... said the heat can cause flare-ups. He prescribed Mirvaso but I didn't fill as it is over $300. Any suggestions? Thanks Peggy
Or you could try Finacea which has helped my rosacea. You could call your insurance company to see if it might be covered. Or call the pharmacy and see how much it would cost without insurance. You will still need a prescription for it. I always heard that that sun on the face can cause more to occur. Since I always wear a hat, I have found that severe pain causes more Rosacea to occur. In time you may wish to laser off the red veining on your face. It doesn't work on the small pimples. It was about $350 a couple years ago. Wish you the best.
I did find that because I am allergic to sulfa drugs, the trial meds given really helped me decide what to do. To start with, the dermatologist did a biopsy to be sure. It showed two conditions not just rosacea. Given a sample considered effective, and told the sulfa allergy is not an issue for skin I got redder and skin started peeling. A dermatologist ought to have samples. A doctor at his clinic will not. The price is high and I suggest you switch your insurance to drug coverage. It is worth it. Check out the assistance program. They do have income restrictions. Good luck.
