• <h4 class="dechead">On One Hand: Proactiv may irritate rosacea

    Acne and rosacea are very different. Red, dry skin is quite unlike oily, acne-infected skin. A product built to dehydrate pimples should not double as a treatment for easily irritated skin. Most people who suffer from rosacea find that even gentle face creams inflame their skin. Proactive is a harsh, chemically driven treatment that may make rosacea symptoms even worse.

    On the Other: Proactiv may help rosacea

    Often, rosacea causes pimples and bumps that resemble acne. If this is the case, a product designed to dry pimples may be the solution.

    Bottom Line

    Everyone's skin is different. Especially when dealing with the sensitive skin that accompanies rosacea, it's best to visit a dermatologist. The dermatologist will recommend the best treatment for each individual.
