I have had an inflammation on my right cheek since 2-3 years now.It is as large as 1 coin, just under the cheek bone.
It started when I took an ayurvedic mask made from lemon balm.
Sometimes, there are pimples developing on top with pus. The spot maychange place slightly down when treated by masks or other products.
It maybe rosacea, but I am not sure because it gets worse when I am nervous.
I tried washing it with chamomile herb; it helps a little bit.
During my pregnancy it completely cleared, then came back 1 month after delivery.
Thank you for your help. It is much appreciated.

Yours Rosacea Treatment Plan
A. Allopathic Treatment
If you have eyes rosacea, papule, pustule, pimples, bumps and whiteheads/ blackhead acnes on face then please get one short-term course of Doxyaycline Hyclate 100 mg OR Minocycline (Minoderm) 100 mg from your dermatologists/ doctor.
Doxyaycline Hyclate 100 mg. (Dose = 1 + 0 + 1 capsule)
Minocycline (Minoderm) 100 mg. (Dose = 0 + 0 + 1 capsule)

c) Dont lie down for 30 minutes after taking Doxyaycline Hyclate.
d) Breakfast to dinner time will be minimum 10 hours.
Doxyaycline Hyclate is low potency medicines same as Tetracycline so dont worry. By this way, you will get 100 % result to treat your internal rosacea, eyes rosacea and whiteheads/ blackhead acnes.
Direction for taking Minocycline (Minoderm) Up To Reduction of papule, pustule, pimples and bumps.
a) Take one of Minocycline capsule with full glass of water before 25 minutes of your dinner. After 25 minutes, you must eat your dinner/ two slices of bread. Remember dont take any food or cold drink 1 hour before your this capsule.
b) Dont lie down for 30 minutes after taking Minocycline capsule.
B. Homeopathic Treatment
If you are not interested in antibiotics capsules then try homeopathic medicines.
Chose one of these medicines best matches to your symptom. Potency may be 3x or 6x or 30C.
a) Silica : For pustules or pit forming acnes on face.
b) Thuja : For acnes on nose and face.
c) Hepar Sulph : For pimples having white pus.
d) Aurum Ars : For pimples on face.
e) Belladonna : For inflamed pustular acnes.
Direction for taking Homeopathic Medicine
a) Dont take any food or drink 20 minutes before and 20 minutes after of your homeopathic medicine.
b) First take only one dose (3~5 pellets) of Nux Vomica 30C under your tongue then after one day start one of the above homeopathic medicines.
c) Take 3~5 pellets of 3x or 6x under your tongue, three times daily for two weeks.
d) Take 3~5 pellets of 30C under your tough, three times daily for 5 days.
e) Dont touch your fingers to pellets.
f) Keep all homeopathic medicines away from smell and perfumes.
g) Homeopathic medicines may be used in pregnancy.
h) If you are no better after two weeks or 5 days, change medicine.
C. Avoid Milk, Milk Products, Sweets, Vitamins and Iron Supplements during taking of capsules/ homeopathic medicines otherwise yours medicine reaction will be neutralized (ineffective). When you will stop taking capsules/ homeopathic medicine then again drink and eat these products as normal.
D. Get Pure, Unrefined, Natural Coconut Oil, 25 to 50 ml enough. (It will stop redness, dryness and itching forever)
Direction for Coconut Oil
a. When your acnes and pimples are stopped then start coconut oil massage. Dry your face before applying coconut oil and lie down on bed. Get coconut oil in your two fingers and massage your nose, deep nose corners, checks, chine and forehead (Rosacea Affected Areas) thoroughly with mild pressure up to 10 minutes (Set Clock) giving upward and outward stokes. During massage increase oil quantity for easy and smooth massage. These 10 minutes is only for Rosacea Affected Area, not for remaining face. If you like to massage your remaining face with coconut oil then massage your face with small amount of coconut oil up to 5 minutes.
b. After massage immediately get a piece of Ice Cube in polythene beg (Milk Grade) and move the ice beg continuously over nose, deep nose corners, checks and forehead to cool down the temperature of rosacea affected area (Important after massage). When ice cube is melt down then get one another Ice cube in polythene beg for remaining face. Dont wet your Rosacea Affected Area and face directly by Ice Cube. This massage will be once in 24 hours at bed time in night. This massage is not recommended in day time.
c. Dont touch coconut oil to your eyes; if oil touches eyelids, eyelashes or eyes sides then clean it by clean wet cotton swab.
d. When wakeup in morning, dont wash your face with soap/ shampoo. Only wash your face by tap water. Close your eyes tightly.
e) Massage daily up to two week then, as you required for maintenance, minimum two days a week on Saturday and Sunday. It will keep your face soft, neat and clean.
f) In very hot summer days, use one Ice Cube beg before massage and one Ice Cube beg after massage on Rosacea Affected Area.
Note:- Keep it in mind that antibiotics, creams and laser therapies are the temporary cure having side effects in prolong usage. I suggest antibiotics only once for short period up to reduction of acnes then coconut oil will help you forever. I had dry spots on my checks from 1989, which was converted into Rosacea in 1992. I used different treatments for my Rosacea through expert dermatologists and Doctors. At last I had stage three rosacea and I could not face any one. Personally I took capsules first, my acnes reduced then I start coconut oil massage with ice beg therapy and fifth day of my massage I left capsules till now. My face is still soft, neat and clean (No Redness) from April 2005. May and June are the hottest months in Karachi, Pakistan having 43 oC Maximum Temperature with 70 % humidity and I had no red face during that days. (Doxyaycline is of Tetracycline family. Both are ok but in past, I used both separately and I found Doxyaycline only more effective). The capsules will prepare you for coconut oil massage otherwise coconut oil will increase yours papule, pustule, pimples and whiteheads/ blackheads acnes. The real medicine is not Doxyaycline/ Minocycline; the real medicine is Coconut oil and Ice beg therapy.
a) Minimize Sun Exposure. Use sunglasses to protect your eyes by ultraviolet radiations.
b) Keep distance to heat during cooking.
c) Stay cool in hot weather, humid days. Wash your face, hands and foots with cold water in afternoon. Reduce your body temperature. If possible put a piece of Ice in tab and take bath of normal cold water in afternoon or in evening in hot summer days only.
d) Always avoid hot water, use luke warm water in winter and cold water in summer.
e) Use mild baby soap/ shampoo once a week on face.
f) Dont use any cosmetics during this treatment. After treatment always use those cosmetic products on face, which are made for sensitive skin, check expiry date and made of a good company.
g) Cover up your face in windy/ cold days, limiting your time in cold weather.
h) Use pure coconut oil in dry winter for your face (With Ice Cube In Polythene Beg), hands and body at night. If required use that moisturizer in day time, which is made for sensitive skin.
i) Never treat your face harshly by towel.
j) Always tell to your Eyes Doctor that you were affected by Rosacea. Please treat your eyes always to an expert doctor because most of eyes drops make reaction with Rosaceian eyes.
k) Eat and drink normal diet as a normal person after stopping of capsules. Dont avoid any food, fruits, vegetables and milk products etc. If you avoid, you will become weak and your skin will be weak. These are the God gifted items, important for every one health and skin fitness. Further more consult your diet expert.
l) Always use sensitive skin shaving gel for shaving.
m) Avoid alcohol forever.
Q) My face is almost free of bumps or pimples and acnes right now?
A) It is good; now you are ready for coconut oil massage with ice beg therapy. Your face redness will be completely stopped/ Cleared become soft, neat and clean.
Q) Normal routine diet will affect rosacea?
A) I think not too much, if you avoid, you will become weak and your skin will be weak. Avoid Milk, Milk Products, Sweets, Vitamins and Iron Supplements during only taking of capsules/ homeopathic medicines. When you will stop taking capsules/ homeopathic medicines then again drink and eat these products as normal.
Q) It is possible that I just massage the coconut oil and followed all your other directions without taking capsule?
A) If you have no pimples and whiteheads/ blackhead acnes on nose and checks then you are ready for coconut oil massage with ice beg therapy. Your face redness will be completely stopped/ Cleared become soft, neat and clean. If you have pimples and whiteheads/ blackhead acnes then take antibiotics for few days to stop acnes as per direction of your doctor.
