I've been taking Desonide to treat eczema for a few months and have recently been trying to wean off of it more recently, specifically using petroleum jelly and coconut oil (and Desonide once daily, to start). Thus far, whenever I try to... (more)

I have struggled with eczema my entire life. First, if you live in the northern latitudes, right now it is winter. Unfortunately that is going to make it harder to heal. But in the spring and summer when the sun is out and it gets warmer... (more)

I am dealing with leaky gut. Aside from a paleo diet, I'm taking many supplements to heal the gut and to help out my liver. I have rosacea (papular/pustular) as a result of my leaky gut -- what my liver can't process winds up coming out of my... (more)

Not exactly a skin condition, but my dandruff flares one week after eating several meals with tomatoes/peppers, wheat, or both. Tomatoes are out of season now, but visiting my folks in a couple of weeks virtually assures dandruff in early 2014. (more)

If you decide to have them removed, be sure your dentist uses measures to protect you. The biggest increase in mercury levels from amalgams apparently occurs during placement and then again during removal. I would try the autoimmune paleo... (more)

For the past month I've been doing VLC, possibly ketogenic( I don't know because I knock myself out of it with carbs on the 7th day.) I do feel amazing though on LC and workout 5-6 times a week, with no dips in energy. On the weekends I like to... (more)

I think that, if you are concerned about your rosacea, it doesn't seem like this is a problem. I mean, if you ate a whole cake in two days with no bad results, I'd say you will be fine. I tend to have a similar eating schedule as you with low... (more)

I recently read that mint or cinnamon in toothpaste can contribute to rosacea and periodal dermatitis. Can anyone suggest good brands / homemade recipes they have had success with that don't contain mint or cinnamon? Thanks in advance.

So, Violet9 suggested this a while back but I didn't think my persistent and untreatable "acne" on one specific part of my nose was rosacea (d'oh). After doing some more research, I am almost positive that is what it is. I'd like to avoid going to... (more)
