    That's great news- I just got prescribed accutane for edema. I have to wait a month to start it due to iPledge, but I'll post updates on the forum about my experience once I start it. How long did it...

    Thanks so much for updating us on your results. Even though the flushing isn't improved for you, I'm really intrigued that your swelling went down since that is a big problem for me. I know what you...

    I think Accutane is often used for rhinophyma, but I'm not positive about that. Has your derm brought that up? I know CO2 lasers are used for any phytamous changes of the skin too.

    For me it just didn't really do anything. I was on it for a little over 3 months and then stopped. I had no side effects and no issues when I stopped it though, which was good.

    That's interesting how everyone is different. I do much better on a mostly vegan diet- no dairy, eggs, or meat. I eat a lot of vegetables, fish, beans, gluten-free grains, sweet potatoes, etc. My...

    Thank you for the update! I hope that the side effect gets cleared and that the Accutane helps you. It worked great for me when I was younger- I took it when I was about 19 (over a decade ago) for...

    Do you think you're having rebound redness from Mirvaso? It's very common.

    I do better with plant-based diets that are dairy and gluten free and very low in refined sugar or carbohydrates. The paleo/low-carb diets that are trendy right now never worked for me.

    Got it- thanks for the reply! Sounds like our symptoms are a little different then, though I do get the evening flushing and the red ears as well. I've found the less I eat in the evening better, but...

    Sorry to hear your results are just average so far- hopefully they take a turn for the better. Is flushing your only symptom or do you get facial swelling/edema as well?

    Beta-blockers haven't really worked for me either. I seem to do much better on anti-inflammatory meds, specifically doxycycline and hydroxychloroquine.

    Also, that wasn't the only possible solution I suggested to you. You are sounding a little resistant to help,...

    That's fascinating. Thank you for sharing your results. I have similar symptoms to you (flushing/swelling on nose/cheeks and laying down is a trigger) so I'll consider trying this in the future.

    Pretty good! I'd say it helped my flushing/residual swelling at least 30%, maybe more. Heat is my worst trigger so with cooler weather coming I might have more improvement.

    If it's only been 8 days I think there's still hope it'll calm down- treat your skin as gently as possible for now and see if it heals up. Did you do the treatment in a dermatologist's office? The...
