Hate&Love and ComplexIssues: I am starting to get irritated because both of you are posting questions have already been asked. And these questions have already been answered by multiple veteran members of this forum. With that said - I will no longer be participating in this discussion.
Thankyou for the reply, yes I now realize I shouldn't of used the olive oil and sugar, I figured that out a little too late though obviously. Normally I can very very gently exfoliate with a wet wash clothe with no problem or additional irritation, that is if I do it with an extremely light and gentle hand as I said so I figured the sugar and olive oil would be gentle too, especially if you use it. I didn't end up using cold compresses but I did put aquaphor on last night, today it's really red but no longer as extremely dark as it was last night. I really wish as I said that I would of had a camera because it looked as though my skin had totally been burned off and was literally crimson/merlot red in shade.
I don't think doing nothing is the right way to go about this, I feel I do need to take a systematic approach but that is what I'm not understanding and what I initially asked you in my last post, how long does a course of antibiotics typically last for steroid induced rosacea?? I'm sorry to be bothering you so much with my questions but obviously there is little to no information aside from here and also I've been able to locate no one else who has ever dealt with this aside from you. I will discontinue posting though as I can see it is clearly an annoyance and irritating, I ask what questions are on my mind or that I need to know at the time; some of which I'm sorry, might be answered elsewhere but also some specifics that are not. My apologies again though and I will also discontinue participation.
