Hi Miriam. I've had it for several years. I also use "Metro," but I use the lotion instead of the gel. My derm doc said that the lotion was a little less drying than the gel. I also only use it when my rosacea is pretty bad.
My skin has actually been a lot better this year, and I attribute it to the night cream I use. It's called Ultra Calming Night Cream by Aveeno, and it is specifically made for rosacea. You can get it at Walmart or any drugstore. I absolutely love this stuff. It feels really good going on, and it seems to calm my skin down quite a bit. The only drawback is that it has a pretty strong smell (not bad, just strong).
I wash my face twice a day with Neutrogena Extra Gentle Cleanser, and the daily moisturizer I use is Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion.
My sister has it too (it runs in families), and it started affecting her eyes, so she had to take an oral antibiotic, but so far, it is just affecting my skin.
I'd also like to know if anyone else has it and what they do for it.
