    What I notice is that a lot of very young people with rosacea symptoms have been joining the forum lately.

    Also, if/when I pay attention, I see many people with red, blotchy skin in my area.

    Personally, I think rosacea has been under diagnosed in the past because people were not as aware as we are today. I know some people here feel that it is over diagnosed but I think it is just that people are more on top of these things today with the internet availability of so much info and people being more health conscious in general.

    I believe I did have rosacea in my teens and twenties (with very mild symptoms at that time and hence the reason I did not seek medical attention) before I was officially diagnosed and I think it is more common in younger people than once thought.

    I absolutely agree. A quick roam around the various rosacea forums clarifies this.

    I don't understand why the medical community is often so slow to realise and accept this fact. After all, they see numerous patients in their offices each day and surely they should recognise the disease! In the young, included.
    Sometimes I am reminded of the mind set of the 1700's, when blood letting was in fashion. When new ideas weren't easily accepted.
    Previous Numerous IPL.
    Supplements: Niacinamide, Vit K2, low D3, Moderate Dose Vit C, Iodine, Taurine, Magnesium. Very low dose B's. Low dose zinc (to correct deficiency).
    Skin Care: No Cleanser, ZZ cream mixed with Niacinamide gel 4% and LMW HA.

    Treating for gut dysbiosis under specialist care. (This is helping).
    Previous GAPS diet. Testing tolerance of resistant starch.
    Fermented Foods. 2 to 3 days per week, Intermittent fasting -16-18 hours.

    It may also be the season.

    50mg zinc
    50mg magnesium
    25mg diphenhydramine HCI
    Drink filtered/bottled water only, wash with tepid water/moisturizing soap, Rosacea Care moisturizer, tinted ZincO
    I avoid multi-vitamins and most other high-dose vitamins and supplements, oil-based supplements (like omega 3/6, A, and E), nitrite preservatives, sugar, fruit, milk, alcohol, caffeine, exercising in a warm room

    Less is more!

    Old threat, but still very up-to-date. SO MANY people have rosacea and new cases emerge at crazy rate. And yet all we have at our disposal are lasers.
    I don't believe in incurable chronic diseases. I believe the remedy is there, but hasn't been discovered.
