    Thank you both for your input.

    Sejon, I also have experienced beard rash before, so I'm certainly not ruling that out. Like yourself, mine have also previously resolved upon/after shaving,...

    Hi Tom,

    Many thanks for your response. Your suggestions are very interesting - quite coincidentally, I tried this very approach (though not, I should add, in relation to the specific problem I'm...

    Basic SD query

    As some regular posters may recall, I had a very bad experience with soolantra cream in 2018. This is elaborated on in the monster soolantra thread, but I have a specific query over one element of...

    Optimal face-washing frequency

    I posted in a couple of older threads recently (on the topic of 'Pityriasis Folliculorum') about my return to active face-washing, after not using any cleansing products and only rinsing with water...

    I went through a fairly unproductive GP appt just yesterday (though I've experienced much worse in the past), and can very much empathise with what you went through. It's really quite absurd that, on...

    I remember it well Brady, even slightly more recently than 10 years ago I'd suggest. I recall clearly how even mentioning demodex in an online post would quickly bring multiple howls of derision. I'm...

    Very interesting thread.

    I'm just going through a somewhat similar experience. I stopped washing my face several years ago and seemed to notice a slight improvement of symptoms at the time - it...

    This is very sad but so, so true in my experience.

    I've lost count of the number of gp's/derm's I've seen for this condition over the years - certainly it's well into double figures - but there...

    Congrats on your success dryad - your recent experience sounds the mirror-opposite of mine; I achieved complete clearance of my symptoms from June-mid August, but have since suffered a terrible...

    It's mupirocin - which will give a clue as to why my current doc is reluctant to re-prescribe.

    Dilemma re: expired medication

    I'll try to keep this brief & to the point;

    Around 3-4 years ago, I was prescribed a certain antibiotic ointment (not a standard rosacea treatment) as a long-shot, 'thinking outside of the box'...

    Thanks Sejon. My skin did initially seem to tolerate soolantra very well. Early on, I even called it 'the best moisturiser I've ever used' - it seemed to be killing two birds with one stone.

    What...

    This certainly sounds plausible to me. I've been clinging to a similar theory, and it does loosely fit with my near-6 month experience with soolantra, which I can summarise as;

    1st 6 weeks:...

    Thank you Miguel. I am aware that p.acnes, and demodex and their associated bacteria would be very likely to show up in a culture, due to their 'normality'. My query was more whether the relative...

    This absolutely chimes with my experience.

    Several years ago I used a 10% sulfur gel on my nose, which at the time was where I almost exclusively got my symptoms. Over several weeks, I observed...

    So I've now limped past the 5-month mark for daily soolantra applications. Unfortunately my situation is little changed, and I have just about run out of capacity for 'accepting' the situation I find...

    You may have been wise. The dilemma I have at the moment is whether to keep pressing on (with the minimum 6-month theory in mind) or to taper down in an attempt to get the oiliness back under control...

    Thanks Nick, that's the data I was referring to.

    Those figures are so dramatically different that there surely has to be something in it. Furthermore, I myself was clear/almost clear after 12...

    I loved the moisturising effect of soolantra - at first. I even described it as 'the best moisturiser I've ever used'. After several months of daily use however, those benefits are long-since gone...

    I should add that this theory does appear to be supported by the soolantra test data. I can't find the direct source off hand, but I've read several times that the success rate was significantly...

    Sejon, you may be interested in my experience with soolantra (the most recent 3 or 4 pages of the huge thread). To summarise, I've been using for nearly 5 months now, and am still struggling with...

    So I think I'm going to give soolantra one more week at daily application levels. That will take me to 5 months exactly.

    As I said in my previous post, it's either the case that the continuing...
