    Default LCD monitor bad for my rosacea

    Hi

    When i sitting in front of my computer or tv It makes my face extremely red and itchy. Wonder If anyone has the same problem as me, and if there's something to do about it. Its hard to not use the computer in these days.

    I have a similar problem:
    I flush when i use an LCD screen for over 15 minutes or so.
    My solution - stick with the old CRT screens.

    Yes, me too. Didn't know if it was the screen causing the problems, or my stress levels from reading too much stuff about rosacea on the internet!!

    I've done some research about fluorescent lights that may be of help:

    Perhaps an LED backlit monitor may help?

    I sometimes wonder if it has anything to do with wireless networks.There seems to be some evidence that they can cause flushing in sensitive individuals.
