I was prescribed Finacea today by my dermatologist for my rosacea. I was previously using Metrocream but that stopped working for me.
I picked up the Finacea today and used it for the first time and...holy crap, it burns. I remember the Metrocream stinging a bit at first, but this is stronger. Part of it might be that I have a particularly harsh rosacea outbreak going on right now and my skin was really dry and sensitive.
Does it feel better with subsequent applications? Has it worked for you? And, any suggestions on calming down the burning?
