    I understand your frustrations, I've been there. As for antibiotics, doxycyline never helped me either. The only antibiotics that help with my P&P were Duricef (Cefadroxil) and minocycline. And...

    That sounds like a really tough situation. My rosacea symptoms get worse with the cold weather and better with the warm weather. Extreme heat is a problem for me but 75 - 85 degree summer weather...

    Yes, flushing, that's the thing. Low dose worked well for my P&Ps but it did bring on the flushing, especially ear flushing. I took low dose, on and off, for years. And now I still have some ear...

    This happened to me. I took minocycline for more than a year, it helped a lot with the P&Ps but caused my gums to take on a blueish color. I caught it in the early stages and showed it to my doctor...

    I would stop the ZZ cream, you shouldn't breakout in just 3 days. It takes a while for the ZZ to kill the mites and then it takes a while for the skin to react to the dead mites. Generally people...

    I think your skin has made a lot of improvement since June. It looks like the Finacea is really helping. At this point I don't think the accutane would do much for you. If I were you I'd just...

    I'd go easy on the Tea Tree oil until you know how you're going to react to it, it's pretty strong stuff and can burn the skin if used too often or in too strong a concentration.
