    I have been using this product for 10 years. It iis very eff time in controlling my acne rosacea. I use it twice a day, morning and evening. My redness has greatly reduced and I am able to control the spots/breakouts. Because it can be drying and sting my doctor directed me to use this after applying my moisturizer. In the morning I apply thin layer over all of my face after my moisturizer, let it ... Show Full Comment

    Since 9/2/16 I have been using this. For 2 weeks, at night only, then tried morning and night for 2 week. Recently, I have developed more red scaly spots over nose and between nose and upper lip. My nose swelled up and breathing became labored, and face looked sunburned. I have gone back to just nightly dose, and the swelling went away, but redness and peeling continue. I actually have more flushi ... Show Full Comment

    Metro-gel was prescribed by my PCP and horrendous for me, i.e., burning profusely, stinging, redness, and nothing else worked. A dermatologist prescribed Finacea and it was miraculous. It did sting initially but I saw improvement within a week and continued at bedtime only and stinging resided. My Rosacea cleared up completely after a few months. Now I use Finacea only when I can feel a flare-up a ... Show Full Comment

    I have Acne and Rosecea. I like to call my type of Rosecea, Emotional Rosecea. My cheeks stay a little pink all the time but if I get hot, embarrassed, mad or pretty much any other emotion except happy, my face and neck get BRIGHT red. I didn't get acne or rosecea until I was probably 24 but now that I am 30 it is awful, I can't do a presentation at work without panicking because I know my ... Show Full Comment

    I have had Rosacea for over 40 years and have used Finacea to treat it for at least the last 10 years. I have had excellent results with no side effects. No other drug worked for me and I tried everything on the market that a doctor could prescribe. After the initial few weeks of treatment the initial stinging goes away. Every time I try to get off the medication the Rosacea comes right back. Afte ... Show Full Comment
