    Hello Dr Crouch

    Thank you again for answering our questions.

    I was just curious to know what advise you give for sun protection to your patients that had IPL or PDL treatments? I'v had PDL treatments last fall and I'm going on vacation on a cruise next month. I don't want to ruin the results I got with my treatments. Is our skin more sensitive to the sun after we had this kind of treatments? Some say yes, some say no...

    Thanks again!

    Claude

    Hi, Dr. Crouch.

    I've not been concretely been diagnosed with rosacea, however I clearly have symptoms that would point to it being that. I'm going to have laser treatment next month, and I'm curious to if that does help, is that evidence that I have rosacea, and if not, how will the doctor determine if I actually have rosacea? She has looked at all my symptoms but have not yet diagnosed me. It's frustrating to not get an actual diagnosis because I've had the symptoms for so long, what would you suggest do next to find out if it is rosacea? I'm 20 years old and there for my doctors have doubts, because apparently it's very, very rare to get at my age? Also; I have relatively mild redness and my doctor has said that laser treatment would take away the redness by 50% at best, is that true in all cases?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Dr Crouch,

    Would you recommend YAG laser for dealing with flushing after eating? This has become a persistent trigger for me. I am currently taking propranalol which does not seem to be helping with this aspect.

    Any help much appreciated, thanks for your time.
