Customer Question

I have rosacea; itching, big lumps that turn into sores; then, top layer of skin peels off. I had some photo facial treatments a couple years ago which really helped but are very expensive and I cannot afford it all of the time. Now, face is as bad as ever. Are there any treatments that are not so expensive? I have tried all of the creams and antibiotics. Allergic to doxycycline. Can you offer me advice? I feel like I have leprocy in Bible times and hate to go out in public.

Thank you for your question. My name is***** and I will do my best to provide a useful input.

Would a photograph of the affected areas be possible at your convenience?
