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)

Could anyone share some more light on this. I started Paleo because of immune-system problems and skin issue. They put on of those permeant retainer things in my mouth when I first got my braces out during my adolescent years. I specifically... (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)

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)

Have you had your D3 level checked? I've noticed that folk with high A, low D can have a similar reaction.

Agree with Happy Now. Just eliminating the grains may be enough, so do be gentle with yourself. Here's my blog post on pregnancy nutrition, in case it is helpful: http://www.sondrarose.com/optimal-pregnancy-nutrition (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.

Not sure how much there is to this, but I have been reading about Demodex mites recently and their relation to rosacea. Basically, they are microscopic arthropods that live in the hair follicles of most people (as many of 90% of people have it).... (more)

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)
