Doctors' Answers to "Frequently Asked Questions" - Rosacea

These comments are made for the purpose of discussion and should NOT be used as recommendations for or against therapies or other treatments. An individual patient is always advised to consult their own physician.

Question: What are the adverse side effects to topical sulfur medication treatments (i.e. something for rosacea)

Answer: Some sun sensitivity(but rosacea also has this-so hard to tell) and allergic reactions if you are allergic to sulfa. An alternative is metroniadiazole topical gel.

Question: My husband developed Rosacea after taking Norvasc. Side effects were bloating, personality changes, and I did NOT like him on this medicine at all. He is now NOT taking it anymore and is now stuck with the rosacea for the rest of his life which I was not happy with.

Answer: I'd be surprised if the Rosacea was due to the Norvasc. However, we don't know what the cause is-except that it's a fairly common problem.

OTC Remadies
Question: Is there any available legitimate over the counter treatment for rosacea?

Answer: No. We don't even have great prescription medications;but, topical flagyl cream is used.
