Patient Comments: Rosacea - Effective Treatments

What kinds of treatments have been effective for your rosacea?

My Rosacea responds very well to a daily 250 mgs of dicloxacillin. When I have serious flare-ups I experience pustules that form on my nose which bleed quite a bit if I scrub them with soap and face cloth. A week of treatment with the anti-biotic restores my nose and blushing area to normal. Hope this info helps someone else.

I have had rosacea for about 13 years now. I am 51 years old. I treat it with a Metronidazole gel (1%), the brand name is Metrogel. It is a Prescription medicine that you apply to your rosacea when it starts to flare up. It usually takes a week or two, but it always clears it up. Tried all kinds of antibiotics before my dermatologist recommended the Metrogel and nothing else helped. If you have Rosacea you should try the Metro91nidazole gel (1%), It works well.

At 49 I have had rosacea for over 20 years and tried a wide variety of prescription medications and seen many dermatologists who in retrospect were of little help. Out of frustration I turned to the Internet for information and solutions. I have been using a treatment called Rosacea-Ltd for about three years now with very good results. I can't say I am cured of rosacea but I am able to control it with greater ease and ever increasing periods of remission. This is the only treatment I have ever used that I have felt comfortable recommending to anyone.

I use Eucerin which is not a cure but it does hide it during the day, under make-up. I think my Rosacea is caused by taking steroids.
