I recently found out I have mild or pre-rosacea as the doctor oh so professionally called it so I wanted to ask experienced ladies some questions:

* Can using a sleep mask trigger an onset of symptoms? I notice they are exactly in the place covered by my sleep mask - inner cheeks, nose and parts of eyelids.

* I have been prescribed metronidazole cream - those of you who used it, how long does it take for the symptoms to abate when using it? Is there an average period? My derm did not deign to inform me.

*I have the type of rosacea with raised, red dry skin patches sometimes interspersed with tiny pustules - do yours ever flake or peel?

* does your skin react with redness and itching to almost EVERY cream you put on it except the medication?
