    Hi Dan, have you tried topical Vitamin D, at 0.005%? Studies show it's effectiveness on psoriasis. The brand names are Vertical and Dovonex. Here's some more drug info:...

    Rosacea is so badly defined -- anybody with a red face can claim the diagnosis.

    I agree with ephemerality, above, that the woman in photo looks like she used Accutane.

    Currently, I don't consume any Vitamin D supplements -- I use Vitamin D topically in the lotions I make. Very little Vitamin D travels through the skin barrier, if any, as far as I have been able to...

    Hi Cal, thanks for posting about Vitamin A and cod liver oil.

    What brand did you take, and what dose of each vitamin was in the product you took?

    Cod liver oil is also a good source of...

    Zinc pyrithione (ZP) doesn't dissolve in anything so you can't add it to a shampoo. You can add it of course, but don't expect much from a dump-in method. It will clump up either at the top or the...

    Vanicream is occlusive, which means it's designed to be waxy and hard to wash off. I don't like it because any lotion should be persistent for 12 to 24 hours, but still wash off easily. If a...

    SD looks very much like a closed comedone, so it doesn't have an acne-like pustule (unless you scratch it too much, which of course will take the top off the red bump, and then it will bleed or at...

    Hi dave, you could start with Hibiclens (OTC everywhere, even in the US) to determine if you have a bacterial problem. Massage the Hibiclens onto a wet face for 2 minutes, and rinse with water. ...

    Ketoconazole barely works in my experience -- that's why I tried climbazole and found it to be reasonably effective.

    Flaking skin after using a topical -azole is a sign of healing. Visualize it as a good thing -- conceal the flakes with a malassezia-safe moisturizer, applied with wet fingers so as to soak into the...

    The medical articles seem to be evenly divided as to whether rosaceans have too much or too little Vitamin D. Therefore half of the studies are incorrect, for unknown reasons.

    It also seems...

    All ketoconazole shampoos are made with sulfate-surfactants and you may be experiencing skin irritation and skin drying from the surfactants.

    Or, the dry skin may be an excess of keratin, which...

    Hi aussiechick, I tried Mustella Foam very early in my attempts to treat SD with climbazole, and found it to be completely ineffective. I believe that the climbazole in it isn't dissolved and...

    Squalane oil has a very long carbon chain, 28 to 32, so it can't be metabolized by malassezia.

    Plus, squalane oil has a fairly high HLB number (12), which means it washes off slightly better...

    In some cases, the science of rosacea is currently being researched at a much higher level than I could ever discuss meaningfully. For example, Frank Powell, The Charles Institute of Dermatology,...

    Perhaps dimethicone is an old fashioned treatment for head lice, because like you, I can't find a reliable reference for using it as a miticide or arachnicide or insecticide. With lice, sometimes...

    Galderma probably says that it's using Cetaphil Cream because that's what its patents and clinical trials used as a base cream. There could be problems with using another base cream, from an FDA...

    These ingredients would do no harm. I was surprised to see 2% titanium dioxide, which is a white powder used in sunscreens -- I guess it's used as a colorant so you can see that the horse doesn't...

    Hi Brady, I reworked your chart to show the differences and similarities (attached). 5534

    It's difficult to make any broad statements about these products because first I'd want to know how much...

    I'm glad you posted your questions because I have similar questions. About 6 weeks ago I started using Lumify eyedrops (0.025 bromonidine tartrate) once per week because I was extremely curious,...

    Borax is an old-style product that raises the pH about 2 numbers. The helpfulness of borax is completely historical. Back in the day when most water in the US was pumped from municipal and...

    Malassezia requires oil for its metabolism, but can remain dormant for a very long time.

    However, the dormant spores (remember that malassezia is di-morphic) should be easily washed off in soapy...

    Generally you don't want to put anything directly in your eyes. Plus, I believe it's unnecessary:

    The mites live inside pores and glands, and the mature males come out at night to find a female...
