I have had rosaceae for many years. Right now I am having the worst case I have ever had. For those of you who don't know what rosaceae is, it is a redness on your face. Usually I will just get some redness on my cheeks and maybe some pimples. This time it is on my nose, forehead and chin as well as my cheeks. I stay away from the triggers such as wine, spicy foods, etc. Anybody have any suggestions?

Have you seen a dermatologist for your rosaceae? There are prescription medications that can ease your suffering. Eucerin also makes some GREAT redness relief products that may help you as well. I have eczema and hyperkeratosis pilaris and have found several products out on the market that help me, but my son's eczema required a prescription medication. Zenmed.com even says they have a rosaceae treatment that works well, too. One of the other posters listed some things to watch for as well, and I thought that was great. I am expert in skin care so please feel free to ask me any questions!

I haven't seen a dermatologist but I am going to my doctor on tomorrow about it. I have been under stress lately and I have an autoimmune disorder which has been acting up lately which may be affecting it. I will check out the website zenmed.com.

Rosaliac from La Roche-Posay - Rosaliac from La Roche-Posay
I have the same problem. I was given a cream by a pharmacist, when i came back from my honeymoon last year and really had a big rosacea "attack" if i may say so. She recommended I use this skin perfecting, anti-redness moisturizer made by a french pharmaceutical company by the name of La Roche-Posay. The product is called Rosaliac. I'm not sure they have it in your country, but I think it is internationally available. This moisturizer has diminished the redness somewhat, and i also use a green tinted concealer which helps hide the red under my makeup. If it too close to the eyes though, it can be somewhat dangerous, so you might wanna go see a doctor about it.

Try looking up Rosacea on http://www.skincareteacher.com They have a section on Rosacea there and that may have some helpful information. Also, have you ruled out Lupus? It can sometimes have the same symptoms as Rosacea.

It could be a form of allergy,to certain foods,which triggers the symptoms,connsult a homeopath,for constitutional treatment.

I read some tips for rosacea prone skin, I will summarize what I've found: - Use a gentle Cleanser: Liquid facial cleansers containing sodium lauryl sulfate or disodium sulfosuccinate are said to be the best. -Use cosmetics made for sensitive skin: Such makeup consists less chemicals which is better for you skin. -Don't eat too much spicy food: Eating cooler foods is supposed to be better for the skin, as spicy food like horseradish can cause a flush. These are only a few of the tips that I learned but if you want to read more you can find it at the following website: Source: http://www.mothernature.com/Library/Bookshelf/Books/19/196.cfm

My wife used to get rosaceae pretty bad, so I got on the computer and started doing a little research after which, I went to the local rite-aid and purchased a tube of zinc oxide. She rubs a little in after she showers in the morning and has not had an outbreak for a couple of years now.

I would suggest seeing a dermatologist. Several years ago, I was told that I had rosaceae. My dermatologist was able to prescribe a cream to make it less noticeable and aggravating.

Is Rosaceae in the same family as Axemia??? Cause I know that is brought on by nerves/stress. I don't know what to suggest except maybe trying Proactiv. I have never used this myself but they say it is amazing how clear it makes your skin. Vanessa Williams is the spokes person for it but I know Jessica Simpson and many others use it and swear by it. Just a thought.

In addition to seeing a dermatologist, you might also want to consider seeing an allergist. It may be that there are allergens ( in the air, your cleansers, makeup, foods, lotions, etc.) that are contributing to it. Also have you had your hormones checked? When my aunt when through menopause her rosacea became really bad. She was told that if your hormones are even slightly off ( being on or changing birth control pills, or menopause,) it could also become worse. Good luck!
