Mike, if you think you have rosacea you shoud really see your derm as soon as possible. Putting cortizone all over your face is VERY bad for rosacea. The disease thrives on steroids and cortizone is a steroid cream.
There is a certain cream to use on your face, if you do indeed have rosacea. It is called metrocream but you need to see your derm to get it.
Rosacea is very frustrating. I was diagnosed with it 2 weeks ago.
Please, if you still are putting the cortizone on your face stop. All you are doing is making it worse. You can't see that now, but if you use it too long by the time you stop using it your face will let you know.
I hopw this helps. Please call your derm.
