    Nathini beat me to the article on men (gay or straight) IN GENERAL being more attuned to physical appearance. But some gay men don't care about looks, including rosacea, some straight men don't care,...

    Rosacea III is a topical application of sulfur, zinc and other minerals. It may help with rosacea acne-like breakouts (pustules and papules), but as sulfur may also help seb derm, it may be useful to...

    If you have patchy red marks, flaky skin, dandruff, and, most importantly, no unusual flushing response to heat, cold, stress, exercise, alcohol and other common rosacea triggers, it seems much more...

    Constant flaky/oily redness sounds more like seb derm to me. If your doctor thinks it's rosacea because there's been no improvement yet, maybe you haven't had the right treatment.

    For me, the big...

    I've been using this daily for several weeks.

    The good news is that my blackheads are only a mild problem. They haven't disappeared completely as they did when I went on antibiotics back in...

    Melissa's right. While a lot of us often have a physical "type" (hey, I used to have a thing for redheads), it's the whole person who appeals to us and keeps us.

    Yeah, starting with someone new is difficult enough. Being self-conscious about something like rosacea makes it even more difficult to be confident about it. But things can still work out quite well,...

    Being less flushy counts as WIN to me, so that's good to know. Too bad about the picture being taken in a different place: I asked her if I could have my picture taken in her office so the lighting...
