Rosacea On Chest

Frequently Asked Questions

    is it rosacea on my chest?
    Help! I have a recurrent problem with pustules on my collar bone/neck. I usually get just one or two. They are red pustules/node type rashes. They are very itchy, but also burn. It is extremely uncomfortable. I use Metrojel which sometimes helps. They last 3 - 7 days. I have been diagnosed with rosacea, but my face isn't all that 'flushed.' It's more pustule-type problems on face/neck. I went on Accutane for 3 months and everything went away for 2 years! What a miracle! However, it's back....can you get rosacea just on your chest area? Thanks so much, Peg

      Rosacea & cystic acne
      I have Rosacea, and I used to control it just by using an Alpha Hydroxy wash. The problem is that if I ever go on vacation without the wash or something, and get a flair up, I have a lot of trouble getting it down. Also, I think my rosacea may have gotten worse over time. Anyway, I had cystic acne on my cheeks that had been more or less consistent for months, as well as nasty little nose spots. Once I started using the rosacea cream, it got much better. In fact, I can notice a difference just overnight if the problem is surface irritation and not well below the surface. For instance, I have one cyst now, and it hurts, but if it ever gets to the surface, I am sure the cream will help me. I was pretty skeptical, and my friends make fun of my paying a lot for snail slime, but it seems to work well for me. Tracy Larrabee, California.

    How can I help my mum with her rosacea?
    Ever since I was little, I remember my mother's flushed red skin on her chest... It was just part of her..Now she's about to be 46 years old and is experiencing painful pimples on her face- the dermatologist said it's the rosacea on her chest starting to come up to her face...
    My mum is a very... shall we say... emotional/emotionally unstable person- she was an alcoholic for the majority of her life but has since stopped. I know alcohol may be a trigger...

    So are there any tips to help her with this? i guess there is no real cure for it, i suggested keeping a diary to pinpoint the possible causes.. What do you do for your rosacea? please help... thank you

      Im English and have suffered on and off for years until recently I moved to Spain and while at the Doctors with a different complaint he ask me about my rosacea and what treatment I've had .I told him I'd tried lots of things but nothing worked . He sent me for a blood test and I discovered I'd very high levels of uric acid in my blood .So after following an alkaline diet for a few weeks it's completely cleared up .Your mum may want to try it for a while she's nothing to lose only weight , iv lost 18 pound and feel much better.
      The alcohol problem will irritate the liver because of the excess acid that maybe why she'd it , the toxins have to go somewhere.
