    Default Do you feel thirsty alot?

    I was just wondering if this is a symptom shared by other roasaceans.

    It seems like I always need to carrrry a bottle of water with me
    wherever I go. I was thinking maybe we aren't properly absorbing
    water and nutrients.

    Has anyone done any pH testing of their skin?

    Skin pH over 6.5, less acidic, causes two problems. First, the normal protective barrier breaks down and skin cells are pulled away from one another. The skin becomes irritated and susceptible to further damage by environmental irritants. Second, there is an increased risk of infection because the growth of bacteria and yeasts is no longer controlled by the normal acidity on the skin.2

    I am thirsty at all times, but I don't know if that's caused by rosacea. I keep drinking almost non-stop during the day.

    I wake up 3-4 times during the night to drink water and then wake up 2-3 times to pee.
    take care,

    I carry water everywhere - more as a safety blanket than for thirst though. That is, if I feel a flush coming on, some water can often help cool me down and relax.

    Still, I would say I am one of the more thirsty people I know

    Me too. I've always drunk loads and loads of water, to the extent that my mother-in-law (a retired nurse) thought I might have diabetes when she first knew me! I don't though - have done the fasting blood glucose tests and I'm always fine, and don't think I have any diabetes risk factors. The thirst predated my rosacea by many years, and I doubt very much there's any connection there for me.

    I'm always thirsty as well and I drink a load of water everyday. Maybe I should get my ph levels tested, any idea where one goes to conduct these tests?

    you should be able to just go to a pharmacy and buy some ph sticks if you want to test your urine.

    hahaha! I'm just the same. I often feel to have a dry mouth. When I tell people I drink around 2.5 litres of water everyday they think I'm mad... but 2 litres is the recommendation isn't it?

    Default thirsty

    I am always thirsty, or have a dry mouth. My eyes are always dry too and sore, my skin is dry and sore.

    I have had all the tests for other ailments, but they show up clear?
