    Default is cerave am/pm &face wash 'healing' my skin?

    After 2 years of many many topical lotions prescriptions..some steroids

    My new dermatoloist has me using cerave and my skin is almost healing.

    Is this a good sign?.. maybe the rosacea was caused by too many of the wrong scripts?

    Cerave is GREAT.

    I remember my face was super red and pealing all over the place. I used cerave for 3 days and viola! turned from tomato to pink (no itching). I became complacent after that partially because i started to get a runny nose whenever i placed it on my face. 5 years later... i just bought it again. There is an amazing improvement once you put it on overnight. Cerave just provides moisture in a "time-release" fashion, it puts your face in a position to COOL down which means less inflammation/irritability. As for healing... not sure about that, at least not technically. I think if your rosacea is steroid induced, then you could be "cured" just by using cerave, the fact that you have steriod induced rosacea is unlikely however.

    Cheers.

    Well my first dr said it was eczema and 2nd said rosacea.

    Used steroids topical for 1year.

    Any one else see results from cerave?

    I use cerave hydrating cleanser and was wondering how the PM formula is on rosacea with the ingredients ceramides and hylouric acid?

    the doc also told me to use only the PM I used it once at night, the next day skin was worse so I finished it up on my body instead.......it worked for alot of people, just not me....

    I also take Claravis which is allowing me to only use the cerave and no topical lotion.

    I tried cerave once and my skin was not a fan...but it's said to rebuild your skin layers. Definite possibility that it's working. Maybe the steroid prescriptions thinned out your skin and the cerave is rebuilding it?
