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 10 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 10 months ago.
what topical cream would you reccomend?
Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 10 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 10 months ago.

Those pills I mentioned are by prescription only.

Talk to your dermatologist or regular doctor about them.
