Can minocycline and metro gel make eczema worse if they put me on it for rosacea? I think i may have both on my face.
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.
