    Question Covid Vaccine's and neurogenic rosacea.

    I am doing really well on 1.5 mg of LDN and rarely flush at all nowadays; generally I react to every medication I take herbal or prescribed, I just seem to absorb things really well (however, that in turn makes my body & skin reactive).

    Question, does anyone who has had the UK covid vaccine know how it affects rosacea?

    I appreciate that most will say we have to take a leap of faith, but I don't think I could cope with the return of nerve pain and flushing!


    Thanks

    My friend who does not have Rosacea, had burning bright cheeks for a couple of days after the vaccine, she called me in a panic. It did not last and she is fine.
    It?s a bit scary but we have to go for it regardless.

    Thanks for saying this. I am also nervous about the vaccine. I just think - i have no choice, i have to do it - the alternative is worse.
    Maybe I'll take some nsaid's / antihistamines day of... idk. (idk if you can even do that).
    Glad it went away for her.
    It's sad / amusing she called you in a panic... to me. I know you are "used to" the burning cheeks, sadly.
    I hope rosaceans write in their responses to the covid vaccine here.
    Take care

    Thank you for your replies.

    In the great scheme of things, burning cheeks and nerve pain are the lesser of the two evils, but after almost 2 years without nerve pain flushing and burning, I can still recall it's effect and trauma to body, mind and soul.

    Please keep your replies coming, I have until May to make my decision!!

    I'm in an erythromelalgia group and occasionally someone notices an ear flare that is temporary but most do good/have no symptoms with the vaccine. That said, that's not the same as neurogenic rosacea (likely). I too react to a lot of medications so I understand your nervousness. I am so glad you are doing well with LDN.
