Rosacea/Metrogel question

For those of you that use Metrogel, does your skin appear worse before it gets better when using this stuff? It seems to make my skin redder and I thought the point was to take away the redness. Any insite is helpful.

    No, that wasn't my experience with Metrogel.

    Eons ago I tried it and it did the same to me. I couldn't use it long enough to find out if it got better eventually. My face just really didn't like that stuff. Too harsh. Ask you dermatologist for samples of other topical options. Mine gave me about 6 different things to try and I found one that worked really well for me. Good luck. I know how frustrating Rosacea can be.
