This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
how old are you?
most cases of rosacea are not caused by overpopulation of demoxtex mites
most experts think that abnormalities of blood vessels in the skin of the face is what causes rosacea.
Recent studies have shown the drug brimonidine (Mirvaso) to be effective in reducing redness. It is applied to the skin as a gel. It works by constricting blood vessels. You may see results within 12 hours after application.
Other topical products that have been shown to reduce redness and the pimples of mild rosacea are azelaic acid and metronidazole. With these drugs, improvements generally don't appear for three to six weeks.
let me know if you have questions.
it sounds like you are pretty convinced.
you can get treatment for these dermoxtex mites and see if your rosacea gets better
