Has anyone got or heard of this? Admitedly it sounds bad but the reality is it looks like I have a cross between adult acne and roscea on my chin. It is not contagioous just looks a bit unsightly when it is really bad. I went to the doctor and got antibiotics but it keeps coming back a few weeks after finishing the course. Have googled it and general concensus is that antibiotics are the way to go. Just wondered if anyone who had it had tried a natural method and got it cleared up.
I had it repeatedly. Took antibiotics each time, started on high dose then reduced. But took them for approx 4 weeks each time. When the pain and itching was really bad I used hydrocortisone cream. I've not had an attack for over a year now. So my advice is to persevere with anti biotics.
I got the cream over the counter because it was cheaper than paying for prescription, but my GP recommended it. I had the antibiotic on repeat prescription so I could get some as soon as I saw it coming back.
I took oxytetracycline 250mg 4x a day for a week them 2x a day until cleared up completely.
