    “​I would like to know why dermatologists think it isn’t that big of a deal, prescribe the same Gel for everyone but don’t carrying different rosacea creams, etc in their offices for patient to try without spending hundreds of dollars on products only to find you are allergic to them. These products are not cheap and then they only give you 50 ml for $40.00. They don’t list all the ingredients so once it is bought you find it does have fragrance in it (after listing it doesn’t), it has parabens in it (which no one ever seems to lists nor did my doctor even asks if I was allergic to).

    I’m getting pretty fed up which makes me face red (pun intended)!!!
