Exclamation Rosacea

I'm 28 & recently diagnosed with Rosacea, after nearly 15 years of doctors visits. He put me on Metrogel lotion (twice a day) & I've been on it for about 3 months now and haven't really seen a difference. Mine isn't the external kind, my cheeks & chin are just blood red the majority of the time (you can see the tiny spidery looking blood vessels under my skin)

Has anyone else been diagnosed with this and had a different treatment, medicine that worked? If so, PLEASE tell me. Thank you.

Re: Rosacea

i'm (33 yrs old) recently diagnosed rosacea and have been using Rosasol 1% with a sunscreen in it, about 3 weeks now - have had some improvement but i believe my trigger is hormone therapy for menopause so my case is obviously a little different from your's - my redness and pustules fluctuate with the hormone treatment - i wash my face with Cetaphil, then use Witch Hazel astringent ( against recommendations ), once this is dry, i apply the Rosasol. have you tried any other products?
