I greatly reduced my use of soap, seems to be helping

I've read some stuff about not using soap in the shower. As an experiment I stopped using soap a few weeks ago, don't smell, no problems. I am a 74 y.o. white male in excellent health, dx of rosacea some years ago, nothing seemed to help. I shave with a razor, so I've always washed my face w/ soap (...

My rosacea improve significantly after seb derm

I am a 75 y.o. white male with mostly good skin who's had moderate rosacea for several years. A few weeks ago I came down with seborrheic dermatitis. My dermatologist suggested I trea it with ketoconazole 2%, which he'd previously prescribed for me. I treated it for a week. After that, my seb. derm ...

Seb Derm & ketoconazole TX reduced my rosacea sx

I am a 75 y.o. white male with mostly good skin who's had moderate rosacea for several years. For years, I used metronidazole, as prescribed by my dermatologist, on and off. It never worked (which is why I used it only occasionally). A few weeks ago my derm gave me a dx of seb derm, suggested I trea...

La Roche--Posay creams

I've recently begun experimenting with some creams (available in many drug stores) from La Roche--Posay. They were recommended by a pharmacy employee in Ireland, of all places! I've used a few, and they *seem* to be working. I say "seem" because I'm not positive--it might be that my rosace...

Proskin results?

A poster here said that applying a product called Proskin Rosacea worked for him. Has anyone had any experience with this product?

I checked and could not find any US store selling it. It's available on Ebay for around $43 from a shipper in Britain.

Hydrocortisone 1% worked nicely, derma recommendation

My dermatologist recommended that I apply hydrocortisone 1% (over the counter) along with my metronidazole 0.75% cream. It has worked very nicely to tone down my rosacea--it's not completely gone, but it's way less red. ALSO, I spend winter in Utah, and when I'm in Utah, my rosacea is not nearly as ...

Spontaneous near-remission--turmeric??

I now think that an earlier post I made re spontaneous near-remission overlooked a change in my diet. A short time (? a few weeks?) before my spontaneous near-remission (and the change is really very noticeable), I began taking turmeric capsules TID. (My earlier post mentioned ibuprofen 200 mg and o...

Re: "Spontaneous" near-remission: ibuprofen???

I know there are ? 3? kinds of rosacea. Dunno what kind I have--it just gets quite red, no oozing or pustules or etc. About a week before I noticed the improvement, I started experimenting, and applied hydrocortisone 1% to one side of my face and continued with the metronidazole 0.75% on the other s...
