First time poster. I have been suffering from Rosacea for close to 5 years now. I was diagnosed by my dermatologist 2 years ago. My rosacea is in the form of large pimples that seem to never want to come to a head. I don't get the overall redness that it seems most get. I do suffer from flushing however. Sometimes my head can feel like a blowtorch for hours, depending on the trigger. My ears will turn as red as a beet. This makes me anxious because I know a new break out is around the corner. I've tried everything to keep the flare ups down except for lifestyle changes. I like my beer but I know it makes my head glow like a lighthouse. I love spicey food but just smelling it makes me sweet. I don't really look forward to a life of bland food, air conditioned dark rooms and a sedentary lifestyle. I feel this rosacea has taken away what are suppose to be the best years of my life. I use to be a really outgoing person but now I want to avoid social occasions at all cost. Hopefuly this forum can help me move on with my life. It appears I am not alone after all.
