Hi I am new and got Rosacea and from UK
Hiya, I have joined this site today in hope that I am not alone :/
I am in my 30s I was told by the doctors about 2 or 3 years ago that i have got rosacea and they only have me gel kind of a cream cannot remember what it was called and didn't work for me since then the doctors told me to try E45 cream which did not help at all so since then the doctor are hopeless not much help. I have stop drinking booze and cutting down on cup of tea. Now I got to the point where I am fed up and feel blugh with it and it seems no improvement. So I was wondering what you used to help with your face?
My face itch, so red on cheeks and forehead and dry skin as well. I wash my face with just water nothing else. I don't wear make up no point! I have been looking all sort website since y'day and came across this. There so many product out there and i do not know which one does work.. I guess I am just having one of the moment where i just want to smash the mirror... does anyone have a itching face or burning face ? and which moisturizer with sunscreen i should look for ?
Any tips or advise would be great !

Hi, welcome to the forum :-)
As you probably know, there is unfortunately no cure for Rosacea and everyone with Rosacea reacts to different triggers in different ways.
There is a lot of trial and error involved in trying to identify your triggers but you might find you have some in common with others.
What is your diet like? I think most ppl would agree that is a good place to start? Can you describe an average days meals/snacks/drinks?
