Hi everyone. I’ve been struggling since end of January having yellow liquid oozing out of my face and then crusting. I wash it off and the cycle starts all over again. They put me on two rounds of antibiotics and steroids but it keeps coming back after I taper off the steroids. Now I’m on my 10th day of low dose Doxycycline 2x a day, metronidazole topical cream 2x a day and sodium sulfacrtamide 10% sulfur 5% cleanser. I also use Cerave moisturizing cream multiple times a day and vanicream moisturizing cream as well. It never seems to end. I’ve been feeling really depressed because my face is so swollen, itchy, and red every day. I wake up with yellow crusts all over my face and they form as the day goes on. I’m so ashamed of going outside and even seeing my family.
I don’t know what else to do! Has anyone else experienced this? Is this really rosacea? Please see photos.
