    Default Raw garlic works well for me

    Hello:
    Haven't been on this forum for a long time because my rosacea seemed to go into remission as long as I watched the sugar and alcohol. Well, I went on a vacation with unlimited booze and really lived it up. My rosacea came back and it was so bad! My eyes were so red and swollen...the puffiness on the left eye went all the way down to the middle of my cheek. Not attractive! Anyway, when I returned home I immediately ate a clove of raw garlic each night before bed (yes, I smell so I try not to get too close to people.) Anyway, after only three days my eyes are clearing up. They are not nearly as red or puffy. I almost look normal. So, just in case someone wants to try raw garlic I thought I would share. I take the clove, peel it, cut it up into pill-sized pieces and swallow them like a pill. I've heard that you can overdo it so be careful and don't get carried away.
    Regards,
    Queta

    Awesome - I might try this at some point!

    I think I did read something about smelling like garlic when you eat a lot of it? Like some substance of the garlic comes out through the skin?

    Yes, Vanilla. That is the downside. It can be smelly. I have been trying to avoid people. Lucky for me I have a flexible schedule so I can work around the smelly times. I told my husband he just has to deal for awhile until I get my rosacea back under control. I have found that once it gets under control I only have to take garlic once or twice a week. Some people use low odor capsules. I haven't really tried them, to be honest so I'm not sure if they would have the same effect.

    Default I find Garlic the best

    I have not longed on for a long time.

    Use to come here every night at my night audit job.

    Between garlic and this great cream a young bohemian lady made I have found much peace.

    She went to college and is now putting out a line of products.

    I got one bottle that I still have- the initial bottle- that has kept up... I ordered another one- to compare to see if the first was losing power...


    Her lotion is by far the best I have found. I did differin, retina, all of it... metro... honey masks, coconut oil.... the last two being decent... but this stuff the best.

    Anyway, the garlic plays a big part and I give it high praise.

    Hi solutionquest, I remember reading many of your posts. Is the lotion something that's available OTC? Did you ever overcome the computer screen/lights problem? I still have that.

    So your flushing is gone because of the lotion? Or did the lotion help breakouts? I can't recall if you had subtype 1 or 2 or both. What symptoms did the garlic help you with?

    Thanks so much for coming back and sharing what helped you.

    Hi Queta, glad you've found some relief with raw garlic, I think it's a powerful natural remedy. I use it for a different reason than you, it helps control my folliculitis problem that was brought on by antibiotics. I try to use as fresh as possible, non-irradiated garlic and to get an even more powerful kick I slice or crush it, allowing it to rest for a short while so the allicin can be released. Maybe it's not necessary but I read that it increases the effects. Luckily my girlfriend loves garlic just as much as me. Hope you manage to stay symptom free.

    I think garlic actually causes me to flush. I eat it anyway but have to watch the amount. I cannot do things like fire cider with too much onions and garlic.

    You can buy Allicin Max in the UK, it claims to be the only garlic supplement with pure Allicin in it, which is the ingredient you want. I have been taking it for three years to try and alleviate my folliculitis.

    I can't take raw garlic, I get an awful stomach ache after it, so this product was a find for me. You can get it on Amazon UK and maybe some specialist health shops. About 10 for 30 days use but I buy a 90 day batch and double the dose.

    Hi Charlie 74, so the supplement has worked well for you? Besides the fact that fresh garlic upsets your gut, I suppose the convenience of the supplement is handy as well. We have a supplement here called ALLI-BIOTIC that contains the patented Allisure that's found in most quality brands so maybe I should try it out.

    My problem is not as bad as it once was but I can't attribute that to just Allicin alone, however since I have been taking this along with vitamin C in large doses it has calmed down but not eliminated it. Anything is worth a try. I never get colds or flu though so that's a good thing, not had anything in two years.
