I am going to give the diet thing a good try. Nothing to lose, right! (Well, except the sensory pleasure of eating chocolate and other sweet foods which is not to be discounted :-)) It's very encouraging to hear about other people's success and I'm very pleased for you that your flushing has reduced so much, so thanks for sharing this.
In terms of sunlight, that's very interesting - I'm generally pretty careful with the sun but do find my skin seems to do better when it's warmer and mildly humid/I get a little bit of sun on my body (maybe because this is good for the eczema and the eczema seems to flare my rosacea up - they egg each other on, so to speak).
My suggestion is strenghten your skin barrier A multivitamin for starter if you can handle them and you're not already taking any. To me it sounds as if you're having a mite allergy, even more so since you're allergic to dust mites and cat dander. It can get worse at night (heat, humidity, stress) so that's a hint. If you haven't tried something like tea tree oil to get rid of your own mites that would be the best way to start, simply adding a few drops to your facial cream and then increasing it.
Histamine rich food might contribute a lot, I've always been eating an anti histamine diet, but it seems as if I have to go even further. Since you do have pollen allergy that might worsen your symtoms during that season. What type/s of pollen are you allergic to?
Are you aware of cross reactions to food while being allergic to pollen?
Best of luck!
Me too, I also react very badly to fish oil.
The type of pollen I am sensitive to is called Timothy Grass (it was a very specific test). The IgE test didn't show up any food allergies but I'm aware you can have food sensitivities without being strictly "allergic" - having said that, I haven't noticed any particular sensitivities (although alcohol and thermally hot foods seem to be a trigger, so I have cut out alcohol and try to let my food cool before eating). It is definitely worth experimenting with low histamine foods in my diet I think though.
There was a thread here, I think, about someone with asthma that cut wheat and got rid of both rosacea and asthma. If you're going to cut grains it gets difficult to test for celiac disease afterwards. It includes all sorts of symptoms, not only the most common ones you read about, it can also be a silent celiac disease with no symptoms. However, since you then have to be strict about gluten it is nice to know.
Other allergies can also affect you at night time.
I would at least cut candy for a while since the sugar often derive from grass, no nutrients lost. I would eat less grass (grains, rice, corn), especially during pollen season. Food sensitivities can be severe even if they're usually not if measured by ambulance rides. They can cause inflammation in the colon. What I could find was that wheat, grains, tomato, peanut, peas, soy, onion, melon could be linked to grass pollen allergy. And shellfish, clam, oyster, snail to mite allergy.
Coconut is rich in histamine.
Since you do have asthma perhaps TTO isn't the best product. The strangest thing, after a while with TTO my skin wasn't dry anymore. Still, salt might be better?
If you don't treat it, it WILL worsen, and you don't want that, believe me!https://rosaceagroup.org/The_Rosacea...ies/nowink.gif
