Has anyone used this with success??
I went to my new very well known derm (well published and written about on these boards) for a mole check.
He noticed my rosacea, and scraped the surface of my cheeks. He looked at the flakes under microscope, and found an overload of mites. Hmmmmm - this was a suprise to me.
He informed me that mites are normal, however to have too many mites is a cause of symptoms that mimic rosacea.
I told him about my skinactives products, and asked about how the mites would contribute to my veins. He told me to try the Permethrin 2x a day - a pea sized amount all over my face - and that many people see a huge difference in just 1-2 weeks.
I am to only use this cream, and then my non-irritating moisturizer over it for 2 weeks - then I go back into see him.
Permethrin is normally prescribed for scabies. Yuck!!!
BTW, I only have redness, flushing, and a few visible veins. NO papules or pustules - which was why the mite thing was a surprise.
