    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...

    Thanks for the update on your progress- hope it continues to work for you.

    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...

    Thanks so much to everyone who responded and for the great advice. I agree when I describe my symptoms as just "flushing" to doctors they probably think superficial redness = cosmetic concern. ...

    Hi all,
    Question for people who have tried hydroxychloroquine for flushing/neurogenic rosacea. I was just prescribed 200 mg/day - I'm wondering if this is a large enough dosage? Seems like most...

    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...

    Unfortunately I haven't really, though I will say eating lighter in the evening (I try not to eat at all after 6pm) has helped with flushing at night laying down to sleep. My next step is to try...

    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...

    Most people need maintenance laser treatments about once a year. Capillaries are stubborn and have a tendency to return.

    I haven't really looked into Lyrica yet- I thought that was more for pain, or is that not the case? I actually don't have the pain symptom, which seems like it's fairly common with neurogenic...
