In Reply to: Red face due to dry skin posted by Mandi on December 20, 2000 at 19:46:20:

: Hi, I am 18 years old, and I have extremely dry skin. My face gets very red and it is hard to cover up with make-up. I have been told that my skin problem is like a cousin to rosacea, so dermotologists won't give me treatment that rosacea patients use. I have been using cream from Merle Norman for about a month, and I do not see any changes. Also, when my face gets wet, the redness gets worse, like after a shower. Are there any suggestions that anyone could give me on how to reduce the redness on my face and maybe a liquid make-up that will cover it up better? Please help. Thank you.

Try washing your face with cold water several times a day. You may be getting into some fibers from an older automobile or household. The worse after the shower thing is because you are opening your pores and the allergen is getting deeper in the skin which causes edema to develop and makes the skin more accessable to fungus infections. You have recently taken two or three antibiotics in succession and have lead in your water as well as either metal fillings in your mouth or metal jewelry that you wear often. I use olive oil on the skin and drink 2 to 4 ounces as an internal antifungal. My face is being affected at the moment as well. I think mainly because the nose and mouth are the "Intake Manifold" of our body. Dusting with wet clothes can drastically reduce the magic carpets on which the fungus may ride into your lungs. If you are coughing up things at 12 hour intervals then you may want to see your doctor about a fungal problem in your lungs and find the source whether it is in the office or home. Best of luck. The Skin Lady.
