Well, I got in to see my doctor today and just as I figured he immediately dismissed rosacea. He said I would have acne which I reallly don't have. He said it could be my allergies and switched my antihistimine and I had a blood test done to check for lupus. He said I did not show any other signs for lupus but he wanted to make sure.

Then, as I am waiting for my bloodwork to get done I notice a peridocal for rosacea. I pick it up and start reading it and now I am convinced I have it more than ever. I felt like showing it to my doctor but I figure I will just try to get in to see a dermatoigist next week. Hopefully I will not need to be referred.
