Been there done that.....hubby had a roseacea outbreak twice. First time the antibiotic took care of it. I did not know about
Healing Well at the time and the antibiotic was probably NOT the best thing to add complications to his flaring. Dove soap or Cetaphil soap is what the dermatologist asked him to use on his face.
Due to on and off prednisone it returned with a vengeance. He was prescribed a topical cream which helped but did not get rid of it. Then it turned into a seborriah(?) type thing and a different cream prescribed for that.
He has great skin and was a mess. Fortunately after he got off the prednisone as the Mayo Dr told us it did go away. It took about
2 months after that.
