Acne Rosacea-Easy Cure
Easy Cure For Acne Rosacea
In the early 1980's without any prior health problems, I looked in the mirror and I was so upset when I saw my face. The area around my nose and upper cheeks was fire red, and I had tiny white dots with fluid in them, all over my face. I immediately made a appointment with a dermatologist, and he gave me a heavy antibiotic. I continued with this doctor for awhile, but the medicine and creams were not working. I was embarrassed when people would stare at me, and I became very self conscious.
I tried several other doctors and I was not getting any better. I went on a trip to California to visit a friend, and I made a appointment at The California Medical Center. I was told that I had a condition called Acne Rosacea, that was not really acne. That makes little sense to me. I was also told that the cause is unknown, treated with creams, or antibiotics. Both of these treatments did not work, and I became allergic to all the antibiotics.
When I returned home, I saw another local doctor, and he wanted a biopsy. I already had been tested for Lupus, and that was negative. The needle shot into the face only concluded that I had Acne Rosacea. I was right back to where I started. Time had passed and I noticed that the condition changed and the symptoms would come and go. I had been told that being in the sun was a cause, yet I spent a month in Jamaica and I did not have a skin problem. I was told that coffee and alcohol caused the condition. I did not drink, and I did not believe that coffee or hot liquids would cause the skin problems.
Believe me , if someone said to me that I looked pale, I would be happy because it was not red. The outbreaks after the first one, became more like red blotches running from the face to the neck. The left side was the worse side. I also noticed that before a episode I would feel heat under my skin and a sand paper feeling, yet you could not see anything. I read all the articles written about the condition, and then I just stopped going to any more doctors.
My family and I had planned a trip to drive to New York. My skin was clear almost the entire trip. The day we entered New York we had stopped at a convenient store to buy snacks. We were back on the road again, maybe a hour from my sister's house. I was eating some Doritos. When I got to my sister's house she immediately asked me what was wrong with my face. I went to look, and sure enough the condition had flared up. My sister asked me what I had been eating and I told her Doritos.
I found out that day that the processed foods contain MSG. Everyone has a amount of MSG in their system, I was giving myself massage over doses of MSG. I had been eating Chinese food, the egg rolls, processed crackers, stove top stuffing, Spanish yellow rice, salad dressings, canned soups and tomatoes. My sister has a reaction to MSG, like my father does but it does affect their skin. Flavored potato chips are real bad.
All the years, all the doctors with their "unknown cause" should have known what causes Acne Rosacea. I can say with 100 percent honesty, since I stopped eating all the foods that contain MSG, sulfates and nitrates I have been cured. I know what it made me feel life to be stared at, like I was a freak. Simple problems have simple cures.
