    Default Does everyone's Rosacea start off as mild

    Just diagnosed with mild Rosacea. I get a few of the small white filled pimples and its mostly redness that I'm worried about... I oddly happened after I got candida on my groin region.... Does Rosacea always start off as mild is what I'm asking?

    Also since mine just started off as mild, does that mean it is easier to treat and reduce the symptoms??

    It depends on your definition of mild honestly. Can't say my rosacea symptoms were mild but there was a gradual worsening of my skin before it really started. There is of course some bias when we're first diagnosed since we'll usually seek medical advice early on. So it will still be 'mild' by that stage if you get what I mean.

    I don't think the initial severity of rosacea has anything to do with how easy it is to treat. But it sounds like you have phenotype 4 (Papulopustular) so it'll be the easier phenotype to manage.

    If you are suffering still with yeast or fungal infections, I can recommend Thorne Formula SF722. It was recommended to me by a dermatologist. It's excellent in getting ridding of fungal infections.

    In my experience, I'd treat mild symptoms fairly aggressively to stop them getting more severe.

    Thanks for the help and I have moderate tinnitus today and am not happy with any of this.....

    Yeah my candida is 80% gone and I was given 2 fluconazole pills (one a week) and topicals for candida. How do I know if the candida I had was just topical or in my gut too?? Did you're rosacea go away when you're candida disappear??

    Does Rosacea run in cycles? Like I've had Rosacea now for 5 weeks. Does it usually clear up and go away and stay dormant then can come back again? Am I gonna have stages where my skin goes back to normal? Is the on-set of rosacea considered a flare-up?

    I could order this... I currently have organic turmeric and curcumin and gonna put black pepper on it. Also gonna take probiotics OR should I just get the thorne formula?? .... What are the odds when my candida goes away rosacea will clear up or get much better?? Candida happened first then rosacea started maybe 1 month later.

    Thanks for the tip. I have added it to our affiliate store. There are some clinical papers linking some variants of rosacea to fungus.

    What did your dermatologist recommend as your treatment for this? It seems reasonable to believe that a mild case of rosacea is easier to treat than a moderate to severe case of rosacea. Usually rosaceans don't go to a dermatologist until is is moderate to severe so it seems reasonable that you should get control of your rosacea within one to two months which is usually how long it takes to treat rosacea conventionally depending on what treatment your physician prescribes. The gold standard treatment for rosacea usually takes one to two months to obtain satisfactory results.

    He gave me metronidole cream to apply twice a day. Online I bought a tea tree oil wash. For the candida he gave me fluconazole 2 pills taken weekly for 2 weeks and 2 topicals hydrocortisone and nystatin.. I only had rosacea redness and a few pustules for maybe 1 month before I seen him. The metro cream helps the pustules be gone within 1 day, but does nothing for the slight redness... I always had pale skin (I don't go outside much) and the rosacea is like having slight sunburn on 75% of my face. I have a beard so its not in there.... What or when should he give me something for the redness?? I go back 4/22
