A woman wants some information about rosacea, a skin disorder typically characterised by facial redness, pimples, or thickened skin. She uses a mild cleanser twice daily and rinses with cold water, following with an oil-free moisturiser. She's tried rose hip oil but without effect, avoids alcohol, sugar and grains, and takes chlorella. What else should she be doing? To control this condition without antibiotics, take belladonna 200c, 1 pilule 4 times a day. Make sure your shampoos and face products are free of irritants - try Kiss My Face olive-herbal calendula soap, aromatherapy herbal water, shea butter and emu oil. Avoid the sun, in any season and in any intensity. Massage the face rigorously and regularly; use a calming salve if noticeably inflamed. Use little or no makeup; Boots Green cream will cover the rosy colour when necessary. Spicy foods and caffeine can also exacerbate your condition; instead, get good bacteria into your system through yoghurt and acidophilus. One woman had brilliant results after drinking Forever Living Aloe Vera and using the gel topically. Flagyl (MetroGel), oregano oil, MSM (3-5 grams a day) and topical urea cream (prescription only) were also recommended. Whatever your other tactics, remember to drink two litres of water each day.
