“Neutragena Ultra Gentle Hydrating Cleanser CREAMY FORMULA- This is so mild, I can’t imagine anyone reacting to it–but do NOT use foaming cleansers because they are too harsh. I also ordered on Amazon, Science Based Lid Care Eyelid Wipes with Tree Tea Oil & Coconut Oil- They are very gentle and help with Ocular Rosacea which I have also. I tear them in half to conserve and fold the packet over a couple of times to seal. Use them on eyelids, eyebrows, and on nose and chin. Since I have been using them, the peeling roughness in nasal area has disappeared. I do rinse with cool water after using them. I use only at bedtime and do not use any creams. Keep your pillowcases, towels washed OFTEN– and use unscented detergent, for laundry, shampoo and products used on your face. Demodex mites are associated with rosacea. Tea tree oil alone is harsh and burns- NEVER use undiluted, but these are well tolerated. Google Dr. psychology today anxiety test Sandra Lora Cremers (blog)for lots of good information on eyes and face cleaning that helps with rosacea and dry eyes. Also only use eye drops WITHOUT preservatives.”

The true test will come this winter. My rosacea is at it’s worst during wintertime.”
