Q. Other than Elocon, which ointment can I apply for rosacea?



Hi doctor,

I have steroid induced rosacea. In my childhood I was prescribed Elocon and ever since I have been using the same for my entire skin problem. Hence, if I did not use then my skin starts reacting with itchiness, redness and flushing. I am having this problem for than 10 years. Also, I am allergic to dust. I want to get rid of Elocon without any oral medicine. Please help.





Welcome to dr.sitehome.info.

  • Many people with long-term steroids application have no effect on the redness. However, you stop the ointment immediately. Otherwise, your skin will get them even more and in the future nothing can be done.
  • For the clinical diagnosis of rosacea I would like to get three pictures of face in the daylight, one front and two side views.
  • Some questions before we proceed, does the condition increase during periods of heightened emotional or physical stress anxiety or physical exercise?
  • How many glasses or cups of tea or coffee do you have in a day?
  • Have you had any past incidences of stones? What is your cholesterol and triglyceride level?
  • Please revert back to me with the pictures and the answers to the above question which will help me to understand better and right to get management. Thank you.
