    Default I need advice for people who’ve had a red throbbing nose

    I’m looking for advice from people who’ve had this very specific rosacea symptom. My rosacea is a bit different from most people. My facial redness started on my nose a few years ago and now spread to the apples of my cheeks. My triggers are heat and some type of allergen that I’m not sure of. The first time I had a flare up was from a heating vent and the next few fare ups were the same exact things. Now I can have a flare up from heat or allergies and they don’t have to happen at the same time for me to have a flare up. My nose becomes bloodshot red and it feels very stuffy to breath through. I have been using metro gel 1% twice daily and i try to avoid my triggers but it’s not entirely in my control. My redness now is mildly red but it’s always there and I want to see if it’s possible to rid of redness completely? I don’t have postules or acne from rosacea so a lot of the information and treatments out there are regarding those symptoms and I’m not sure if I should try those. What worked for you? I’m really interested in hearing from people who have the red nose throbbing symptom. Also my doctor prescribed soolantra but I read that it’s for people with postules. Please let me know. I was hoping to start soolantra now because of the Coronavirus I’ll be staying in and can handle a bad reaction. Does it work for redness too?

    Edit: does this symptom and stage sound like a mite or gut problem?

    What you are describing is Phenotype 2. You may want to read up on treatment for phenotype 2. It hasn't developed into Phenotype 5 but you could learn what treatments there are for it.

    I've found Soolantra, and more recently, Zhongzhou cream helpful for type 1 rosacea (redness/flushing). Zhongzhou is better, and is best applied with a watery finger so you get a very thin layer of it on. Other medications include clonidine or moxonodine, mirtzapine, gabapentin and hydroxychloroquine.

    Most find clearance is 90 days to 120 days. You should see improvement in 30 days. Be sure apply a small dab to your inside wrist to see if you are allergic to it.

    is the zz cream you refer to from a special website or is it the one from amazon? I'm about to purchase this instead of trying soolantra.

    Yeah was going to say checked this morning and it’s just the same with my face as any morning.

    Apart from the smell of course it gives out.

    Should it slightly sting when applying
