I see. You are having a mild case of rosacea. It's a telangiectesai type of rosacea.

Usually it can be managed either with antibiotics pills for this skin condition or with topical creams.

Sometimes laser therapy can help a lot as well.

Ive used thousands of topical creams and ive also had 8 pulse dye laser surgerys is itpossible to be anything else but rosacea?
Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 2 months ago.

No, it doesn't look like anything else but rosacea, nothing else that I'm familiar with in my practice.

Have you tried oral doxycycline as well? Or minocycline?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
what topical cream would you reccomend?
Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 2 months ago.

Sometimes we recommend metronidazole 0.75% cream. Other times clindamycin and other times retin A, depends on what it looks like up close.

Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 2 months ago.

Those pills I mentioned are by prescription only.

Talk to your dermatologist or regular doctor about them.
