Could you attach a picture of the rash?
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 1 year ago.
I had asked if you could attach a picture of the rash and have not heard back. If this is rosacea, then of the options that you listed a retinol cream would be reasonable. However, the most commonly used first line medicine for rosacea that I use is topical metronidazole, such as Metrogel. If I can provide any additional information, please let me know.
