In brief: Rosacea

I recommend patients with rosacea try to reduce their stress! minimize alcohol intake and no smoking! daily use of a gentle cleanser and Metrogel twice a day.
If there is nodular rosacea i place the patient on Doxycycline as well. I do not use benzoyl peroxide as a routine for this.
