Terrible Skin Please Help! (Pics)rosacea
Posted 22 December 2012 - 01:53 PM
Don't know if anyone can help but i have both acne and this terrible complexion.
Does anyone know what this is? Is it rosacea? I don't have any facial flushing.
In the past I've had a few glycolic peels done and I'm not sure if I can attribute this to those or not. I'm worried that they might have caused it.
Does anyone know what I can do about this, or what it could be?

Not all rosacea flushes.
I'm looking into laser treatments because frankly there is no cure. I've done the whole gamut of rosacea treatments, both prescription and holistic. What I would recommend is treat the acne first and then look into laser for the rosacea. It's much easier to treat the rosacea once the active acne is gone. Most laser treatments you can't do with active acne anyway...and acne's constant inflammation will make rosacea worse faster.

I don't get notified of your response to my post unless you QUOTE my post.
Please only quote a small portion of the post so it doesn't clutter up the thread.
HOW I STAY 100% CLEAR:
Spironolactone (anti-androgen drug)
Betaine HCL with each meal
Avoiding silicones and occlusives in skin/hair products

GreenGables - I also seem to have a bit of a red rash on my chest, is it possible for rosacea to spread there too?
I read your story on how you cleared your acne; it's very inspiring to me and gives me a bit of hope. If you don't mind my asking, how long did you suffer with acne before you got it under control?
Goodluck with your laser treatments!

You! Yes, you. The one reading this. You are beautiful, talented, amazing and simply the best at being you. Never forget that.
You don't have to be pretty. You don't owe prettiness to anyone. Not to you boyfriend/spouse/partner. Not to your coworkers, especially not to random men on the street. You don't owe it to your mother, you don't owe it to your children, you don't owe it to civilization in general. Prettiness is not a rent you pay for occupying a space marked "female."
Plea to the world: Eat less meat! Or better yet, don't eat it at all! The meat industry violates basic animal rights, it's destroying our planet, and there are so many health benefits you can gain by decreasing/eliminating meat from your diet. Don't let me tell you- do your own research so you can decide for yourself. (The dairy and egg industries are just as horrendous).
I highly recommend watching the movie Earthlings. ^
