Severe Atopic Dermatitis (Redness and Pain) from Shaving - Rhofade?
I know that Rhofade is specifically for rosacea, but, could possibly be efficacious for severe facial dermatitis with significant erythema (redness)
The most current Rx for general dermatitis is called: Eucrisa
My theory (concerning my facial redness) is that beginning at age 12,
I was Dx with cystic acne.
I was placed on (2) rounds of Accutane, and used a kaleidoscope of ointments (benzyl peroxide) and many other creams,
including corticosteriods, for ----years----
I think the Accutane damaged my skin's ability to moisturize itself.
As a result, even ------lightly---- shaving my face results in profound blotches of unsightly redness (and pain)
I have tried Elidel and Protopic...and now the new Eucrisa.
I know I do not necessarily have rosacea, but in many respects, what I have is profoundly worse.
And although the conditions do clinically differ erythema is one variable both have in common
I have tried everthing. You name it...whether a Rx or OTC I have tried it
Has anyone tried Rhofade for a condition such as mine. The main symptom is redness that lasts for hours
Mirvaso was a nightmare..it caused permanent "white blotchy areas" on my skin.
I an looking forward to anyone who might be kind enough to provide feedback, especially as it relates to Rhofade resultsReport this
