    Hi J,

    Some months ago I started fasting seriously. I had been slowly changing my diet over to one of high fibre, legumes, cooked, cooled, reheated potatoes for the resistant starch, etc, plus lots of green leafy vege. I did find, even prior to fasting my overnight flushing was significantly reduced. In general my face was so much better too.
    However, my upper right cheek and to some extent, the left continue to flush over night if I don't sleep slightly elevated and I musn't let my cheeks touch the pillow etc.. due to the brimonidine and oral metronizadole damage. (Lots of visible vasculature).
    I seemed to recover pretty well with my usual ice pack application however and wasn't debilitated on a daily basis.

    Once this diet was in place (over a long time), I was able to easily implement intermittent fasting for 16 to 20 hours daily or most days.
    Some months ago I started throwing in a 24 hour fast once per week, with a total of three fasts.
    Even better results.
    I was able to go to the mall and do some clothes shopping, which was virtually impossible previously.

    Then I had dental surgery on the 30 May. Extraction of root canal which had an infection at the root, and bone graft.
    Two days prior to surgery, within 1 hour of my first antibiotic (amoxicillin), my face was flushing. Course was 5 days and it just got worse and worse and it took around 6 weeks for my stupid face to settle down.
    My gut was messed up too and I reacted to everything I ate.

    Of interest, my severe Hashimoto's where the TSH was around 26 with antibodies in the 6000's is now very good. (I've never taken medication, as supplements kept the free t3 and t4 at pretty good levels most of the time).
    TSH 1.8. I have had regular testing over the years and never managed to get the TSH down below 10 in general.
    Whilst I know the infection may have been a player, I am doubtful as it wasn't present initially.

    Time will tell if my thyroid function continues to improve or if the test was just done in a good phase.

    Now for the bad news, seeing some people on here have had some pleasing results from topical vitamin C, I decided to tentatively test Paula's choice. Tiny patch areas. All seemed okay. But, as soon as I was exposed to heat and mild stress one day two weeks ago, I had severe flushing, burning and buzzing and I have not recovered. Alas. I have lost about 2 to 4 years improvement. All gone in a silly experiment.

    And that is my update.
    Sorry to hijack this thread, but wanted to reply to your enquiry as to my current state.

    I am very glad you are faring so much better!!

    Oh you poor thing!

    I know that thyroid issues can further complicate rosacea!!

    Never give up hope my friend, these particular LDN drops (although vile to taste) have been a game-changer for me.

    Specifically for the gut, I find taking Wachters Sea Klenz with Phytoenzymes helpful - I think it does help me with digestion issues caused by antibiotics. I also find Symprove probiotic helpful as well for the gut and the rosacea.
