    just by way of clarification, when I say "fucidic acid burn cream", that is a burn cream made with fucidic acid, not a cream for 'acid burns'.

    Default Progress Photos!! (may be disturbing)

    Did you use tto only once? Is it possible that it caused some kind of chemical burn and not a die-off reaction? Do you have any photo from before using tto?

    I used TTO for about a week I think... ugh I wish I knew exactly so I could answer better but I think it was somewhere in the neighborhood of 4-7 days. I'm not sensitive to TTO as I used to use a TTO facewash for YEARS in my 20s. I didn't even use very much, just a few drops into a quite large amount of moisturizer. However in addition to putting it on as a moisturizer at night, I also dabbed tiny amounts on every time I felt a "crawling" sensation on my skin, which was often dozens of times between 10pm and whenever I fell asleep. I would fall asleep with the little pot of moisturizer+TTO in my hands. I had HUNDREDS of tiny white pustules on my face during the die-off. I counted 30 in one square centimeter but it was my entire forehead, nose, cheeks, and chin.

    I unfortunately didn't think to take a photo from before the TTO

    also I did put the TTO+ moisturizer all over my entire face including the non-rosacea areas (sides of face are completely perfect skin, like what you'd have on the inside of your arm!) and those parts stayed perfect. Only my rosacea areas 'reacted' to the cream.

    It was a die-off then. I'll try Apivita too, in case it's stronger than the tto I used until now.

    Which brand were you using Maria? I have to say I believe (on what grounds, I have no idea) that the Apivita one is very high quality. Maybe just because I've had good experiences with other products from them in the past.

    I get it for about 9 euros from here https://www.pharm16.gr/el/products/a...eiodentro-10ml (I like this pharmacy because they have everything I use in one place, here on the island the prices are unfortunately prohibitive and I've already spent so much money on my skin I just order online at this point).

    I use tto distributed by Fagron pharmaceutical company, mixed with sweet almond oil by my pharmacist. It helps, but doesn’t cause a die-off reaction. I asked the pharmacy to make the mix with Apivita’s tto and already have it in my closet, beside permethrin, lol.
