  1. Treclin(as) 2 months update

    Well after nearly 2 months (8 weeks) on Treclin all I can say is that it proved to be useless. Not only that but my baseline redness has increased dramatically in the past month and Treclin is likely...
  2. Treclin(ax) 1 month update

    I hate being a downer with every post I do, but once again there have been no improvements with the current meds I'm taking ? specifically Treclin which I've used once every night for the past month....
  3. Honestly Skinoren had a neutral effect on my skin...

    Honestly Skinoren had a neutral effect on my skin and I liked in particular how it didn't add grease to my face. I used the cream once a day for a good 5 months without any added dryness or redness....
  4. UPDATE: 1st derm visit in 7 months

    So it's been a while since I last posted but this week I've begun using Treclin (called Treclinax here) which is a gel consisting of 10mg/g Clindamycin and 0.25mg/g Tretinoin. The Clindamycin is an...
  5. Did you end up using the Treclin gel then,...

    Did you end up using the Treclin gel then, @antwantsclear?

    I've just been prescribed* Treclin so I'd be curious to know what effect it had, if any.

    *It's more for my severe acne than rosacea...

    That's strange. I also experience my ears getting warm to the touch when flushing so it must be how it measures the heat radiating away from the skin that makes it 'colder'. I.e. flushing -> greater...

    That's my fear because they'd link a moderately higher temperature with any visible redness as evidence of an oncoming fever.
  8. Rosacea Skin Temp (Covid-19 screenings)

    Hey guys, I've got a really interesting question that concerns us all that has yet to be addressed.

    Many countries have been conducting temperature screenings for people entering spaces to ensure...

    I'd better look into probiotics more seriously then.

    I commented on this thread on 18th Nov 2018 saying that I'd stopped it entirely in March of that year. Never used it since if that's what...
  10. So I'm doing nothing wrong then. Right? ...

    So I'm doing nothing wrong then. Right?

    Anyways, I'd heard that Skinoren works to calm inflammation down so wouldn't it in theory indirectly help with rosacea? Although I say "in theory" because...
  11. I brought up the probiotic treatment with my...

    I brought up the probiotic treatment with my dermatologist and she said I could try it out even though it isn't scientifically proven to help with rosacea (her words not mine). Also that it isn't her...
  12. UPDATE – new treatment

    Okay so it's been a while and I'll keep it short because of how unimpressed I am with my regimens of the past and present. Yes, that means I'm not going to meticulously type all the active...
  13. Thanks for commenting first of all. I've brought...

    Thanks for commenting first of all. I've brought up the fact it might be a fungal problem but my current dermatologist thought otherwise. Since I don't have any real evidence I just let the idea go....
  14. I didn't initially see any results...

    I didn't initially see any results (positive/negative) so I chose to take a calculated risk and be a bit closer to the source. It was still a comfortable distance for the duration of each session of...
  15. UPDATE after 1 month

    So it's been an entire month and as expected nothing has improved the symptoms.

    I've already stopped using the Epiduo entirely because I'd get red circles (1-2cm diameter) where I applied the gel...
  16. For acne yes. I used Tetralysal for a few months...

    For acne yes. I used Tetralysal for a few months which proved ineffective. A year or so ago I asked my former dermatologist what his opinion was on the pill form of Metronidazole and he said that it...
  17. I have no idea what the numbers mean for the...

    I have no idea what the numbers mean for the Metronidazole and Abitima compound cream. The pharmacy likely mixed 0.6 parts metronidazole to 30 parts of this Abitima cream. It's just the ratio my...
  18. Update: New dermatologist + new medication -- BRACEYOURSELF

    I don't really ever post here much (my last thread is over a year old). The main reason is that I've lost nearly all hope that anything will even remotely help with my rosacea (and acne). Seriously,...
  19. Law of large numbers.

    Law of large numbers.
  20. I stopped using it entirely in March. In...

    I stopped using it entirely in March. In hindsight the only thing that it actually did was make me feel more awake in the morning, but shining any bright light into your face for 15 mins would do the...

    I don't drink alcohol at all. Although I really do wish it worsened my rosacea like most people so I could boast of the 'difficulties' at adapting to this lifestyle, but unfortunately alcohol doesn't...

    Thought so.

    Yes, I'm mainly subtype1, with minor subtype4. Twice I took Tetracycline capsules and only the first time 'worked'. They stopped a decent amount of acne production, but had zero effect...

    So basically the active agent, Metronidazole, has little to no (positive) effect on rosacea. Or am I assuming too much?

    Results are meant to show after 3 weeks and I haven't seen anything after 3 months. If you have st1+4 rosacea, then I would recommend trying other meds beforehand. Rozex is probably aimed at st2...
