    That's great rosabolic!
    Are you taking any other meds for your rosacea (oral or topical)?

    Adapalene is a retinoid and also called Differin.
    Aczone is not.

    I cannot tolerate Differin at all.

    Default oh

    does aczone helps with skin turnover like retinol does? or is it just for acne/inflammation?

    Default well

    Aczone's only disclosed and main ingredient as a prescription is 5% dapsone. Dapsone is a sulfone, which is supposed to reduce inflammation. So it helps inflammatory lesions but no one is sure exactly how it works.

    It can cause dryness and redness and peeling though so as usual caution is best as well as applying on a small area as a test patch.
    It seems you are not supposed to spot apply (as I am doing) but apply to the whole face. Not gonna happen for me though LOL. I will continue to spot apply unless I get an adverse reaction.

    HTH
