I have been cheating on my rosacea diet some, like having some ice cream and other sugary delights, but I do try to stick to low carbohydrate, no sugar, most of the time.
    Glad to hear it is working for you.
    Borax baths seems to help alleviate a variety of skin conditions.
    It is soothing, probably due to it's anti inflammatory effects.
    It seems to have antimicrobial effects too.
    I even used it on the nose of my dog for a fungal issue, (delivered in HP) and it worked well.

    Brady could you please state your estimated amount of carbs per day, assuming you stick to your diet?

    Could you also please state how much fibre you eat and what type?

    Basically I eat a high protein diet of eggs, cheese, cottage cheese, fish, chicken, beef or pork. I do eat green vegetables, sweet potatoes, salads, Quinoa, oats, corn chips. Probably around 200 to 300 grams of carbohydrate a day is my estimate. And as I have indicated, I cheat on occasion. I get plenty of fiber with green vegetables, i.e., broccoli, asparagus, green peppers, spinach, as well as beans. I try to avoid sugar and carbohydrate in the form of high fructose corn syrup or other sugars, avoiding high starch food, i.e., white potatoes, white rice, white flour.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but this current diet of yours is vastly different from the one you were doing some years ago, where you were consuming around 50 grams of carbs per day?

    I probably average about the same amount of carbs on some days, a bit more on others, depending on my state at the time.
    Like you, I avoid the easily digestible carbs in general. I rarely eat anything out of a packet and when I do, it is usually just a gluten free cookie.

    Correct. The Rosacea Diet is limited to 30 grams carbohydrate for 30 days. This simple method will determine whether avoiding sugar/carbohydrate improves rosacea or not. After the thirty days I have advocated alternating the diet to suit your individual diet according to your rosacea.
