      Hi, Lehn,  I had mild rosacea for years, just light flushing.  The last couple of years, since I went through menopause (in 2011), I've noticed it's been much blotchier.  I'm a little uncertain about hormone therapy, (although if the hot flashes don't go away soon I may give in) so I've had some IPL treatments and attempting to control the rosacea with over the counter topical treatments and diet.
      All the best,
      Janet
       
       
        Has anyone else noticed a correlation between a flare up and hormonal changes? Has anyone tried to address the hormonal imbalances?

      thanks so much!!! Lehn

          Hi all,

          I'm fairly new here, this is my first post.

          I do think that there is a hormonal link, at least for some.

          I've always had red flushing, but that's all. I've been on hormone replacement therapy for a couple of years now after being diagnosed with early menopause in my mid 30s (thank goodness - I was having SUCH a hard time). The rosacea has been status quo through it all, but 2 months ago my pharmacy ordered the wrong strength of progesterone and my rosacea immediately flared up. My face was covered in red itchy bumps, which I'd never had before, so I attribute that to the increased progesterone strength. The next month I went back to my usual strength, but it's taken about 2 months to get back to my usual uneven tone/ flushing.

          So that's my experience with hormones and rosacea, for what it's worth.
          This heat wave is not helping, either!
          Best,
          Jen

              OH most definitely..hormonal imbalances account for much of my rosacea. It all has to do with getting proper sleep, exercise, food, etc. Not getting sleep drives the imbalance in hormones. If you don't exercise, there's an imbalance in the insulin (which again is affected by hormone balance). Also STRESS plays a major role on the hormones. It's all intertwined together. I get one factor out of whack and the rosacea flares big time. It's really a big balancing act. Plus I don't use chemical or drug treatments any more so I have to really have my life balance in all areas. It's working so far. The flareups are rare and the postules are tiny and heal quick when I get them.

I have been keeping a daily food diary and have tried a lot of medications. At this stage, I am trying to address it through diet and other natural means. I also think it is hormonally related because I am Peri-menopausal and the worst time is a week before my period.

I notice that sometimes I have something - like a glass of wine and I can feel my face heat up but other times, it seems to come the next morning. It makes it difficult to know what is causing the reaction.

                I know this is several weeks old but I wanted to say I too am on the compounding cream for menopausal symptoms now for 2 yrs and they have not helped in the least.  Im on a daily dose of estrogen (3mg) and progesterone (200mg) and I swear my levels are at their lowest now.  Its like my body is not absorbing the cream or something.  I also had no DHEA so Im supplementing with that as well.  No change in rosacea (better or worse) but my hot flashes at night seemed to get slightly better.   I have to have my hormones checked again next week after a month of increased dosages so we will see.  My estrogen levels were ok but I had only .01 of progesterone..Doesnt make sense when Im applying the cream every day.  I guess I  need to look into  somethinig else..

                Hi, Lehn,  I had mild rosacea for years, just light flushing.  The last couple of years, since I went through menopause (in 2011), I've noticed it's been much blotchier.  I'm a little uncertain about hormone therapy, (although if the hot flashes don't go away soon I may give in) so I've had some IPL treatments and attempting to control the rosacea with over the counter topical treatments and diet.

                      Females have alot of conditions that are attributed to hormone imbalance. Saying it has nothing to do with it is incorrect, as for some , it might.

                      Someone here said the fumes stung the eyes. Did you answer that? as it's likely I missed it altho I was looking for your answer and didnt see it. If you did answer, would you say it again?

                        Well to be fair, we are female and it doesn't appear that you are.

                        Females have alot of conditions that are attributed to hormone imbalance. Saying it has nothing to do with it is incorrect, as for some , it might.

                        Someone here said the fumes stung the eyes. Did you answer that? as it's likely I missed it altho I was looking for your answer and didnt see it. If you did answer, would you say it again?

                        thanks

                        Hi arthur;   Do you make a bottle up to use or should it be made fresh each day?  If you make a bottle up to use is there a time limit you can keep it?

                              I am careful not to get the solution too near the eyes now as the fumes cause irritation.
                              I have been using it morning and night from a bottle with 2 teaspoons of alcohol and 2 of
                              vinegar. I use a small piece of cotton wool to apply it. The results are very good so far. Time
                              will tell if I am still affected by flare ups.
                              I will be telling my son about this as he also suffers from Rosasea. I will report back with
                              his progress if he uses it.

                                I make it up once and use it till its finished, then make up a new batch. I use it once a day after washing my face. I found it works on many skin ailments, rash, itch, rough spots. I apply it with my fingers but I suppose you can cut up a sponge, but apply to eyelids with a finger and have wet wash rag handy if it gets into eye although I had no trouble. I am now testing it on part of my scalp for dandruff.

                                      Dear Rosacea Group:

                                      I would advise completely against getting rubbing alcohol anywhere near your
                                      eyes. It can cause blindness. And your eyesight cannot be restored.

                                      While we often want cheap and quick fixes for this condition ‹ please ask
                                      yourself if it is worth losing your eyesight over because it could happen.

                                      I know we are all grown-ups and must each make our own health decisions and
                                      as co-moderator, I must advise that rubbing alcohol is an irritant to mucus
                                      membranes, the skin and respiratory tract. Is it worth using to damage your
                                      lungs and go blind? Just askin.

                                        Hi. I notice a correlation between hormones and rosacea flare ups every month when I get my period. usually a few days before I start I flare up then it clears up for about 2 days. and then when my period is over i always get a flare up again. I notice this pattern every month so I know it is related to hormones.

I have been keeping a daily food diary and have tried a lot of medications. At this stage, I am trying to address it through diet and other natural means. I also think it is hormonally related because I am Peri-menopausal and the worst time is a week before my period.

I notice that sometimes I have something - like a glass of wine and I can feel my face heat up but other times, it seems to come the next morning. It makes it difficult to know what is causing the reaction.

                                          Dear Rosacea Group:

                                          I would advise completely against getting rubbing alcohol anywhere near your
                                          eyes.  It can cause blindness.  And your eyesight cannot be restored.

                                          While we often want cheap and quick fixes for this condition ‹ please ask
                                          yourself if it is worth losing your eyesight over because it could happen.

                                          I know we are all grown-ups and must each make our own health decisions and
                                          as co-moderator, I must advise that rubbing alcohol is an irritant to mucus
                                          membranes, the skin and respiratory tract.  Is it worth using to damage your
                                          lungs and go blind?  Just askin.

I also use vinegar a lot for cleaning.  Fern

                                            Do you make a bottle up to use or should it be made fresh each day?  If you make a bottle up to use is there a time limit you can keep it?  Thanks  My hands are nice and soft from putting it on my thighs and back of arms for Keratosis Pelaris which it might be helping to soon to be real sure.  I put it on 3-4 X a day do you think I might be over dueing it?  Thanks, Fern
