I have recently been diagnosed as having Stage 1 Rosacea, brought about by stress. Please could you give me some information on what natural/homepathic remedies I could take. At the moment the Doctor has prescribed Rosex gel for my face, hasn't seemed to make much of a difference as yet.

I also have very cracked and red cuticles (almost looks like blood blisters) and chapped knuckles, which I think was also brought about by severe stress which I was under towards the end of last year.

My stress is very much under control, but unfortunately the rosacea and red cuticles remain.

I would appreciate and advice you could give me regarding treatment.

Hello Annie

A cure for this type of problem is not known. I previously asked a homeopath what can be done in a natural way and her answer was, if the person is unable to see a homeopath face to face then the following products in general could help a lot:


These three products taken long term will help lessen the problem. Applying Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Cream could have a further beneficial effect.

For the stress please use Rescue Remedy often daily every day and Hyperiforce Tablets from the A Vogel range. The longer you use these products the better.

Otherwise we highly recommend seeing a homeopath in your area.

Kind regards.
