Wow. That's an excellent tip.

Have they ever gone away? Do you use the creams from dermatologists? The doxycycline?

All I can say is that I have tried everything under the sun to sort my skin out. I had these little acne sores that were red, burn-y, and would not go away. Until I tried the diaper rash cream! I had some left over from my kids and thought, why not. My rosacea looked a little like a diaper rash LOL. I also use cetaphil and witch hazel and ditched the expensive toners and cleansers! To moisturize, I found that Clinique's redness solution cream works best.

There is a good paste called Boudreaux's Butt Paste. It is gentle and sticks in place. Both Wat-Mart and my grocery carry it.

I just turned 50. That would be wonderful!

By the way I went to this dermatologist a few weeks ago. He said he could laser my spider veins but that it would cause a bruise. Yeah? So?

He said he would give me a prescription for cream for my face and it turned out to be three. No idea what to do. I just throw them on.

I have two of those little bumps due to the rosacea. He asked, "Do you have a magnifying mirror?"

"Yes," I said.

"Get rid of it" was his answer to the rosacea pustules.

Great doc.

In retrospect I think he probably isn't very good with the laser and was discouraging me from getting the procedure. I tell you, it's really fun to not have health insurance and waste money on some of these doctors.
