Pyoderma faciale aka Rosacea fulminans

I have Pyoderma faciale aka Rosacea fulminans. I saw a dermatologist but he wanted to put me on Accutane but I am against that. I need help finding a skincare routine. I have tried Proactive, Acne-Free, Murad, Skin ID, and DDF without any luck. I only have the pyoderma faciale on my chin and jaw line. The upper part of my face is clear. My skin is very senstive and my jaw is dry because I have been using Clean & Clear  PERSA-GEL 10 which has 10% Benzoyl Peroxide but haven't seen any imporvement. Help me please?

I have been battling an unusual skin condition for the past 2 years, it has disfigured my face and has not responded to any of the treatments including acutane!  Finally I found a research hospital that diagnosed me with Pyoderma Faciale.  They are heavily pushing the Acutane again but I had alot of bad psychological side effects when I was on it (they also treated me with heavydoeses of steroids) and did not want to face that again since i have recently been diagnosed with clinical depression.  When I refused to take the Acutane they told me they could also treat it with an antibiotic called Dopsane which is used to treat leprosy.  It still has side effects because it is a powerful antibiotic but the effects arent nearly as bad as acutane!  I woudl ask your doctor about the treatment. I hope this helps!

This skin condition is dissimilar from acne. It is not associated with comedones or oiliness. Traditional (drying) treatments therefore might not be effective. Accutane and steroids are generally the treatment. Your derm should have explained this. Go get a second opinion so you can make a more informed treatment decision and avoid scarring.

Clinique has an entire skincare and makeup line called "Redness Solutions" that is for sensitive skin with reactive redness and rosacea.

Here's a link to some of their skincare products

Here are a few of their makeup products:

Clinique Redness Solutions Makeup SPF 15 is an oil-free liquid foundation that treats and covers redness with a natural look.  You can find it at:

Clinique Redness Solutions Daily Protective Base SPF 15 is a face primer that protects your skin from the UVA/UVB exposure that can aggravate skin with rosacea or reactive redness.  It has no chemical sunscreens so it's gentle. It is also oil-free and has a sheer green tint to visually correct redness and even your skin tone.  You can find it at:

Clinique Redness Solutions Instant Relief Mineral Powder is a very good powder that can be used to set your foundation and neutralize redness at the same time.  It is ideal for skin types with reactive redness or rosacea.  This product is gentle enough for the eye area, has been allergy-tested and is 100% free of fragrances, oil, and talc.  You can read more about it at:

If you type in Sephora's search box "Clinique Redness Solutions" it'll bring up all of their skincare and makeup products for you to take a look at.

I hope this helps you.  🙂
