    Default Hello.

    Just wanted to introduce myself, Im a 19 year old male who has had rosacea for the last few years, I saw dermatologists, who misdiagnosed me, in fact before I researched it myself and told the doctor what i had I never heard of this condition. I just wanted to say Hi because I think this is a wonderful site which takes some of the fear of Rosacea away.

    What were you misdiagnosed with before you got a diagnosis of rosacea?

    Hi NorthNova and welcome to the RF
    I am sorry you were misdiagnosed. I hope you have a dermatologist now that is more helpful.
    What treatments have you tried so far?

    Like Brady, I am curious also as to what the doctor diagnosed you with initially. We have a helpful thread you may want to check out:

    Here is a link that is helpful for an overview of rosacea and treatments:

    Best wishes,
