Maybe neither: Why take the mindset that one reaches for a pill either allopathic or naturopathic for a natural condition of womankind? I would counsel starting with avoiding triggers like alcohol/heat, then progress to dietary control. There are several anti-inflammation diet books out there which can be helpful.

IPL for Rosacea: Intense pulsed light (ipl), or "photofacial", is an appropriate treatment for the redness of rosacea. A few treatments spaced approx. A month apart will be needed. A topical antibiotic like Metronidazole may be used in between sessions. Also, avoidance of triggers such as sun, heat, cold, spicy foods, and alcohol may help reduce redness. http://www.dranthonycorrado.com/procedures/non-invasive. ...Read more
