People often report an initial worsening when starting with Soolantra. For some the skin can somewhat more red and irritated than that. It's unclear whether this is a temporary worsening before it gets better, or incompatible skin with Soolantra. Although, if I'm correct, all people here on this forum have success with Soolantra. But on the Rosacea Group froum, there may be people to stopped because of it.
Take for example:
@Dm78 she also mentions "red circles".
And then, within 2 weeks:
You could try this:
- Reduce frequency of application. You could temporary stop, give the skin some rest before continuing again. For example, instead of applying it every day, apply in once per 3 days.
- Apply less Soolantra per application.
- Reduce concentration of ivermectin by adding a moisturizer after applying Soolantra. Or maybe even a bit before applying Soolantra.
Personally, I didn't get red circles, but my skin did got a bit redder and new small lessions appeared, although they didn't really ooze.
I would be interested in seeing a photo of a red circle and the severness of it, because I'm not sure what to visualize from it.
