Prosacea User Reviews

Prosacea is promoted as a homeopathic topical gel to treat Rosacea. Prosacea is said to contain medically recognized homeopathic ingredients that provides “complete and effective treatment for rosacea”.

Prosacea is conveniently available over the counter and online at Walgreens and also online at Prosacea is only briefly mentioned in the online rosacea support groups. Below is a hopefully balanced selection of user comments from rosacea sufferers who have tried Prosacea.

Prosacea Ingredients

Prosacea lists its Active Ingredients as Sulphur 1x (Rosacea/Acne Treatment Gel), and Inactive Ingredients as Acrylates, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Diazolidinyl Urea, Lactose, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Tetrasodium EDTA, Triethanolamine, Water.

Best I can tell, “Sulphur 1x” is a homeopathic measure which means 10% sulphur. So it would appear that any possible benefits seen when using Prosacea are based on the inclusion of sulphur. If you are a homeopathic expert, please feel free to leave a comment below to confirm that Sulphur 1X does indeed mean 10% Sulphur. Thanks.

I have some great news to share! I have had Rosacea since 1994 (my pregnancy brought it on) and Finally, an over the counter treatment that works!!!!! The Product is called “Prosacea” and I bought it at Walgreens for $9.99. It is a tube of “homeopathic gel”. I find it an ANSWER to prayers!!!  It’s good to be here to share the news…… Try it…… it may help a lot of discouraged sufferers!

Hi everyone!!! I’m back with my report!

I LOVE PROSACEA!! Many of the reviews said that the users saw immediate results within 1-2 days. For me, it took about 10 days to see results. However, now all of the bumps are gone and the redness has faded incredibly!

I am bummed to say that one month after starting Prosacea my skin is not looking good again. The little bumps have re-appeared, although the redness and painful under the skin bumps have not yet. I guess it’s back to square one…

Prosacea is AWESOME!!. Have been using this product since NOV 2007, once a day in the morning. I’m on my second tube. $10 dollars for fixing a disheartening problem I’ve been dealing with for over 15 years. My skin is now beautiful. My nose is no longer red, not swollen or sore, no more pustules. I look in the mirror and can’t believe how great my skin looks, with or without makeup. Others have noticed the improvement, too.

My friend also has a bad case of rosacea like mine, her skin started looking so much better, I asked her what she was doing and it was the Prosacea she picked up at a drug store. I have spent literally thousands of dollars trying to correct my rosacea and can’t believe a cheap little tube of ointment cleared it up. I am still amazed. I’ve have never posted on any forum like this, but I had such a positive experience-I just wanted to share it.

I used it sparingly only once-I couldn’t stand the smell. It reminded me of other sulphur-containing acne products I tried as a teen.

I’ve been using prosacea off and on since it first came out, with great results. i can’t use it everyday or it makes me peel. i also like to use it as a spot treatment.

Bought it on ebay. Used it only 4 days or so, burned like hell and irritated my skin more than anything. Sorry, I thought it would be good too when I seen all the positive feedback. Stronger stough than I thought. not a good choice for rosacea skin. this is me though.

Why Not Consider Rosacea-LTD

If you think you might benefit from using sulphur as a treatment, you may also wish to check out Rosacea-LTD. This consists which is a compressed `disk’ of various salts. The yellow disk contains a high percentage of sulphur.

  1. I developed rosacea back in 1992 when I was pregnant with my fourth child. I had battled the burning, pain and itching for 20 years when I started a new job at a pharmacy and my boss told me about Prosacea. Using it twice a day had me completely cleared up within a month. Now I use it every morning to stay clear. I had not realized how much my face hurt until it stopped hurting! On a side note – I use no makeup, moisturizers or cleansers on my face – just a soft cloth and warm water.

  2. Craig Erven says:

    Tried Prosacea over a year ago and had immediate positive results. Within one day my severe redness completely disappeared but I did not immediately continue using it. So I waited until the next flare up which was maybe a week later after a hot shower (that triggers it the most it seems). Applied it again and within hours the bright redness was gone again. I continue to only use Prosacea for flare ups and the frequency continued to decrease over time until lately I only need it every 2-3 months if that. I feel cured of rosacea since it’s easily been 4-5 months now since a flare up. About once a month I’ll apply Procacea followed by a moisturizer after a shower even though I don’t have redness. Breakout of pimples stopped immediately. I know everyone is having different results but this has been a miraculous cure for me.

  3. Greg Surratt says:

    I faithfully used Prosacea for more than a year, following the use directions carefully, and experienced no appreciable positive results. My best nonprescription advice – keep you skin as clean and moisturized as possible (careful not to use anything too harsh or oily), and eat healthy. Neutrogena sunscreen and moisturizing products have worked well, and I (being a guy) have found that Mary Kay for Men Daily Facial Cleanser has been reliable in preventing flareups.

    • Craig Erven says:

      Everyone is different. I’m still having the same results as before – over a year now with only minor flare ups that Prosacea immediately stops. Stand by my earlier comments. Sorry you don’t have the same results.

    Prosacea is not a good product,it actually made my face redder and dry.Prosacea also has an unpleasant smell.
