ZnO and TiO2: Sun screens that contain zinc oxide and titanium dioxide provide good protection, and since they are oxides they are less reactive, and less likely to cause skin irritation. Older zinc oxide preparations were white, while the newer micronized zinc oxide is clear.

Try minocycline: Read up on minocycline, in the tetracycline famy. Interesting that their beneficial effect on rosacea is not from the antibiotic activity but from a 2nd hand response due to the way the meds modify sebaceous gland production and decrease inflammation.

I was wondering what is the best medication for anxiety. I also have rosacea should I go back on a conceptive pill. Regards maeve brophy?

Anxiety: There is no one "best" medication for anxiety. I see that you've listed Lexapro (escitalopram) in your medications, and this can be helpful for some people's anxiety but not everyone's. If your current medication is not providing the desired relief, please work with your physician to find something that helps. Also, most find that psychotherapy is an essential component of anxiety treatment.

Here's the truth: I'm going to assume you're a parent. You can't cure rosacea but you can manage it. It should be possible to make it nearly invisible. If you pursue "natural / home" remedies because you read something on a doctor-bashing website, Junior will be disfigured during his teenaged years and can be permanently mutilated by his disease. Please comply with 21st century medicine -- it works for rosacea.

What are the best medications for eczema and/or rosacea?

Two entirely differ: These are two entirely different disease entities and I would first recommend evaluation by dermatologist to establish a definitive diagnosis. Eczema is generally treated with topical steroids and rosacea with prevention and topical antibiotics.

Can any doc tell me what's the best natural skincare line or products for rosacea?

This is serious: Please don't neglect evidence-based medicine in the treatment of rosacea. If you can find an evidence-based "holistic" practitioner in your community, he/she may be able to offer advice. But if "natural medicine" actually worked, rosacea patients in the old days wouldn't have ended up with their faces mutilated. This doesn't have to be you with today's 21st century treatments.

Which is best for rosacea- metrogel or metrolotion?

Metronidazole: There is no real difference between any of the Metronidazole topical products. In my practice, I prescribe the generic form of mitronidazole cream almost exclusively.

Can any doc tell me what's the best cleanser and moistureizer for someone who has rosacea?

Skin care routine: You need a good skin care routine to diminish sebaceous gland activity and acne disease as well as exfoliate. Too much benzoyl peroxide is not good either and may dry out the skin. Use a mild facial wash such as cetaphil followed by a non-comedogenic moisturizer such as eucerin daily facial with spf as well as a possible topical retinoid and periodic exfoliation. See md rx accutane/antibiotics.
