Hello evrubody i am new here and my frst thread is I gave rosacea or not.I liked to get an answer.Redness is present continuously, but in cold weather a strong wind, sun, the situation worsens.I'm not even sure of what even if the dermatologists gave me a good diagnosis.I have had 3 IPL treatments 1 laser genesis, and I saw no progress. I don't have any pimple on the face so I think that this is not rosacea,but what is.I also saw that rosacea does seem to me not at me.I give you a picture how it looks at me and would like to hear the answer given is this rosacea.This is when in the best condition

Try a second opinion with another dermatologist, who at the very least may be able to prescribe something that might work.

My doctor prescribes 500mg of tetracycaline which is very cheap and works great. Twice a day for 10 days and the rosacea fades. Stay out of the sun and cold.
