Rosacea Question
 
Hello - I was diagnosed with rosacea 6 months ago. I am 60 years old and have never had any issues with skin problems before. My doctor has prescribed "Noritate - metronidazole cream." It is very very expensive.

Has anyone used this cream? or Does anyone have another medication or cream that I can use for my rosacea?

Someone recommeded Origins products. Has anyone tried these products for rosacea?

thanks!

Hi, I've been diagnosed with Rosacea as well and the Dr. prescribed me Plexion cleanser its by prescription only. I felt it has helped control my flare up and the redness and it doensnt dry out my skin. Also try to avoid caffeines and colas and spicy foods the make roscea worst. I hope this was helpful for you... Good luck..... :wave:

Thank you for responding to my inquiry on rosacea, your information was interesting and I do appreciate you taking the time to reply. Dr. said I will have this the rest of my life ...... oh no..........

Is that your only product (Plexion cleanser) that you use for the treatment of rosacea; sounds alot less expensive than my treatment. thank you again for responding.
