It Works for Me - National Rosacea Society

Dandruff Shampoo

I get awful scabs on my scalp and I use dandruff shampoo when I get a flare up. It works instantly and after a few washes my scalp has recovered. Then it occurred to me that it might help my scaly skin around my nose and on my cheeks. I just rub a little on the affected areas and leave it on for a couple of minutes, and it seems to soften my skin and reduce the redness.
