im not so sure why youd be taking this in the first place with redness or rosacea. it makes your skin very red and is very sensitive to sunlight.

if you do use it then make sure you have sunscreen on during the day

I use the cream, because when I was prescribed it I was coming off 'tane treatment. If you're on the dry side, or have super sensitive skin, the cream may be a better fit. The gel is supposedly ideal for really oily skin.

I use the .1%, but even though I've been on it for three months, I still get peely now and again if I don't moisturize enough. It might be better to start off w/the .05% first, unless you're super oily.
