I suffered with acne rosacea for many years and have been treated for it for about 10 years with limited success. I found Metro Gel and Metro Lotion drying and my red face still suffered breakouts.

Nothing in life is easy and sometimes, its worth the mild to moderate s ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
it has stopped the progress of the Rosacea. I do find it does burn still after 3 yrs of use if I use too much. I usually put cream right on top so the burning goes away quick. I do find that I get very dry skin on either side of my nose which is a bit annoying but tolerable since the med works.
