Seb Derm Rosacea
Any other causes of malar rash besides lupus & lyme? It definitely isn't rosacea or seb derm due to appearance
I have been on roaccutane for a week and have experienced a terrible rosacea flare. My face feels like it is on fire. My derm is away, can I come off?
Accutane: You have chosen to get on Accutane after consulting with your derm. We were not involved in that discussion, so we cant step in for your doctor and tell you what to do. You need to reach your dermatologist or the doctor who is covering for him or her. Your dermatologist's office can help you with that.
My left cheek gets really hot and red sometimes while my right cheek is cool and regular. My derm says its rosacea but is there anything else?
Yes: Consider seeing a neurologist. Rosacea almost always affects both cheeks and having hot on one side and cool on the other would be unusual.
I'm on accuaten 30mg I have spells of flush hotface my derm said it could be rosacea but isn't that a coincidence on Accutane? Could it be side affect
I went to a dermatologist who prescribes me Accutane for acne. I've been reading up and I think that I have rosacea, would the derm see the difference?
Acne: Yes, your dermatologist can tell the difference between Rosacea and Acne having spent years in medical school and then residency training. I would recommend getting a second opinion about taking Accutane which is a chemotherapy drug with potentially dangerous side effects especially in a young female.

Can Rosacea, Seborheic derm., milk allergy, stomach sensitivity and toe fungus or althletes feet, all be connected to yeast overgrowth in the body?
No: The so-called Candidiasis syndrome has never been supported by scientific findings. All of the above-mentioned issues are very common occurrences although unusual for one to have all of the probles at the same time. Having said that, sehorrhea is considered to be an untoward reaction to Pityrosporium orbiculare, a fungus found normally on adult skin.
See a dermatologist: This is primarily a clinical diagnosis. It has a typical pattern acting the cheeks and nose and may be aggravated by certain foods. A variety of treatment options are available and must be prescribed.
Flushing/blushing: Mild cases have an appearance like that of a blush, except that it persists. There may be abnormally dilated vessels and, persistent redness of the malar area and may involve most of the face. Nose may be enlarged, red with wide pores.See 1 more doctor answer
