PCOS Lady:
This is a list i made for myself and the doctors i see… It shows the over lapping of symptoms and those specific to the medical conditions…
~ I have to add a separate list of my added symptoms with dates, etc…
~
You may have more or less from the combined symptoms listed for each illness/condition you may have…
~
This is a great “quick” reference for you!
~ It will need tweaked to your needs and printer specs… (lining the columns, etc…)

Rosacea Cause Identified!

Cause of Rosacea Identified!

Researchers Identify Cause of Rosacea
~
August 7 (HealthDay News) — A combination of two abnormal factors cause the common inflammatory skin condition rosacea, a new U.S. study says.
~
Rosacea, a chronic condition that causes facial redness, affects about 14 million Americans. Triggers — such as heat, alcohol, spicy foods and embarrassment — that can worsen the condition are well known. But this is the first study to identify the actual cause of rosacea, the researchers said.
~
The researchers concluded that overproduction of two interactive inflammatory proteins leads to excessive levels of a third protein that causes rosacea symptoms.
~
“Too much SCTE (stratum corneum tryptic enzymes) and too much cathelicidin leads to the abnormal peptides that cause the symptoms of this disease,” team leader Dr. Richard L. Gallo, professor of medicine and chief of the division of dermatology at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, said in a prepared statement.
~
“Antibiotics tend to alleviate the symptoms of rosacea in patients, because some of them work to inhibit these enzymes. Our findings may modify the therapeutic approach to treating rosacea, since bacteria aren’t the right target,” said Gallo.
~
The study results were published in the Aug. 5 online edition of the journal Nature Medicine.

Lupus: Mimics PCOS, MS

Posted in LUPUS tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 11:31 pm by PCOSLady

PCOS Lady: The Revolution TV show touched on Lupus today… Toni Braxton was diagnosed with Lupus in 1988… Lupus is extremely hard to diagnose… Took four years for her…

Lupus
By Mayo Clinic staff
~
Lupus is a chronic inflammatory disease that occurs when your body’s immune system attacks your own tissues and organs. Inflammation caused by lupus can affect many different body systems — including your joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, brain, heart and lungs.
~
Lupus can be difficult to diagnose because its signs and symptoms often mimic those of other ailments. The most distinctive sign of lupus — a facial rash that resembles the wings of a butterfly unfolding across both cheeks — occurs in many but not all cases of lupus.
~
The most common signs and symptoms include:
~
~ Fatigue and fever
~ Joint pain, stiffness and swelling
~ *Butterfly-shaped rash on the face that covers the cheeks and bridge of the nose
~ Skin lesions that appear or worsen with sun exposure
~ Fingers and toes that turn white or blue when exposed to cold or during stressful periods (Raynaud’s phenomenon)
~ Shortness of breath
~ Chest pain
~ Dry eyes
~ Headaches, confusion, memory loss
~
When to see a doctor
See your doctor if you develop an unexplained rash, ongoing fever, persistent aching or fatigue.

4 Types of Rosacea (PCOS & Acne)

Posted in ROSACEA tagged , , , , , , , , , , , at 5:25 am by PCOSLady

The 4 Types of Rosacea
in “Understanding Rosacea”
~
Rosacea often begins with easy blushing and flushing of the facial skin. These symptoms may come and go at first. Eventually, redness persists around the nose, extending to the rest of the face. As rosacea progresses, additional facial symptoms such as burning, stinging, pimples, swelling, dry skin, enlarged blood vessels, and eye involvement may occur. These combinations of symptoms fall into the following four subtypes:
~
~ Subtype 1: Facial Redness (Erythematotelangietatic rosacea). Flushing and/or continuous facial redness occurs. Blood vessels are visible, especially around the nose.
~
~ Subtype 2: Bumps and pimples (Papulopustular rosacea). Pimples occur, and puslike lesions may be present, along with the facial redness. You may feel burning and stinging, and blood vessels on your face may be enlarged. This stage of rosacea is also known as acne rosacea.
~
~ Subtype 3: Enlargement of the nose (Phymatous rosacea). Your skin begins to thicken and develops an irregular texture. This thickening is most evident on the nose and can also occur on the ears, chin, cheeks, and forehead. You may have enlarged skin pores in addition to the large blood vessels.
~
~ Subtype 4: Eye irritation (Ocular rosacea). One or both eyes are affected in this subtype. They may be bloodshot, teary, itchy, dry, burning, or stinging, and you may have blurred or decreased vision. It’s common to feel as though you have a foreign body in the eye. This is a serious eye condition; you may need to see an ophthalmologist.
~
Symptoms of the first three subtypes may also be present on the neck, chest, ears, and scalp. Your health care provider can evaluate the subtype of rosacea you have. He or she will prescribe the treatment based on the subtype and additional information provided during an examination.
~
PCOS lady strongly suggests you look at the pictures at http://www.rosaceafacts.com/ site… You may have acne to severe rosacea…

Rosacea in relation to PCOS
~
http://www.hormonehelpny.com/question/hormone_060204.htm
~ Rosacea is partly testosterone-dependant so lowering and/or blocking testosterone can help. Topical metronidazole helps as well. Usually the combination works the best.
~ There is no evidence that progesterone cream helps and I do not recommend it.
~ Low testosterone does not aggravate rosacea but helps it.

~ If you think you have rosacea, it’s important to get medical care. Why? Because not only can this vascular, inflammatory condition get worse and potentially cause permanent damage to your skin, it has the ability to psychologically and emotionally impact your life. From avoiding social events to not feeling as self-confident as you once did, rosacea can affect life choices.
