    You can expect some extra redness for the first couple of weeks. This is the die off of the demodex mites. It is the decaying bodies that causes the redness, and sometimes bumps. After that,...

    Have you had a look at the Erythromelalgia Association? They have a guide to help you find a local expert in the condition. They have a great guide to all sorts of possible treatments:...

    I agree laser/IPL is a gamble every time you have it. Some people who are really pleased with early treatments, then have a laser treatment they're very unhappy with later on.

    I'm not sure if the...

    I've found Soolantra, and more recently, Zhongzhou cream helpful for type 1 rosacea (redness/flushing). Zhongzhou is better, and is best applied with a watery finger so you get a very thin layer of...

    I'm normally keen to try a new medication that might work, but I did read a lot of anecdotal reports about Carvedilol where it caused vasodilation and made the rosacea worse. I have a pack of it,...

    I agree Soolantra is a nice option - but I'd beware it does seem to stop working for some people after a while. I still sometimes use it as it's a nice moisturiser that rosacea skin tolerates well...

    A lot of people do dilute it. Do you have any remainder of that burn or has it completely healed? Because lasers and most oral medications have the potential to cause permanent damage in a...

    Yeah that's right. Efracea is about £30 a month I think, unless you get it on NHS prescription in UK. It may be more in other countries.

    I see you are in the UK, so you should be able to get...

    I agree lemon juice (and Mirvaso) sound a very aggressive approach - not likely to help.

    Have you tried Zhongzhou cream Boris? I used to use Soolantra but it stopped working. It's important people are aware of low risk options that are very helpful for rosacea. Many people are...

    I would be very careful with Mirvaso as a lot of people say it causes them rebound redness and permanent worse flushing. I find using Zhongzhou cream available from www.demodex.co.uk reduces the...

    I highly recommend that you don't take vitamin k - it causes clotting of the blood vessels, which is really not a good idea in type 1 rosacea. I noticed the bad effects of it just taking vitamin k...

    I find soolantra, and more so Zhongzhou cream, very helpful for type 1 rosacea yes. The purpose is to kill demodex mites, which interfere with the skin in all types of rosacea, the research is now...

    You might have to move GPs- they should be able to give you Efracea - 40mg doxycyline - given the problems you are experiencing. Efracea has been around for a while now. There's no good reason not...

    This seems to be a lot of people's experience with laser with a competent operator. They don't get a problem on the first treatment, but somewhere down the line after a number of treatments. It...

    The flushes will be reduced in severity. It partly depends how much vascular damage you have, when you begin to treat for demodex mites. Demodex mites do seem to encouraged to grow in numbers and...
