    Hi, I've got Lupus too and have just been diagnosed with rosacea. Since they're both inflammatory diseases (one of the organs and one of the skin) it makes sense that they'd pair up. Super annoying if you ask me! I did a little research though and came across someone who talked about rosacea being caused by the irritation of tiny mites! Totally freaked out my germaphobia! She said if you get one of those clarisonic type electric face brushes and use the softest brush to clean the skin with cleanser, your rosacea should settle or even go away. So I'm going to try that! Also, further research stated that plaquenil which we use for lupus can settle the skin a little. I've been naughty and not been taking mine but I'll get back on it now if it might help.

    My gp prescribed me doxycycline and it hasn't made that much of a difference at all.
