    Absolutely, and by the way, Zein Obagi products are toxic and sooooo expensive they are hardly worth it. I wouldn't call him an authority on anything let alone rosacea.

    I'll hold off all medications and see what happens. While diet is key, sometimes it's just not enough- I've always eaten really healthy but that didn't stop the flare-up I had a few months ago...

    Thanks Mknlvi- I've used it for 3 months but stopped as of today. I'm interested to see if my usual skincare routine can keep the rosacea contained. Shame seems like no "cure" for this da*n disease...

    Don't gamble on stuff like this- I only did 3 sessions and it's not worth it. It doesn't get rid of redness and capillaries long-term, and it does come with side effects. I have lost some volume...

    Hi Samar2000
    I wouldn't say it's harder for women- maybe until 20 years ago that was true but now men are just as diligent about their looks. Especially if one has my history where I've been bullied...

    sounds like you have a rosacea/seb dermatitis combination. I'm fairly certain of it. I doubt it's accutane-induced but not certain on that issue as there are cases of accutane-induced...
