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

You're fine: Much advice about avoiding pharmaceuticals during pregnancy is based on the extreme concern over damage to the child and possible liability even if there's no connection. Retinoic acid products can be teratogens but this isn't. It's considered safe -- it's azelaic acid. ...Read more
