It’s self-diagnosed, but I’m pretty sure what I have is rosacea, and it started in earnest last winter (when I was 42). I have had stuff come and go in the past. It is not horrible; I can live with it at its current stage. I am also treating it with essential oils, etc., and they seem to be working to some extent.
I am reluctant to go to a dermatologist for the following reasons:
It sounds as though one is given topical and oral antibiotics and that the course of treatment is pretty long. So that’s a pain.
It sounds as though the success rate is fairly iffy, and if even it gets knocked out at first, it can come back rather easily.
The time and money for the above.
But maybe I’m wrong. Maybe you went and your rosacea was nuked and now it’s all good. If I hear some success stories, I may be motivated to try that.
Thanks for your stories and advice!
