    Default Who here has used Rosacea LTD III?

    I'm wondering who here has used Rosacea LTD III and what their experiences with it were?

    I ordered it primarily because of the 100-day refund guarantee. I've been using it for 30 days now and have had an incredibly mixed reaction. On immediate application, my cheeks seem to get slightly inflamed and they sting slightly, but the overall redness of my face seems to diminish. However, by the next day (before application), my face is red again. In fact, it may just be my paranoid mind playing tricks, but I believe my nose has gotten slightly more red since I started use.

    I'm wondering if I should return it. Due to delays in shipping, I'd likely have to send it back in the next two weeks to get my money back. Obviously I haven't been using it for a long time, but I'm debating between sticking it out and progressing with this treatment, or sending it back and trying a new one.

    Dylan,

    I used it and ended up returning it. I probably used it for about a month and looking back, probably didn't give it a fair shot. It improved my condition but only slightly, not enough for me to consider continuing with it. At the time, I was also researching and building my own red light therapy device that ended up being the best thing I have ever done for my rosacea treatment.

    I would go with your own experiences. If your overall condition is improving, albeit slow, it's always worth considering keeping the treatment going. That said, I know uncertainty is frustrating. Have you considered trying Red light therapy, it works great for me.

    Hi,

    I have never used Rosacea Ltd, but seeing it is a sulphur product, I thought I would relate my experiences with sulphur alone.

    I tried a 3% sulphur cream and my face became a burning inferno. I thought I would have to steer clear of sulphur products forever. Then my derm insisted I try 10%sulfacetamide/sulphur 3% and while irritating initially, I could tell there was a difference. It seemed to suck some redness out of my face during the 15 minute application. Actually 15 minutes was too long. I had to reduce this by half and work my way up. It would appear the sulfacetamide part, being an anti inflammatory was helping. I experienced a slight reduction of redness and over all inflammation. I had severe rosacea at the time, so I couldn't expect to see much of a difference visually, but I was definitely better than I was.

    I mention this, as seeing you are leaning towards an improvement, but are swinging back and forth, perhaps you might benefit from staying in the sulphur family seeing it likely agrees with your skin, but trialling the prescription combination.

    Something to consider anyway.
    Previous Numerous IPL, ZZ cream.
    Supplements: Vit K2, High Dose Vit C, BHCL, Digestive Enzymes, Ionic trace mineral drops, low dose iodine to correct deficiency.
    Skin Care: Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser, or ZZ soap.

    Treating for gut infections under specialist care. (This is helping).
    GAPS diet foods/no probiotics.

    I have used them in the past, for a couple of years and thought that they were excellent for my papules and pustules.

    If I may, here are some posts about using it, as this question gets asked a bit

    I hope you were able to keep them and use them.

    Thanks guys for the feedback. I really appreciate it.

    I ended up keeping them. They are helping only slightly, but slightly is still more than I've gotten from the few other treatments I attempted.

    I'm going to look into red light thearpy and other sulphur products. Unfortunately my dermatologist is terrible - after what had to be at least a 6-month wait, I got to see him and he said there was nothing he could do about redness and then gave me cream for acne, which is hardly a problem with me - so I haven't really gotten much help or suggestions beyond what I read on the Internet.

    I don't have papules or pustules. It appears as if I may develop them (there's a few real tiny things on my nose), but right now, it's just redness that's an issue. Rosacea LTD III seems to help only slightly with me for redness, so if it mainly helped with pustules for you, David, that would make sense.

    Default Working for me

    I've been using Rosacea Ltd IV now for about three weeks. It's working really well for me. My rosacea went into remission for a while, but then it came back worse in January of 2011. I struggled for six months to get it better. I had pretty bad papules and pustules. In early August I started with the Rosacea Ltd IV regimen. It involves using Neutrogena soap, jojoba oil, and the two disks that you get from Rosacea Ltd IV. You wash, apply jojoba oil, and rub the disk on your face three times a day. My papules and pustules are practically gone. Every now and then I get a tiny one.

    I was skeptical about this at first because of the company's emphasis on alkaline diet, which seems a bit questionable. I don't do their diet, just the disks and jojoba oil and soap. I use more jojoba oil than they suggest, because my skin was very dry.

    Default PS

    I forgot to add another important part of the regimen: Clinique's City Block Sunscreen. I love this sunscreen now. Before, I was using Cetaphil moisturizer spf 15. At first I didn't like the Clinique sunscreen because it's tinted and it looks like makeup when you squeeze it out of the tube. But I think the reason it's tinted is that it uses zinc and titanium dioxides, and if they weren't tinted a little, the sunscreen would make you look very white. It has almost no oil in it. I have learned also that you need to use more sunscreen than you think: I was probably not using enough.

    Default Don't use as directed

    I used LTD-III and got good results AFTER I stopped using their recommended wash-lotion combo. Cetaphil and Jojoba are good, but not nearly the best. The wash is a tricky one....that takes experimentation. But the moisturizer is easy: Good Skin. That's probably the best cream out there for rosacea. Wash your face with something that actually gently exfoliates (not Cetaphil, as it does nothing) and then wait a while. Put the lotion on and wait a while. Wet your face and wet the salt-rock and rub it on the affect areas. Then gently spread it out with your fingers and let it dry with no towel. If you put too much on (it stings bad) then spray a quick burst of cold water on your face with the shower-head. I live near the ocean and it feels the same as when I let the sea-water dry on my face. Both help a lot. Have fun

    Default Ltd IV treatment

    I am in my third week of treatment and the results have been amazing, red patches fading, pimples and papules gone, pores getting smaller. I had a flare yesterday on my nose hot red and swollen, two pimples very small and not as deep as before. Continued to apply and today almost normal, fastest flare ever. I did contact the firm and got an immediate response, they thought it was a cold or an allergy, it was not, I know a flare up. They seem to really care, but I cannot drink that much water. Until yesterday it was complete remission, back under control now. I suspect Demodex mites are at the bottom of my rosacea. The disk make your skin uninhabitable for these mites, I have a full beard and they ran for the hair line to set up shop where the red patches are. So I started applying the disk to my bearded area and it worked. I would recommend this product, be gentle with the washing and use a mild soap. It does sting for a minute after application until you get used to it. I will keep you posted on my progress. Definitely worth a try, they claim a 98% success rate and you will know if you are the 2% within a week. Good luck out there.
