I am looking for any reviews/experiences with the topical Klaron (sodium sulfacetamide lotion, 10%). I did some searches, and found some mention of this drug. However, many of the posts (at least the ones I saw) were either a little dated or mentioned Klaron more in passing. In some other searches I've done online, it seems Klaron has been prescribed for acne, not necessarily rosacea. I am hoping for any additional or up to date reviews of Klaron.
It's been prescribed to me for rosacea and perioral dermatitis. I tend to get mainly red/hot flushing and swelling on my cheeks and around my eyesockets, with some bumps on my cheeks. Then just red, burned feeling skin right around my nose and under my bottom lip. I guess that's the "perioral dermatitis" aspect? I tend to have slightly oily skin. I did not tolerate metrogel well (just caused insane redness) and finacea worked ok on my cheeks (helped with sensitivity, but caused breakouts on other parts of my face). Weirdly, topical erythromycin worked OK--I was expecting disaster with this because of the alcohol in the solution, but it did not cause a flare. Did not significantly reduce redness (though was helpful with the bumps), which is why the derm is wanting to try Klaron. Yet, BP made my skin go nuts (even though the alcohol in erythromycin didn't--bizarre).
Anyways, I'm just looking for reviews or input about this drug.
