So, when I first went to the doctor back in September, she diagnosed me with impetigo — I had the yellow crusts big time. The ointment (I forget what it was called) helped, but didn’t clear it so I went back. That’s when she suggested rosacea and sent me to a dermatologist.
Derm gave me metrogel, and it maybe helped? But didn’t clear it. So I went back to him again. That’s when he gave me rosiver. In retrospect, it steadily got worse from that point.
So, honestly, I dunno? I tried benzoyl peroxide way back when it first started in August/September and it didn’t do a thing. But now, it’s working. Maybe it was something else and turned into just acne? In any case, my face is nearly blemish free now, and I’m so SO grateful for that!
Top is last day of rosiver, bottom about 2 weeks later (today)
And here’s the side of my face, finally healing!
