    “Hi David,

    just finished reading this email. I am from Western Australia and developed really bad facial rosacea middle of last year and was put on Soolantra with great results after using a few other creams. I paid nothing like what you pay in the states it cost me $52 Australian dollars and was given many sample tubes by GP before I bought it.

    I wonder if people in the states can order it online from Australia.

    Kind Regards
