I have rosacea too. When I first started using my prescription cream, it seemed to get worse, not better.I perservered for a long time not seeing any improvement.I stopped having hot coffee in the morning, and almost overnight my skin became very clear. Even though I use the medication, I still have to avoid the triggers or my rosacea will flare up-but not as bad as before. It's still too early for you to tell if the medicine works. Just use it faithfully and avoid any of the triggers.( you'll have to find out what they are-everyone is different)Spicy foods,chocolate,tomatoes,sour cream,strawberries,vinegar,alcohol, hot drinks,weather that is too hot or too cold,stress are some of the possible triggers.Hang in there.
