Rosacea – what about Mirvaso and what other skincare products do you recommend?
Thank you for reading! Since each of us are individuals, it’s hard to generalize sometimes. But………many patients describe a rebound flushing after using Mirvaso. In my opinion, it makes sense to use this more a an occasional crutch for a few days when having a flair or…..before an event, speaking engagement, reunion, etc.
Even better is to really work to identify those food triggers and avoid them, and to work to find both prescription topical medications (like the Finacea or Metrocream, for example), and then a great non irritating skincare regimen. Here’s a link to a skincare regimen for sentitive or rosacea prone skin. Also consider the Avene “anti-rougeur” kit.
Myself, many other dermatologists and doctors in general are trying to avoid prescribing oral antibiotics long term for chronic conditions like rosacea. I find we can almost always get it under good control by working with diet and good prescription creams and nonprescription skincare products. Probiotics taken daily may help as well (anecdotal though).
