Hi, All~~I was dx'd w/rosacea two weeks ago from a biopsy of a 'bump' on the L side of my nose. But...my Derm's PA didn't remove the sutures and didn't talk to me about the finding. I had to make another appt. to talk to my Derm's PA next week. Yesterday, I found a pus-filled papule (sp) on my R lower cheek, which I opened w/a sterilized needle and expressed the pus. I'm angry. But I'm more concerned about what products I need to be using on my face. For the past 40 years, Drs have been trying to fit me into Sjogren's Syndrome dx because of my dry eyes w/blepharitis, etc., so now my ocular issues finally make sense and my ophalmologist (sp?) has been told about the rosacea. We're doing all that can be done, so I'm confident about my eye care.
I've been reading what products are available OTC, but I don't have a good sense of what's good for me because my Dr didn't tell me what type of rosacea I have. Any suggestions? I've been using Desonide (steroid) for the bump they biopsied, but apparently that may not be a good idea? I'm just not feeling the love from my Derm's office... Thanks for any information anyone can share~~Ann
