I just started reading posts about the rebound flushing and stinging associated with Mirvaso. As it occurs well after the application, never made the association. Bad me. Unfortunately, what started out as an extremely mild case of rosacea is now a horrific mess. I am praying that over time I can get rid of the hypersensitivity that has developed. Run away from this drug - fast!!!

My dermatologist advised me to proceed slowly with this gel, adding a small amount more per day to my regular rosacea moisturizer. Even a small amount immediately cleared up my redness for almost the whole day. I have been very happy with it. For anyone having problems, try this "go slow" method that my doctor told me about.

It goes away eventually but I thought this ... Show Full Comment

I have been using Mirvaso for over a year now and wanted to submit an update of my original review. It is still a great med. I'm the one who said that I started using just a small amount and then I dilute it a little with other creams, etc. I still do this and things have been fine. I hope this review is helpful for anyone else who is thinking about Mirvaso. It really has been a blessing ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I definitely did not do my research before using this product. My dermatologist did not mention the potential severe rebound effect that this causes. I had very mild redness, but after using the product for 2 weeks and skipping use for one day, my face is completely red as if I was badly sun burned. Thankfully, since I live in Florida, I can get away with this without much more than a "looks ... Show Full Comment
