I have permanent redness on cheeks and some area under my mouth. I have since about 8 weeks been on a topical cream Rosazol with Metronidazole 1% in the evenings, i'm also since long time taking oral Tetralysal mornings.
This topical cream, is drying my skin out, no doubt about it. A drying effect. Is it possible, that this dryness - can make my redness of cheeks worse?
When it gets too dry, I'm using a moisturising cream of 42% fat for very dry and sensitive skin..though when applying this one, the red bumpers up and gets "more" red and warm. Can't be a good sign? It has paraffin and stearyl alcohol, is this a "such" alcohol that not should be put on my rosacea?
I anyway have high doubts that this drying topical cream does me anything good, 8 weeks now and just dries the red out - no visibile disappearing. What do you think?
