    Thanks for the reply. Yeah, I'm still taking the doxy as well as the oxytet, though the latter I was intending to come off as the lymecycline started to have an effect. All of which is way too much I...

    Ten years ago when I first developed rosacea I treated it with oxytetracyline. It helped with the nose flushing pretty quickly, that...

    I've been taking doxy for three months now, almost. The problem is I've been taking soolantra for five weeks now, so maybe that made the papules worse for a while, and undid the good work doxy might...

    Okay, so I think actually I've begun to see improvement in terms of papules/pustules; but nothing in terms of redness/skin sensitivity/flushing. I guess soolantra isn't really designed for that? I'm...

    Thanks for the replies. I think as I've stuck with soolantra this far, I'm just going to stick it out for the twelve weeks. I can always try zz cream again then.

    Soolantra and ZZ cream

    Hey all,

    Okay, so I've been using just soolantra once a day at night for just over a month now. As for its effect upon my skin, I'd say my forehead has been consistently worse during that time, in...

    It doesn't seem stupid at all, not to me, anyway. I've thought about it a lot, too. However, ultimately I couldn't bear the thought of what it would do to my family. Obviously I have no idea of your...

    Only for a few days. It broke me out really badly, took a few weeks to recover. Obviously the initial worsening stage is to be expected, but I wasn't quite ready to stick with it. I thought I'd just...

    Yeah, I think that's probably good advice, thanks. Less is more right now.

    As to the carbs... I can't do it, I don't think. I've given up sugar for a few weeks now, but I like my carbs too much....

    ZZ cream trial

    As expected, I gave up the soolantra. I know it's supposed to get worse, but while it was helping a bit with the breakouts, it was making me red everywhere; even where I don't have rosacea.

    The problem is, even on here you have people favouring soolantra over zz cream. Which makes it tough. Another issue is, I've looked at your pictures, and my skin isn't the same as yours. Hard to...

    I am very tempted to go back to ZZ, I won't lie. I like the feel of it better than soolantra. But the fact that soolantra is "official", and, from what I can see, has many more success stories than...

    Do you mean in a good way? As in, it will take longer to see the benefits of Soolantra? Or do you mean that the initial die off is something which happens sooner with ZZ cream?

    Soolantra Journey

    Okay, so I've decided to try and keep a little log of my soolantra treatment, just in case anyone is interested. (Though I can't promise I won't suddenly up and abandon it and switch to zz cream; I...

    Doxycycline "purge"

    I hadn't no, thanks. Unfortunately after the initial post about recovery, the poster didn't update their progress. No way of knowing if things got better or not.
