Oracea is a prescription-only sub-microbial anti-inflammatory (see Antibiotics / Anti-Inflammatories) that may be helpful in controlling inflammation. It is a new, extended release, sub-microbial dosage of Doxycycline, a member of the tetracycline family. Since Oracea shows no anti-bacterial qualities, it may be safer for long-term use than other antibiotics

Ocular Rosacea: Dr. Eric Jones, MD

On behalf of the RS group, Artist Cloutier recently met with Dr. Eric Jones, MD, the Medical Director of the institute, to discuss some of the questions on ocular rosacea posed by our members.

Ocular Rosacea: Dr. Mark J. Mannis, MD

… kindly answered questions on ocular rosacea in an interview with Artist Cloutier. Dr. Mannis has been an ophthalmologist for many years. He has authored more than 100 publications and books on topics relating to corneal surgery and disease, and has recently published several peer-reviewed articles on ocular rosacea.

Rosacea and the Sympathetic Nervous System: Dr. Peter D. Drummond, PhD

 … has kindly answered a few questions for us on the links between rosacea and the sympathetic nervous system. Dr. Drummond’s research interests include the neural control of facial blood flow, and the role of the sympathetic nervous system in pain and inflammation.

Histamine Containing or Triggering Foods

Histamine, released from mast cells when these mast cells are stimulated by the recognition of an allergen or invading pathogen, initiates the response of vasodilation and leaking of neutrophils in the inflammatory response. Many rosaceans find that foods that are either high in histamine or that trigger the release of histamines seem to worsen their rosacea symptoms.

Foods High in Niacin

Niacin (vitamin B3), and tryptophan, which can be converted in the body to Niacin, stimulate prostaglandin production and thus cause blood vessel dilation or flushing.


Solodyn is a new version of an old antibiotic that some rosaceans have found helpful in controlling inflammation (see Antibiotics / Anti-Inflammatories). Solodyn is an extended-release, low dosage of Minocycline, a member of the tetracycline family, and is only available on prescription.
