    Good luck, Queta. Let us know your experience. I may purchase the lotion - will update if I do. I'm intrigued if there is a difference from the .1% to .125%.

    Regards,

    Hi everyone
    I really like the Pyratine XR. It is definitely helping my skin's texture and overall blotchiness. I never really had full-blown paps, just more little red dots that can be covered easily with makeup. I also have visible veins under my nose and at the end of my nose. The Pyratine works well for me. I definitely can see a difference. I had always pooh-poohed topicals before, but this one is working. I can even stand to look at myself close up in the mirror without make-up. It is also helping my wrinkles. I am 40 but had some premature wrinkling due to my face being constantly swollen. With my use of quercetin/bromelain supplements for the swelling and Pyratine for the texture and blotches, my skin looks good. I am very pleased with it. I only use a very small layer on my nose, cheeks, forehead, eyelids, and chin. It is very expensive but it is totally worth it for me. I am hoping one tube will last me 3 months. That would come to about $35 a month. Not cheap, but I can't help that. Wish I could. I guess I have to remind myself that it's cheaper than having laser work done. Obviously I'm not saying this lotion will work for everyone but I love it.

    Queta,

    It sounds like you are making significant progress with reducing many of your symptoms and I am really happy for you.

    How long have you been using the Pyratine XR? Also, how many times per day do you apply it? Does it sting at all?

    Sorry if you have already posted about these details. I am having a bad week, much to my dismay and sitting at the computer for any length of time increases the painful pressure and redness in my cheeks.

    Thanks!

    Hi
    Sorry to hear you're have a bad week. Thanks for the encouragement. I have been using it for about one and one-half weeks. I put on a very, very thin layer on my cheeks, chin, under my nose, nose, forehead, and eyelids. I also apply it to my crow's feet area. I put on a very small amount-not like a lotion but more like you might use when you apply foundation-my goal is to just cover the area. It doesn't sting when I apply it, but my skin isn't really sensitive like a lot of people's on this board. I have more the phymatous kind of rosacea-enlarged pores, swelling, etc. I flush under some conditions (like going from cold to warm, intense exercise, hot tub) but overall my case is swelling and skin texture changes. My pores, even when I was a teenager, always looked full or blocked or something and I had little red dots all over my face. I used to "steam" my face every day and put sulphur soap on it. Little did I know then how bad that was for someone with my type of problem. Oh well. I just wanted to be clear about my symptoms so you can make a decision based on your skin. If you do end up buying it and it doesn't work let me know and maybe I can buy it from you. I'd hate for you to have a bad reaction and be $100 poorer.

    Any updates on the XR? I am toying with the idea of trying it but it would cost me a bomb to get it over here. But the idea of reducing papules is very appealing to me. Metrogel helps but not enough.

    Hi -

    I just ordered and received Pyratine XR lotion. I had the original version (lotion) and used it all up months ago so I though I'd reorder and try the new one. I won't be using it every day and likely when I use it it will be at night only. I did feel the consistency and it does feel light and absorbs quickly. I notice in the ingredients the "urea" is not included as it was in the orginal version. This is good as urea can cause dermatitis in those that are prone - which I'm prone to mostly anything!

    I will let you know how I like it. I did like the previous version as well - similar but better than Kinerase ProTherapy lotion. Lessened the redness a little and provided light hydration. Didn't help with my minor acne/bumps much - we'll see on this one.

    I have ordered the XR lotion too. I am not holding out much hope but thought it worth a shot.
    I am surprised by how much some other things suggested on the board have helped so who knows....

    Will update when I have trialled it.

    Hey Valby,

    Let us know how you like it. I do think this product is a notch up from Kinerase ProTherapy and I do need something for nights I'm drier or after IPL, etc. We'll see how it works soon, I'm sure.

    Default Its Working For Me

    I was referred to Pyratine XR and have been using for about 2 months and it works for me. I cannot use after shave, cologne near my face, many sunscreens, and facial cleansers but I can use the Pyratine XR and it has smoothed my skin. It probably took me about 3 weeks to notice a decrease in redness but my skin looked different after about 2 weeks. I have done a decent amount of laser and I would say that 2 months of this product is equal to on or two laser treatments as far as seeing a difference. I actually had a friend ask to use some of the product and she said it didnt work after using it for 3 days. The information that I have looked up shows redness decreasing after a few weeks not in 3 days. This product definitely works. I am tired of the smoke and mirrors and the amount of money ive wasted on products that dont work or make claims that never happens.
