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

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. ...Read more

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

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. ...Read more

Will i always have to use finacea to keep my rosacea under control? My doctor told me that I should see maximum results from using finacea after a few months. Is this drug something that i'll always have to use to control my rosacea? Can i eventually begi

Your : Your doctor was absolutely correct - you start to see changes in 2-4 months. That's when you know whether or not your topical or oral treatment for rosacea is truly having an impact on your symptoms. Rosacea is something that you will need to manage, it is a chronic skin condition. A cornerstone of my treatment involves the use of a broad spectrum sunscreen regularly in addition to the use of topicals such as finacea/azelaic acid. I like to stress that each treatment needs to be individualized. If you respond well and things improve and stabilize, sometimes I have patients use their topical less frequently, such as every other day or weekends only - on the condition that they use sunscreen regularly. Hope that helps! ...Read more

I have naturally red checks, is that called rosacea, asked my dermatologist but she didn't say anything should I mention it to my doctor for an RX?

Possibly: Rosacea can cause red cheeks, however, so can other things. Not all Rosacea needs to be treated either, especially if there's no symptoms. You can mention your concerns to your doctor, and your doctor can guide you in terms of observation or treatment. You are already on Doxycycline, which is prescribed for Rosacea sometimes. Do you know why you're on it? ...Read more

If I have rosacea or perioral dermatitis, haven't been diagnosed, my doctor has given me fucibet cream to use for 7-10 days, but then it comes back...

If I have rosacea or perioral dermatitis, haven't been diagnosed, my doctor has given me fucibet cream to use for 7-10 days, but then it comes back...

Rosacea and steroids: Steroids like those in fucibet can make rosacea significantly worse. When you apply a steroid cream to the skin, it constricts blood vessels for several hours making rosacea appear better temporarily. Over time these blood vessels dilate even more with topical steroids. Also steroids increase numbers of demodex mites in hair follicles also worsening rosacea. ...Read more
