Not a cure, but this takes away my Rosacea

I've had rosacea for around ten years or so, it started when I turned about 40. My face became red and covered in pustules, my nose was painful and swollen.
Like many people I tried anything and everything, did all the research, used creams, gels, I ate certain foods left certain food groups out of my diet. None of it worked. My self-esteem disappeared and I became very very depressed.
I asked my GP to refer me to a skin specialist which he did. I'm sure this will have been mentioned before but my specialist prescribed Lymecycline capsules. At that point I didn't think they would work, but after two weeks of these antibiotics, my face was clear for the first time in four years.
I know everybody's condition is slightly different, all I know is that this has worked for me. Some people don't want to be taking antibiotics long term and I understand that. I've managed to balance my prescription so I don't have to take this medication everyday. Over the years the maximum I can get away with is about 2 weeks without until the symptoms return. I still keep an eye on any new developments for this condition. I know how bad rosacea can effect a persons mental health so if you are struggling then get a referral to see a specialist. Lymecycline is available by prescription only ( as far as I know)
Hope this helps.

Hi Cantwell,

Thank you for your post. The antibiotics sound like they are helping you but could be causing a bacterial imbalance in your gut. You may want to consider healing your Rosacea from the inside out and turn your attention to your microbiome which could be a possible root cause. Please find a link to one of our clients, Chuckling Goat where you can read all about it:
