooms - I'm about a 2 or 3. In a hot room, where my face might sting and...

    I hear ya. It sounds hardcore. But it's not. I didn't just turnaround one morning and take all of the "bad food" out of my diet. And I never was 100 percent with any of it. We have to be realistic -...

    Hi, yes, I did have a couple of basic allergy tests - one with an allergist MD and another a derm. I had a mild reaction to shrimp in one test. And a reaction to nickel in the other.

    I had this problem. I was barely sleeping most nights at its worst. If you look at some old threads on sleeping & flushing - you'll see me asking for help about it.

    Thank you so much, Cal. One of the challenges of those suffering here is that when some get better and fade off from the forum - we don't know what may have helped them. Thank you for your kindness...

    Hi Rich, my flushing/rosacea wasn't from Accutane. I never took that. My understanding from past folks on here who've had Accutane-induced rosacea is that they were taking oral Accutane - the brand...

    Hi, Do you guys think this can help type 1 rosacea? Mine is primarily flushing and redness. Not much in the way of breakouts.

    Yeah, not sure how exactly it works. Sulfur is a huge component of our body - so it plays a key role. MSM is a great detoxifier - so perhaps that has something to do it.

    Here are a couple of...

    BTW, you shouldn't start out with MSM at a high dose and you don't have to take as much as I am to see results. MSM also has a detoxifying effect, so it's best to start slow and see how you do as you...

    You don't appear to have rosacea. Rather, acne. Specifically closed comedones. You probably should seek out a second opinion with another derm. I think you've been incorrectly diagnosed.
