I have a lot of rosacea near my nose and I can’t find a cream that can help me get rid of it or reduce it. Are there any creams that can help me?

The first step would be avoidance of triggers : alcool, hot water, spices, and also sun. Since we can't totally avoid sun, putting daily a good SunScreen would be essential and repeat application avery two hours if needed. There are lots of cream available to reduces rosacea: most products requires a physician's prescription, but before having an appointment, some products as Rosaliac by "Roche Posay (containing Ambophenol), anti-redness by Avene ou Roseane by Uriage can alleviate the symptoms. There are also green creams that can reduce appearance of the lesions. I hope it can help you. For more information, consult your pharmacist or physician
