    What else did you do with your skin while you were using the ZZ cream every day? Any cleanser, moisturiser etc?
    Yes I do, a small, watery maintenance dose once or twice a week.

    It would be best to post non-revelaing pics of your face in order to understand what you're experiencing, but the symptoms do match a die-off. No, I don't think sugar would cause that.

    I only used ZZ Cream. Nothing else. After about a year I started using sulphur soap and DS' Acarid Soap.
    How I was cured from Demodectic / Demodex Rosacea (Types 1 & 2 & nearing 3), Seborrhoeic Dermatitis and Eczema

    Got a smartphone? Then please post a non-revealing pic of your face/skin to www.imgur.com, instead of using walls of text to describe it to us. It may be the best thing you've ever done!

    For me, increased sugar intake does increase redness, despite using ZZ cream. Brady Burrows' book 'The Rosacea Diet' is all about the role of carbohydrates and sugars in causing flushing and redness. The easiest thing to do is to control your intake of carbohydrates and see if this makes a difference.

    Thanks. Tried to attache to photos. It is hard to capture on photos because most of the bumps are skin coloured. They seem to start calming down now tho since I re-started ZZ-cream every day.

    Yeah I remember reading something similar. But since all carbs are sugars, does that mean that any carb in theory can cause this? I haven't really experienced any flushing or redness I think. I was personally refering more to simple sugars such in ice cream etc. I believe I eat a fairly high amount og carbs from "regular" foods which doesn't seem to cause any problems.
