Hirentherock: Great to talk! Hope you are feeling good! I think Littlemermaid might have steroid-induced rosacea from using hydrocortisone cream for Tinea on the forehead and hairline. Certainly I am spending a lot of time reading about steroid-induced dermatitis. What if a switch has now been flicked to induce an inflammation response? And inflammation response to what? But yes, steroid creams have helped people with various dermatoses.
We still use steroid eyedrops to control the chronic eye inflammation, minimal.
Regarding controlling rosacea, we are having results on infected lesions with topical antibacterials and looks like no more chalazia (normal advice would be systemic antibiotics by now, we can't use them because of reactions) and trying pranayama breathing (yeh, I know, who'd have thought. I just gave in to those funky neurologists).
Lots of love, hope it's all going well.
