rosacea

Alas, just like Bill Clinton and W.C Fields I think I may have rosacea. I've always had really bad skin and flaky scalp- I just chalked it up to being white and pasty- but for the last year or so my face has been almost constantly red- especially the cheekbone area- like a constant sunburn. And now it's starting to be painful itching burning etc... so I'll probably have to put my fear and distrust of doctors aside and have this taken care of.

i got that for a while (about a year) a few years back; it's especially worse in the winter - i think alot of it is that our apartment is really dry, i think we should concider a humidifier and maybe you should try putting some of that lotion i got on your face... this kind of weather is no good for skin.

while a humidifier is a good idea, I'm pretty sure this goes way beyong simple dry skin...any ammount of lotions or folk remedies (dancing, chanting, spirit quests etc..) have not worked...

maybe you should just go see a doctor and get a professional opinion ;-)

I think Bill Clinton also had chlamydia at one point. Chlamydia, rosacea- you say to-may-to, I say to-mah-to.

please use the technical term...its 'clam chowder' not 'chlamydia' we're all grown-ups here...

Rosacea is an awful condition to have and affects a large amount of people 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Luckily I have found a rosacea treatment which can overcome this problem significantly, reducing the redness and also one which has been shown to work in 80% of cases. It is called Synchrorose and is available from this brilliant rosacea treatment website.
