IS BYE-LORI FOR ROSACEA TOO?
Q Dear Dr. V,
Can I mix mastic in a cream to apply to my face for rosacea? A reply would be appreciated.
A Dear SK,
I have received reports from individuals who have stated that their rosacea was improved after taking Bye-Lori (which contains mastic). These people were taking an oral form of mastic, not applying it as a facial lotion. There are studies indicating that the bacterium H. pylori may be associated with rosacea, and mastic is effective in combating this bacterium. Perhaps a trial of Bye-Lori might prove helpful.
