I'm a 33 year guy and recently had an outbreak bumps and redness on my face. It happened in March this year. I moved back from Australia in September and everything was fine. I'm quite fair but have never suffered with flushing or skin problems in my life. The doctor suggested it could be Rosacea.
The bumps covered my cheeks and forehead mainly. The doctor put me on some Doxycyline mid June which I was on for 3 weeks but had some reactions to (blurry vision) so I switched to Metrogel.
My skin has already cleared up a lot considering i've only been having treatment for about 4 weeks. Nearlly all the bumps have gone and my skin is much more like its natural colour.
I'm sort of worried / unsure about what I will be doing in the future however with regards to my skin. Will I have to take the gel for the rest of my life? How will I be able to figure out what triggers flare ups?
I would like to reach out to anyone with experience with a similar condition? Is it a serious thing I need to be worried about or is it something I can manage for the rest of my life?!
thanks so much
