    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...
  2. 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...

    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...

    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...
  5. 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,...

    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...
  13. Mini Update

    Hey folks, I'm sorry that I haven't been updating as much as I could. I've reached a point where I'm constantly frustrated and don't like talking about it much. I might just be a lost cause.

    So...

    UPDATE after session #2

    This time my specialist focused on the broken capillaries surrounding the bridge of my nose and the sides. It was the exact same machine, but the settings for this were a...

    Well, it's been over a month and I still don't see any improvements from my laser session. Tomorrow's session will be aimed at destroying the telangiectasia around my nose as well as tackling the...

    No improvements with this cream -- everything is negligible.

    Went to the specialist for a checkup to spot any irregularities caused through the laser. No blisters or rashes so that's good to know. Although I still don't see ANY improvement so I told him to...

    @realwork Sort of. It's primarily for the diffuse redness around my face. (Or are those two terms interchangeable??)

    P.S. Won't be posting pic update yet, mainly because I don't see any noticeable...

    Not certain if it's related, but my nose tingling was coming on before taking the laser and the last two days have been without symptoms.

    I think they said that they've had the most success using 1064nm with their patients which is hard to argue against tbh. Although it all comes down to how effective it is on my skin. So depending on...
  22. Laser treatment (Nd:YAG) - BRACEYOURSELF

    So a few hours ago I had my first laser treatment. I experienced the Cutera XEO Genesis trupulse Nd:YAG laser - well, that's what I think it was. You see, it's really confusing knowing exactly what...
