new and confused

Recommended Posts

hello everyone.

Im 15.

and i've had rosacea for about a year and a half now.

for the first couple of months...i had no idea what to do.

i went to school with tomato red cheeks and dandruff like flakes on my cheeks.

then i started using moisturizer. nad got rid of the dry flakes, but the redness was still there.

then after i realised this wasn't "normal" acne, i went to see my doctor and he told me i had rosacea. he then put me on Doxycycline, twice a day. everyday...it cleared up heaps!

but now...its starting to get bad again...i dont understand it...

is it jsut cause its summer and the sun effects it?

or my body is building up a tolerance to doxycycline?

or something just totally different?

i don't know what to do..

any advice?

It might be Seborrhea not Rosacea if you have flakes on your cheeks, or it might be both.

Start exfoliating regularly (manually, not with chemicals), check out the oil cleansing method and mandelic acid.

These things have fixed my acne, my seborrhea and my redness.

wanttobefree you "cured" your problems??? by shaving, oil cleansing method...????

I wouldn't say cured, although I don't know since I haven't tried stopping with it all together so it'll probably come back if I stop this regimen.

How ever it keeps everything totally at bay, I haven't even so much as seen a flake for months, my skin color is back to normal (thanks to the oils mostly) and red marks are fading.. And for the first time in 6-7 years I can say that my skin actually looks 100% normal except for redmarks.

I'm so effing happy I found this or I probably would've spent all my teenage and adulthood in depression because of this.
