On minocycline for rosacea , tried metro gel it's been 3 weeks but I am itchy now and see more bumps forming. I had a biopsy came as extreme eczema.

Trust the biopsy: If your age here is correct at 24, rosacea is not that common yet..More as people get older--though intermittent flushing may start out in teen yrs. Oral antibiotic is not commonly used for rosacea either. Anyhow, you have biopsy result now and i would go with that. I would advise re-consulting doc or get a second opinion for your trouble. There are decent treatments available. Good luck. ...Read more

Possible: No one can be right all the time and some times one needs to see how a patient responds to medication trial to reach the right diagnosis. Your gp might not have been wrong however since there is a chance that you might have had an irritant or allergic reaction to one of the ingredients in the topical cream. If oilatum helped, then the problem is dry skin but you may still have rosacea. ...Read more
