Prosacea Medicated Rosacea Gel: Does It Really Work? Here is My Experience
Anyone with rosacea looks for facial products that promise to ease redness. After all, it's the redness, pimples, and occasional patches of dry, flaky skin that eat away at any remaining self-esteem. I found Prosacea Medicated Rosacea Gel and was immediately hopeful. Sadly, I found it just didn't work for me.
Here's What Prosacea Medicated Rosacea Gel Offers
First, the box clearly states that the medicated gel is recommended by dermatologists. That alone gave me hope. The key ingredient is sulfur 1x. Sulfur is used to treat acne and is believed to kill bacteria and cause the upper layer of skin to exfoliate naturally. If there is a link between bacteria in the skin and rosacea, it seems reasonable that Prosacea would work.
The manufacturer claims the topical gel will soothe and calm skin affected by rosacea. It's not oily at all, so your pores won't clog.
My Experience With Prosacea
I followed the directions and applied a very thin layer two or three times a day after washing with CeraVe . I started with twice a day and increased to three times a day.
I gave Prosacea two weeks and saw absolutely no difference. I kept going another week and there was still no change. After a full month, my skin was no better, so I gave up using it and moved on to the next product after giving my skin a break for a few days.
I still have this feeling that there are a few different reasons people get rosacea. I do think mites affect some. I think that for others it is a fungal infection. Then, I think there is a reaction to foods/chemicals in a person's life. I think that's why some prescription medications work so well for some and not for others. If your rosacea seems to be bacterial in nature, give Prosacea Medicated Rosacea Gel a shot.
I've tried Metrogel (anti-bacterial) and found it helped with the pimples but not with the redness. Honevo's antibacterial properties didn't work for me as much as others. I think that my rosacea is triggered by mites. I think that's why products with rosemary and lavender oils (natural insect repellents) seem to work best.
Given that and the affordability of Prosacea Medicated Rosacea Gel, I think you should try it. See if it works for you. When you've tried it, head to the Facebook page to share your experience.
