Cures for Rosacea

I've never posted here before. I've recently started getting red blotches and little red veins on my face, and raised papules...little bumps similiar to acne but not. I've tried many cures , but nothing works. I'm thinking of fasting eating melons, papaya and juicing for how ever long it takes to see some difference in my face. I'm wondering if there's anyone here can give me any suggestions. My face is getting to the point where not even make up can cover it. I'm pretty healthy, I'm vegetarian...I still eat dairy, thinking of going to vegan to see if it helps...Frustrating....:/

    Dear CherryC,

    Has it been diagnosed as Acne Rosacea? From what you've written it sounds like this. It is an inflammatory skin condition that can be helped with liver support and high dose antioxidants. Juicing will be a great way to cool this down and support the reduction in the inflammation and the redness that is appearing on your cheeks.

    Dairy can certainly aggravate this condition and avoiding it for a period of time is ideal.

    Let me know if you have any questions!

    Thanks! Yes, it was diagnosed. I have been using apple cider vinegar for the Rosacea and it seems to be working to a degree, but still not getting rid of the red blotches. I just got my juicer so I will try to start a detox and incorporate juicing. Thanks!

    I get red veins on my cheeks too. but i asked the dermatologist and they said it was not rosecia. and i have had it months. i think its been at least over a year. I also get dry skin. I am adding in cumcumbers to help the dryness. i figure the wateryness of cucumber will soothe my skin.

    I've had Rosacea for 20 years. My doctor accidentally sent it into remission when prescribing antibiotics for something else. Although my face can still be a little rosy at times, all the other symptoms disappeared. This lasted for several years. For some reason it flared up again. That time I asked the doctor for the 2 antibiotics and it went into remission again. That lasted several years also. Now it has flared up again. I was going to try a reboot to see what it would do before subjecting my system to antibiotics again. The two antibiotics are: Flagyl (oral, not topical), and Clindamycin. I don't remember the mg., but it would have just been typical amounts.

    I find working on gut health and liver function naturally works a treat rather then antibiotics (side-effects). Let us know how you go!
