I had red, crusty leisions appear on my lower legs. My doctor has me using Mometarone Pur CRW 0.1% twice daily. I have been using it for two weeks now and have experienced a couple of flare ups of my rosacea. Is there a connection and could this be a side effect? My doctor thinks these spots were a reaction to long term tetracycline use.
This from http://www.medicinenet.com/rosacea/page5.htm
"Some patients experience severe rosacea flares after prolonged use of topical steroids."
Two weeks use of Mometarone (a topical steroid) is not prolonged but it could be a contributing factor.
