: She told me I have roseca because of my swollen pores on my nose. I always thojujght Roseca was when your face was red. she prescribed klaron and Cleocin t. No antibiotics ir accutane. Anyone use these lotions?
cleocin-t is an antibiotic silly. its a topical antibiotic. the klaron i'm not really familiar with but i'm sure if you put it in a search engine you'll find plenty of info. i have adult acne, when i was looking up some info on it i saw a lot of things listed that said "adult acne-rosacea" i think they are often confused for each other. if you are unsure or unhappy with what your doctor has told you, then you should try getting another opinion like neil said. when you go to the derm. or any doctor for that matter...you should walk out happy with what they told you, gave you...you shouldn't leave their confused, if you asked questions about it and everything...and you're still confused...they didn't do their job. she may be right and she may be wrong..if you want to try this medicine and see how it goes...do that..if you dont..then see another doctor. if you think that you have acne...the good news is...those medications she gave you are also for acne. actually i thought they used different medications on roceasea, but thats not important right now...but yeah, those medicines are for acne too...so if they work then who cares what it is that you have as long as its going away right? :)
