Yeah so I just finished a 5 month course of accutane a month ago. I stopped my course early because one day out of nowhere my face flushed bright red, and it felt like it was on fire. I called my dermatologist and he told me it sounded like rosacea.
I said "Let me guess, there's no cure for that either?" and he said that I was right. So that's when I broke down crying.
So before rosacea, I never left my house. Because i'm so ugly and scarred up. I was already embarassed of the way I look. Now, I never leave my house, and I can honestly say I have no future now because I have rosacea. I've been crying my eyes out every single day for the past 3 weeks.
My dermatologist prescribed metrogel and oracea. I don't know why he prescribed me oracea as I have no bumps on my face at all. I don't use the metrogel because I can honestly say I can't see that helping me.
So I went to my GP and she prescribed me Lyrica. When I asked her is the rosacea might ever go away, she told me no, that I would have it forever. I've been doing nothing but sleeping non stop for 3 days.
Sorry for the long post, but what I basically want to ask, is do any of you think there is hope?
