Reviews for Rhofade

Sort by:

For Rosacea "I have been using rhodode for the past 2 months. I am very happy with the results. My redness is about 50-75% less. This means that I am not using foundation on weekends and days I don't go to work. My face has some redness but it looks healthy. In addition to the flush improvement, my face is not as dry and scale as it was before using it. Unlike a lot of reviewers here, I have not had pimples or any other reaction. My derm told me rhofade is 50/50. Some love the results and some don't. I guess I go lucky."

For Rosacea "I have previously managed my mild rosacea with metronidazole cream and Finacea cream (the latter with better results). My dermatologist prescribed Rhofade as lately I've been flushing more often. I did note immediate improvement in facial flushing, and I feel a slight tightening sensation to my skin when I would normally except my face to flush (e.g. moving from cold to hot), but my face doesn't go red. However, a week after using Rhofade, I've broken out in pimples across my face, and my skin is also sore so I will have to stop using Rhofade."

For Rosacea "The first day I used rhofade it seemed to be a miracle worker, the second day I noticed little bumps appearing on my skin. The third day my cheeks became extremely itchy and I felt like my face was on fire! My face looks like it is completely sunburned. I went to the doctor with a mild case of rosacea and now my face looks 100x worse."

For Rosacea "I'm not even sure why the doctor prescribed this for me as I have very mild rosacea and very little redness. The first time I used it, my skin tone evened out and looked great. A few weeks after, I used it again before going out and I got a spot. I used it the next night and had four more spots that got worse before better. It took three days before the spots went away. I usually only get spots when I'm in the sun and wasn't in the sun, so is it a coincidence that I got spots after using the product? $75 down the drain."

For Rosacea "I’ve had mild rosacea for years and was thrilled to read an article espousing Rhofade. My dermatologist prescribed it without warning of possible side effects. After two days, my face is dark red everywhere this cream touched my face. Bumps and burning. Beware of this product."

For Rosacea "Insurance covered the drug which was great. Started using Rhofade 6 months ago. Had 2 days of amazing results. Noticed the results actually worsened after 3-4 days. Some days Rhofade will work fine. After the 8-10 hour mark of use, my cheeks turn Dark red and begin to burn. The Whole room becomes hot. I used this drug for a long period of time because I was hoping results would start to show. Anything alcohol related will trigger the rosacea into a very uncomfortable stage. I noticed during supper time after eating a meal, it would outbreak into a deep red stage. Rhofade was a disappointment to say the least."

For Rosacea "This is an absolutely terrible medication. It made my rosacea so, so, so, so much worse and caused acne and rosacea bumps that I've never had before after only about 5 days of use. My face feels like it is on fire now even though I have discontinued this medication. I am constantly red. Everything is so much worse than before I started this."

For Rosacea "This is a horrible product and should be recalled - I had a very minor rosacea problem with two patches of redness on my checks. I used this for one week and it worked fine - but then the second week it made my face a living hell with bumps and itching - the area infected increased to three times the size. I stopped using it and now using something different from a different doctor. DO NOT USE IT!!!"

For Rosacea "I used Rhofade for about 2 weeks before I started to have problems. Initially, I thought it was awesome but then I started to have a break out of red bumps that stung like crazy. I tried adding more Rhofade but it only made it worse...much worse. My face still stings even though I stopped using Rhofade. I hope I didn't do any permanent damage."

For Rosacea "I had very mild redness and was surprised when my dermatologist gave me a few rhofade samples. I only applied it once and discontinued because of weird tingling sensations all over my face. In about two days after that my face turned red and was covered with tiny pimples. I’ve never had those before. It’s been a week since and my face is slightly less red and no more pimples but overall it’s still much worse than before rhofade. I’ve never had any reaction to alcohol until then either but now a single drink makes my face red. I reported my case to FDA and will be looking for a different dermatologist. I think it’s totally irresponsible to give out samples of medication that can cause lasting damaging effects."

For Rosacea "I has suffer from mild acne since 14yrs old. At age 19 I was diagnosed with Rosacea on top of the acne. I have tried EVERYTHING out there. So far, I am 30yrs old now, Accutane and Rhofade have had the best results for me. After my 3rd course of Accutane for 5 months, which makes my face look like porcelain, I started to break out again, my dermatologies gave me 2 little samples of Rhofade and with first application my face was clear again from redness & what looks like ezcema. I have used it 2 days so far and it is wonderful. I do feel some sensation on my cheeks but it is worth it."

For Rosacea "I had a terrible experience with Rhofade. I went to a dermatologist because of mild symptoms of rosacea. I used Rhofade for 4 days, and it made symptoms 10 times worse. I looked like I had a bad sunburn and pimples. My skin was also dry and burning. I stopped using it and I bought Eucerin Sensitive Skin Redness Relief Soothing Night Cream, and Eucerin Redness Relief Cleanser from Walgreens. They are helping. Now my skin is just a little pink in some spots."

For Rosacea "Wow! It makes all the redness and little broken capillaries literally disappear! I only have mild rosácea with some flushing. I've been using it for a couple of months. I'm so impressed!!!! My skin looks better than it has in years, and I can go light on my foundation or skip it! I do feel a tingly sensation at times on my face, but it's worth the trade off for me. I'm very happy with Rhofade!"

For Rosacea "I used Rhofade a few times and it seemed to work. After about 3 days, my face became really red and flushed. I felt like I was burning up. My doctor told me to stop it."

For Rosacea "I used Rhofade for a few days and it immediately became apparent that my skin became much worse, redder and burning. I would not recommend this product at all. After discontinuing use and returning to regular hygiene routines my skin returned to normal, albeit with mild rosacea."

For Rosacea "Used on and off for about 1.5 months. I stopped once I noticed more frequent, although mild, flushing (which I used to rarely get) after the first month. It seems like a much milder and more effective version of Mirvaso, but going forward I'll probably save it for special occasions rather than using it semi-regularly."
