Taking supplements, acupuncture, Budwig diet, organic skincare... you name it! I tried different ways yet I always avoid seeing doctors as I hate applying steroid which makes your skin thinner.
This time, my rosacea has become stage 3... my face and even my neck is covered with acne-like dots.. and of course it is super duper red that everyone on the street tries to stare at me.
Help! and this time I have to go to doctor's! I have witnessed my colleague Suki recovered from Rosacea stage 3. And I therefore went to this Dr Chan today.
People living in HK know it is Typhoon 8 today and basically all clinics are closed. I tried to call and of course no one picks up. But at around 1pm I got a phone call from Dr Chan. OMG He is my saviour!
Let me share what was given as treatment.
- Tetralysal : antibiotics often used as rosacea treatment. usually take this for 6-8 weeks.
- Rozex gel: used at night; for killing bacteria
- Protopic ointment: not like steroid, it does not make your skin thin. Yet applying this ointment might make you more sensitive to sun light.
3. Curing your heart
- Most Rosacea patients like myself ...must have gone through times when they lose their confidence..when they feel upset ...Dr Chan is a good listener. Though he does not ensure a 100% recovery (which is also the fact), he definitely give you confidence!
Alright.. will keep you posted my situation. If you ever wanna know about the doctor's info, let me know.
