    I found the drops were a game-changer for me!

    I know what you mean about long-term use, any other drug I was prescribed made my flushing a whole lot worse, so am very wary of taking anything else!

    I take mine about an hour or so or later after food and always after 9pm.

    Didnít think you could take these with LDN as it cancels things out.

    I'm curious though if it helps at all for subtype 1 or if it's mostly for inflammation-based rosacea?

    I am not really into subtype's!

    If you have P & P's general redness, thread veins etc, IMO it can help clear the P & P's and diminish the look of redness.

    A word of caution though, if your skin is flushing and sensitive, this is a strong cream and can cause dryness.

    It works best diluted, in my experience. My maintenance dose once or twice a week is about 1 part ZZ to 5 - 10 parts water.

    Totally agree! I apply with wet finger to a damp face VERY sparingly!

    RedRecluse,
    Did you use the ZZ cream daily for the full three months? When did you start the maintenance dose?
    Thanks!!

    I can't remember exactly, but I probably used it daily for around 2 months, and then started using less mixed with more water.
