    Symprove has had the best results from research studies compared to other probiotics that it works, but everyone's gut is different. Another I've found helpful, but less so, is Solgar Acidiophilus...

    A good probiotic (symprove) is helpful for rosacea to manage the gut microbiome whether or not you take medications. I also use diet to manage my rosacea but it is not sufficient.
