I was diagnosed by my dermatologist with acne roscea and have been treating it since April, it's been almost 4 months and while i've noticed my skin has slightly improved, i've also noticed that a bunch of problem spots have stayed the same. the edge of my jaw, to be specific, has a pimple that is very red and inflamed and seems to never go away. sometimes it hurts and it bothers me a lot. i also have acne scars so it makes my skin look worse, the combination of acne scar + roscea sucks lol. I was wondering if there's any tips and tricks for dealing with these bumps and the acne scars as well. Right now im using aczone gel 5% in the mornings and sodium sulfacetamide 10% and sulfur 2% at night. i use a cetaphil soap for the face and cetaphil cleanser as well. i also use a oil free mosturizer and would like to know if there's anything anyone has tried that works with acne scars and acne, but is also gentle for roscea.

    Whenever I used to go out on a bright sunny day first my face used to turn red like a tomato, then red rashes started to appear on both sides of my nose....so for me going outside was only possible when it's a cloudy day or at night only....then one day my neighbour notices me and one of their family members recommended me to apply dermalmd rosacea serum on my face and I am using it for two weeks and now I am really astonished as I can now easily roam around outside on a bright sunny day.........
