Rosacea is very complex and a tailored treatment program give the best results. This is because there are many types of rosacea (telengtctatic or capillaries, flushing and redness, acne like rosacea, ocular rosacea and even rhinophyma rosacea.
To add to the complexity, everyone has different flare factors- Sunlight, stress, foods, chemical irritants, creams, changes in temperature, alcohol. The list goes on.
A detailed history, together with a treatment tailored according to YOUR type of rosacea will give the best results. As a guide, I use a combination of -
1. Lasers ( to treat redness, broken capillaries, rhinophyma, flushing)- best laser is the V BEAM. IPL can be used, but usually not as effective
2. Creams - anti inflammatory
3. Tablets -anti - inflammatory and sometimes low dose Vitamin A.
4. For females- Mineral make up is recommend, over make up that contains parabens.
For the best results, consult a dermatologist for both medical and laser treatment options.

Rosacea creams should not make the skin burn or peel. Lasers are a better treatment than steroids. I suggest you see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer.
Thank you for your question. Locoid is not used for Rosacea. Topical treatments for Rosacea include Sunscreen, Metronidazole, Finacea, Soolantra, etc. Locoid is a low-mid potency topical steroid which is used for dermatitis additionally it should not cause burning and peeling and typically will resolve those issues though you may have an allergy to the steroid. I would return to your board certified Dermatologist asap for proper evaluation and management. Regards, Dr. Matt Elias
