    I've had it ever since I was a baby

    and it's only gotten worse since then. I still haven't seen a dermatologist for it because my parents want me to wait. It really annoys me because they think that it's nothing to worry about but it's my biggest insecurity. Also I just wish people would stop asking me about it...

    I too suffer from rosacea.

    It started as a red nose several years ago. I tried Metrogel and it worked for a while. But after a few years Metrogel was no longer effective. The condition spread to my forehead and it was very embarrassing. A 50 year old man with gross acne on his red face and head. I...

    The Natural "blush" I Do Not Want

    It was back in 2005 when I discovered I had rosacea. I was actually tested for Lupus, as my rosacea is in the butterfly style similar in Lupus patients. I had tried all sorts of things (medicines, lotions, cleansers, etc) and nothing seemed to work. I got tired of feeling like...

    I have had Rosacea since I was 19.

    I have been to a dermatologist once. I am 31 now and my Rosacea is ten times worse than before. My nose and face are always swollen, skin greasy, large pores and skin thickening of my cheeks and nose. Maybe I have turned into edema. Is that the later stage of Rosacea? I will not...
