Hard to say.. mine has really been active in the last couple of years, I guess now I am used to it pleased that it has reacted well to the oils I'm using - is worse after hot sweaty runs - probably a reaction to salty sweat that is unavoidable on long runs. I'm now in good habits with sunlotion too.

FRU which website did you get your magic oil from? I've suffered from this for a couple of years and would like to give this a try

Interesting stuff on here. I have recently started to suffer from rosecea for the last 3-4 months or so, but it is getting quite bad on my forehead and around the "shaving area" on my face. I've been to the GP and he's had me on 2 months worth of Erythomycin. This cleared the spots up within a week but now after 6 weeks, they are back and worse than ever. I've tried more or less cutting out alcohol, reducing caffeine, avoiding hot, spicy foods etc but I am now worried that I may also have to give up running, which would be pretty catastrophic for my feeling of well being.

Any thoughts on what I should do next? I'm thinking of being referred to a Dermatologist for some specialist help and advise. Is this a good idea?

Got something to say?
