Rosacea & Accutane

Posted by Pat on October 01, 1999 at 12:57:12:

Dr. Stoll--I have read the info on your site about candida and rosacea, which I will look into. My dermatologist has prescribed oral Accutane and a sulfur-containing topical cream. What is your opinion about the use of Accutane for rosacea? This is different from the medications prescribed by two other dermatologists. Thank you!--Pat

Hi, Pat.

Rosacea is a close relative of acne and, as such, most of the things tht will resolve acne will also resolve rosacea.

The only big difference is that candida-related syndrome is almost always a major contributing cause of rosacea (I have yet to see a case of rosacea that did not clear up by addressing candida and its causes.) and not of acne--although is can be associated.

Spend a few hours on the link to the archives I have prepared for you below. THEN, if that makes sense to you, go to the archhives about lgs and Candida as well.

THEN, if you still have questions, write again.

Walt
