Discussions that mention tetracycline

Skin Problems board


I've had the same symptoms for a couple of years, but recently the redness and flakes flared up inbetween my eyes and along my nose. Really painful and unsightly. I then went to my GP thinking I had Seborrheic Dermatitis, but he took one look and said I have rosacea. He's put me onto tetracycline and because all my usual facewash and moisturisers burnt like hell, I got some products specially for rosacea by B Kamins, and found relief the minute I used it.
I would advise seeing the GP as it could also be psoriasis, which I already have on my elbows, scalp and legs. So it's possible to have several skin disorders at the same time:eek:
