    This was my reply to the post about using nothing at all for Rosacea, but I thought it applies here too.

    I treat when needed with Finacea for the P&P's, and I know nothing is going to get rid of the redness....but I can deal with the other redness caused by the dry/irritated skin.

    When my skin is not flaking...it actually looks pretty good.

    When I used nothing...I had no changes what so ever to my face.

    It was just this past May 2007 that I went to the doc again to get some Finacea. And all that does is control the P&P's....and it's not an every day occurance.

    I only use the Finacea about every 2-3 days when I see my skin getting bumpy or blotchy.

    But who knows...Winter may be a whole different story.

    I found ZZ ointment great for p&p control. Might not work for everyone but has been great for me. I now use it occasionally, when the need arises.
