    Scientific studies show 95% of the adult population have demodex mites - you might not like them, but you probably have them by the laws of probability! The issue in rosacea is that these mites that...

    I appreciate the problem of burning and stinging you describe - I've found controlling demodex mites takes this problem away even better than the redness. Zhongzhou cream and treating the scalp for...

    If you look on Earth Clinic in the Rosacea section, you will see people do take a water-diluted form of borax, but I wouldn't recommend it. There are so many safer internal ways to treat rosacea.

    Yes that's right - Ghost was very concerned with reducing the mite population, and Vaxa Buffer ph is much more convenient than the borax internally.

    Ear flushing does seem to be a very common part of accutane induced rosacea, yes. Most people with rosacea only have a mild problem or no problem with ear flushing, but severe ear flushing seems to...

    Borax internally does seem to help some people but it can be very rough on the stomach. Ghost suggested to me an alternative which is just taken as a supplement and is safer - Vaxa Buffer ph. It is...

    I don't think it's Scleroderma - that is just the main condition and the name of Prof Denton's clinic. He also deals with erythromelalgia at the same clinic - that is what it sounds like because of...

    I think it looks a fairly helpful diet except the rice - I would try swapping this with roast potatoes (with oil not butter) or boiled potatoes for 5 days and see if this helps. Rice is very...

    I think you should get a referral to Professor Chris Denton at the Royal Free Hospital in London who specialises in Raynauds and Erythromelalgia. He is the UK expert on this, and will do all sorts...

    The chillow would be useless to me if I didn't take the medications - you will need to do a combination of things, but yes medications is probably the most important one. Clonidine by itself is...

    For me the spots are the easiest part of rosacea to treat really, with zinc (15mg per day), zhongzhou and diet. I had some tests done which show I have very low levels of inflammation in my body,...

    If you tolerate hydroxychloroquine well on 200mg per day, I suspect you will find it easier to persuade your current rheumatologist or another doctor to give you 400mg per day. Some doctors actually...

    There is very good scientific evidence that everyone pretty much has demodex mites living on them (95% of adults). I suspect rosacea progresses partly because you have more than the average person...

    As you say, laying down is the hardest time to avoid flushing. Various forms of cool pads to put under the pillow case can help - what used to be sold as "chillow".

    For my own case of flushing,...

    Clonidine can reduce blood pressure a little though not that effectively, and this effect tends to reduce over time, so it can help with food flushing a bit (e.g. from a heavy carbohydrate load), but...

    Both tea tree oil and menthol may lead to a little temporary trauma in very sensitive rosacea skin. That's partly why you need to use a carrier oil like almond oil with tea tree oil. I use...

    When demodex mites are killed in reasonable numbers then you do get some initial redness. This should calm down over about 2 weeks. It would be best to find a week when you don't have important...

    I did suffer from a sore tongue in the past, along with the mouth ulcers - mf surgeons were useless really. I got better help from the mouth ulcers website, and then particularly from the tea tree...

    I can't remember if you said if you'd taken roaccutane in the past? The cracked/shedding lips is a problem that can persist long after you finish treatment with that. Vaseline is the best treatment...

    95% of adults have demodex mites - the problem is people with rosacea often have more of them than the average person and they cause damage to the skin and blood vessels. Even if you get rid of...

    It reduces the demodex mite population which reduces flushing and redness. But you do need to be careful that it doesn't make the skin too dry or the epidermis will be impaired in which case you'll...

    I agree with laser cat - my experience is you get vasodilation, so not worth it for me.

    Nearly everyone seems to get this effect on the eyes in the first week or so (i.e. a little stinging or tearing) then the eyes seem to be de-sensitised to it, but as Brady says try to keep the ZZ...

    My skin stopped flushing significantly when moving from showers to bath, but I don't submerge my head, I wash my hair over the washbasin and don't get water on my face or ears. It's the chlorinated...

    I have a problem with chlorinated tap water, not with mineral water. Also, showering is a particularly drying process on the skin.
