    Hi Ann,  sorry to hear about your diagnosis.  I was diagnosed with rosacea 1.5 years ago and also have ocular rosacea.  I have been prescribed Vidisic eye gel, but the one without preservatives, they come in small single dose phials and are much better than the gels/ointments with preservatives.  Hope this will help you,  Stefania

      Hi Ann, my cheeks are no longer flame-red but I am careful.  The slightest change in cream and cleanser , especially anything scented - even natural ones - seems to reactivate it, when I then have to apply Skinoren again. I've long had a problem with dry gritty eyes as I also had Graves disease affecting the eyes.  So I am more or less permanently on eye drops to keep them moist.

    Apart from what you put on your Rosacea, we need to think about what we put in it. I think a clean diet and avoiding anything toxic really helps and I'm also looking at Serrapeptase, sounds very interesting for many ailments.

    As far as cream goes, I used; Zhonzhou Zinc Oxide and Sulphur Sublimate Ointment and a soap that I think was called Manting Bacteria Removing Soap. You only need a very thin layer of the cream, twice a day, just on the affected area. It has a very drying effect on the skin and it might make it worse before it gets better, but I would honestly recommend it, it was the only thing that worked for me and it still hasn't come back.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Good luck x
