    Default Gi doctor treats rosacea patients will ibs medication.

    I was just looking at rosacea vids on you tube when I came across one of this GI doctor named Leonard Weinstock. He conducted a study testing bacterial infections in the gut in relation to rosacea. He found that most patients with rosacea tested postive for a bacterial overgrowth called SIBO. After treating them with a medication called Xifaxan most of their redness and symptoms went away. If someone else has already made everyone aware of this..sorry just thought it was really interesting.http://www.stltoday.com/lifestyles/h...878744746.html
