See a doctor: Rosacea is a very common disorder and affects as many as 1 out of 3 people. It can also be very hard to control with over the counter products alone. Many physicians will recommend a combination of a low dose oral antibiotic along with a topical anti-fungal and perhaps a steroid to address both chronic as well as acute symptoms. Best to see a doctor and have them individualize a program. ...Read more

Is cetaphil facial cleanser could cause serious damage to the body if used frequently for a long time?
No, it's fine to use: Cetaphil facial cleanser or skin cleanser are milder than soaps. The Cetaphil cleansers don't take away too much skin oil, so the cleansers don't leave your skin too dry.
