Brief Answer:
treatment under dermatologist guidance.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,Thanks for writing to health care magic.I can understand your concern.

I hope diagnosis of rosecea is made by a dermatologist and not by you.

Treatment which you have received till now is non specific in my opinion.

Rosecea is a chronic disease and it requires long term treatment.A course of oral antibiotics, such as tetracyclines, topical metrogyl etc will help. Now a days vascular lasers are also effective in rosecea. It will be better to consult a dermatologist and start treatment under his guidance.

I will advise you to stop betnovate-gm cream as it can worsen the condition. Avoid sun exposure as far as possible. Use mild face cleansers instead of soaps. Eating spicy foods can aggravate this condition and it will be better to stop these foods as far as possible.

I hope this will help you.Take care.
