I have had Rosacea symptoms for sometime now and I found a wonderful resource at http://rosacearesource.wordpress.com and I am getting fantastic results with the information on Rosacea I have found at the site.  Very useful.  mgj

hi folks

I was diagnosed about 10 years ago with Rosacea and have been taking antibiotics to control it. Over the last number of years I was having to take the antibiotics for longer and with less effect. My nose gets really bad (raised red spots and spots underskin and totally rudolph red). if its not treated I get the flushing across my cheeks. I checked out this irishhealth.com site a few months ago and there were a few recommendations for purpleemu products. I must say I've tried a number of different things before and I'm quite skeptical of buying online but this cream has really worked for me, it can take a couple of weeks to notice an improvement I started using it end of september and my skin was as good as its been on an antibiotic within the month, right now it looks completely clear, fingers crossed it will continue its the first time in years my nose matches my face colour without antibiotics. I know different things work for different people but this has made such a difference to me and how I feel in 6 weeks, I wanted to share !

M, there are many versions of symptoms of rosacea that is why there are so many versions of treatments. A number of researchers agree that rosaceae is brought on by the Demodex Follicuorum mite, or Helicobacter Pylori (a type of bacteria). Other skin experts claim facial erythema (redness) due to edema (swelling) and leading to spots like acne is really rosacea (diagnosed by other names) and still other opinions say rosacea is a response to topical steroid use. There is evidence that sun exposure, harsh wind, and diet can exacerbate rosacea. There is theory that its main cause is a lack of immune response in the skin.

There has been as much success in treating various symptoms of rosacea by advanced paramedical beauty therapists as there has been by physicians. This is due to the fact that there are a lot of symptoms of rosacea and the fact that the scientific/medical world has no set rules on the origins or causes of rosacea. Basically, there is no one belief on what rosacea is and what causes it. I treat the skin and its functioning. I use an alkaline and enzyme treatment on the skin. The products I use were created by Danne Montegue King. Who believed very strongly that like MOST skin conditions (including vascular ones) that rosacea was treatable. My suggestion is to locate an advanced paramedical specialist in your area and ask about the Danne King range and what treatments/products are available. Honestly, it isn't cheap.... but well worth the investment. Chleo Entriprises 01-286-4770 would be the distributor of the paramedical range and could recommend a therapist in your area.

As for products meant for dogs - I'm not a vet but would imagine that ANY skincare designed for animals wouldn't be best suited to human skin as their skin pH I'm sure isn't the same. Never mind the standards of production is not as high for vet products I wouldn't imagine!

Further to your comment. Could Rosacea be treated with some of the pour-on treatments for dogs that kill those mites or an Ivomec type product. How are these mites picked up. I work in a vet clinic is that how I got it

skin geek,

You said rosacea is treatable but you never offered any advice to all us sufferers. What do you recommend using to treat same. I have been to 2 different dermatologist constultants over the years and neither could treat my rosacea. they gave me rosex cream and offered me laser treatment (which is v. expensive) and off they sent me. They don't care. Please advise. Thanks

Rosacea is caused by a demadex mite. It lives in your pores. Rosacea is easily treated. I wouldn't use Canesten cream on the area as you could easily become sensitised on that area. I am a skin specialist and have treated Rosacea as such. I'm sure your shampoo would have had a high alkaline rating as an Alkaline treatment is very successful in treating Rosacea. It also annoys me that so many people try to 'calm' it and treat it like it is an untreatable condition. It is TREATABLE and results are achievable!

magnolia,

I'm just curious as to what antidandruff shampoo you use. Might give it a try!

Thanks

I have had a severe outbreak of what i think is Rosacea for the past 10 months, looking back the beginning happened sometime shortly after i discovered a hair strenghtening shampoo, which did wonders for my hair. But as i have been using an antidandruff shampoo for years i'm suspecting it was keeping my symptoms at bay. From a teenager i have always had a HIGH coulour and have always used green tinted moisturiser which has always helped. About 8 weeks ago i wondered if i went back to my anti dandruff shampoo would it help, IT HAS, as has CANESTEN cream especially on my nose which was beginning to look like it was electrified. PROOF to me that ROSACEA is fungal based and anyone who suffers from THRUSH, DANDRUFF etc should certainly be aware of ROSACEA. WHy oh Why has my doctor not picked up on this many years ago
