Have you tried antibiotics for your rosacea? How well did it work?AussieNanaParticipantFebruary 4, 2014 at 12:05 amPost count: 9
Antibiotics didn’t work at all. Neither did anything else the doctor prescribed. The worst was a cream that peeled all the skin off my face leaving me burned. It was horrible. Interesting that modifying my diet works and that costs nothing other than the will to do it. No doctor’s fees, no cost of medications and the food isn’t more expensive either.
By the way my rosacea was really bad at one stage with nasty supperating sores for about 5 years, lesser lumps and bumps for another 15. Fine now.Norm RobillardKeymasterFebruary 4, 2014 at 1:34 amPost count: 445
That must have been terrible having your skin burned by the cream. Yes, it’s funny that diet is turning out to be the lasting solution for so many problems, yet costs nothing since you have to eat anyway.JaemeParticipantFebruary 15, 2014 at 3:23 amPost count: 348
Have had rosacea for over 10 years. Was originally treated with oral antibiotics and topical Metrogel (metronidazole 1% gel). It did work, and after finishing the round of antibiotics 10 years ago, have only been on the gel. It has kept things under control well, until the brand name patent ran out and a generic was available. The generic peeled & burned my face just like you describe.
Investigating this topic here on this forum, I am beginning to connect the dots.
My rosacea appeared after being on Prilosec (after having antibiotics). I did quit Prolosec years ago, but sounds like the damage was done. I have also shunned antibiotics for years except for an acute bronchitis infection from the flu a couple of years ago.
Now I have LPR (symptoms for the last few years, perhaps from those bronchitis antibiotics?).
The LPR diet doctor put me on is very high carb, and now my rosacea is flaring up big time. Sounds like SIBO may be the cause of all of this?
