I am clinically diagnosed with rosacea for nearly 2 years. I tried a gel Protopic 0.03% on the irritated area: cheeks, forehead near my nose and nose. I use it every evening after shower. The redness and itchy acnes are gone. But then when I stop using it for about 5-7 days, the acnes and bumps come back. I initially use Protopic to combat the itchness. It works for me anyway. I don't know why, for I thought Protopic only works for those have eczema. Even my dermatologist has no idea about this. Can someone help???
