Does it bother anyone else that drugs such as axithromycin, which are really effective for papulopustular rosacea, can't be continued long-term? Same thing goes for minocycline 100 mg bid, it's very effective but can't be continued long-term. There's much talk about low dose isotretinoin, but once again, is not recommended for long term use.

So my question is this, now that they've done so much research on how inflammatory chemicals such as cathelicidins are involved in the skin of papulopustular rosacea, when is someone going to come out with an oral medication that fixes this that can be taken indefinitely?
