    Default Rosacea on forehead

    My derm told me rosacea on forehead
    I got any red dot point or patches (near veins mostly on corner side of the forehead and hairline.
    Je gave me mirvaso but i saw it could be bad to put mirvaso.
    Don't want worse conditions.
    Rozex do nothing.
    Mirvaso better than finacea?
    Thks for your help

    Mirvaso is brimonidine and if you use the search box here at RF there are a number of threads on this treatment, i.e., the king of Mirvaso threads, the queen of Mirvaso threads, and several threads on mirvaso rebound, i.e., this one, and many others. While a few rosaceans rave about Mirvaso you should just be aware of the possibility of rebound or an allergic reaction. As for Finacea, the biggest complaint is the cost, the second is that some rosaceans complain that it is too harsh on rosacea sensitive skin, but way more positive reports than negative reports. Do the same, type in Finacea, this one, or this one. If you cannot afford Finacea there is a generic azelaic acid gel available, which I am using which has helped my rosacea/SD/folliculitis. Yes, there are way more positive reports with Finacea than metronidazole (Rozex) or brimonidine (Mirvaso).

    Thk you I have seen several posts on mirvaso regarding rebound, side effects etc...
    I am worry to use it.
    Perhaps would be safer and better to use finacea (azelaic acid)
    I got only redness not pimples on my forehead but how azelaic acid is working on redness?
    And what kind of rosacea I got, it's demodex or vascular.
    My derm told me for my temples laser would be fine, but for the forehead he gave me first rozex but don't work on redness and now mirvaso but don't want to use mirvaso.
    If finacea is working fine why not but not mirvaso.
