I just mirvosa for a couple weeks. Worked great then started flushing but didn't know it was the mirvosa. I don't have Rosacea just red undertones and redness sometimes. How long does this last?! I got sent home from work bc it looked so bad. Been off it two days and face still burns. Please follow up you all and let us know if it goes away!
So I am day 3 off mirvosa. Just using cetaphill oil control foam wash and cetaphill advance hydration body Lotuon on face. Stopped using accutane today ( used it before hAs caused dryness and never flushing so 100% still think it's mirvosa but am just in case it's further slowing the healing I am stoping for the month) . Woke up with heat still in my face but it had called some. I taught a fitness class today but one where I don't get a workout as an instructor- face flushed more than normal but not plum like it has been doing on mirvosa. Also walked outside with hat and sunscreen - again face is red like a sunburn but not plum. Took a shower for first time I since stopping and my face was red like normal after inshower and put on lotion, but it's not staying red - it's going to pink. Went tonight and got Jason brand E oil. Put it on tonight and after 30 or 40 min my pink has really reduced . Will watch this close bc I don't want E to breaks out as I have very acne prone skin. Lastly been ready slot about those with Rosacea have been shown to have a lack of the amino acid lysine that helps with the skin barrier and at many adding this ( and in combination with Zinc and Vit C) are sing a great reduction in acne and redness. I only red once review with an adverse effect of more acne - others don't notice a difference and other notice a huge difference. I am trying it tonight . Let me remind you I not sure if I even have Rosacea- just red under tone and prone skin. Very acne prone. Used mirvosa for 3 weeks all over face sometimes twice a day and more than a pea size. Didn't realize that it is watch was causing horrible flushing , heat face, and blotches on my skin. Very scary but day 3 is better for sure. Will keep Yal updated . I'm super active and plan to run tomorrow and will let you know if the flushing is crazy and more than normal.
