    Ok, well I'm on antidepressants and I'm still living a "real" life, whatever that means.
    Also, that wasn't the only possible solution I suggested to you. You are sounding a little resistant to help,...

    I was very, very close to suicide a little over a year ago due to neurogenic rosacea, so I know what you're feeling. There are medications that can help- what have you tried so far? Mirtazapine and...

    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...

    Hi Dave- I've been there so I'm so sorry to hear you're going through this. Last summer I was VERY close to suicide due to a sudden onset of debilitating facial flushing. It's been less than a year...

    Ah, just saw this- thanks for reporting back! Good to know that the aspirin has been working for you. I haven't really given that a try yet.

    It's been helping. I'm about 3 months in. The dose I'm taking is a little less than what I've seen recommended for my weight so I may ask my doctor to bump up my dosage at some point. It's certainly...

    Hi Molly,
    Thanks for sharing- I'll be interested to hear how you get on. I'm currently in the middle of trialing another drug (hydroxychloroquine) but I am considering trying Protopic as well since...

    Saying that "western medicine has nothing to offer" is a ridiculous claim.
    Organic/"natural" ingredients are not always better for skin than synthetic/chemical ingredients. Many natural ingredients...

    There is no cure to rosacea and what you're doing is nothing novel.

    I think a lot of people on here have the same symptoms and agree they seem to be related to rosacea but not the "typical" case. The evening flush could be a lot of things- but in general people's...

    Do you think facial erythromelalgia and neurogenic rosacea are different in some ways? My symptoms sound spot on to yours.

    Wow, that's good to hear since I also have constant swelling in my face, which might bother me even more than the bad flushing. Did your primary care doctor prescribe it to you? I wonder if there's...

    That's interesting about the diet helping. I've been pretty strict about what I eat since this flushing started but not to that extent- I might try that for a while just to see if it helps. I've done...

    I definitely wouldn't use the machine made for legs on your face. IPL should be done in a dermatologists' office.
    Mine got worse after a series of IPL but it's beneficial for some.

    I think I have the same issue. It's possible my neurogenic rosacea coincidentally started while I was doing IPL treatments but I do feel like there is at least a chance that the treatments aggravated...
