hi just registered on these forums and its great to be able to go somewhere where people understand what im going through heres my story .
i was recently diagnosed by my doctor with rosacea ,the problem at first was a tiny cluster under the skin he put me on minomycin tablets (australia) 2 months ago ,i also went on eryacne cream 6 weeks ago it helped but only a little now the problem has spread and ive got the dreaded papules and although it was only on one cheek its now gone to the other one aswell.
My skin now is really oily where as before it was really dry and flaky ,and i do get the hot flush type thing happen occassionally and also did get the stinging eyes aswell for about a week but not anymore.And i did have dandruff for about a week before it got worse aswell.(basically all the classic rosacea symptoms)
Wanting to see a derm next as it appears to be getting worse every day ,the last 2 days ive woken up with little heat rashs in the affected areas but if i apply a fan to them it goes away after 10 minutes ????? weird
Ive just started rozex cream aswell but its too early to tell ,any feedback or advice is much appreciated thanks for a great forum .
Heres some pictures ,they dont show it as bad as it really is but im hoping to get some feedback from people PLEASE !!!!! is it definately rosacea ?could i have seb derm aswell ?
why after going on the meds did it get worse instead of better??
