Continue with the Yaz. This is a good pill for acne-prone skin as it is not based on testosterone like some others. It will take about 3 months until it's effect is visible.
An excellent product is Rosaliac micellar gel by La Roche-Posay which is for skin prone to redness.
Metrogel is quite strong. It is normal to have an initial outbreak but if your skin does not start to improve or you feel you are having a bad reaction, speek to your doctor about changing products.
I have acne and rosacea, email me on the Acne forum. Eloise x
Rosacea is still a likely differential here. The rash of rosacea usually involves the nose and the cheeks as well as the chin and forehead. They may appear to be bumpy or papular. This is characterized by a chronic rash which may last for quite sometime. The rash may also recur and may be exacerbated by particular triggers like smoke, alcohol and spicy food. Stress is also implicated in rosacea.
I suggest you discontinue other cream and lotions as these may aggravate the condition. Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory condition and may benefit from oral antibiotics.
Thank you for your response =)
Does rosacea usually cause a thikening of the skin that flakes over? It won't stop, it will peel off and be red and raw and flake over again and again. Do you recommend I keep using metrogel or do you believe that this could be another condition. The hard spots on my face that peel , feel like they might be scarring and are formingwhat looks like a hole in my face, are these normal effects of rosacea?
I'm afraid that I'm going to look like this forever and I'm hoping that somethig will fix this, I've been wondering if cosmetic dermatology will help, anything to get me back to my good skin.
