Brief Answer:
It is a good drug for rosacea especially in refractory cases!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

Dapsone is used to treat Rosacea and most especially in persons who have failed to respond to other drugs or are unable to take vitamin A. If you have had difficulties controlling your condition with other medications, I will suggest you consider taking dapsone. Keep me updated should you start this medications.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be. Above all, thanks for using our services.

HI,

This is a locally applied drug and as such side effects are minimal and limited to the area of application. Beyond redness and a possible local inflammatory reaction, there is no major reason to be concerned.
