Rosacea/Rhinophyma SP50 facial product recommendations

Hello,
I have been diagnosed with Rhinopehyma, due to ongoing rosacea around the nose area, which has not been effectively treated for one reason or another. I am told I'm unusual because I'm female and this is usually a male problem. Due to have some surgery soon (not available on nhs unfortunately), followed by laser treatment in an attempt to address the appearance of this.

I would welcome any advice on this issue, from those who have possibly experienced the same. I have also been recommended to take much more care with sun protection. So, I'm wondering if anybody has a recommendation for a SP50 protector that can double as a make up base product, not likely to aggravate the skin around my nose, which is extremely sensitive.

Grateful thanks.
M

I was wondering if you had treatment and how it turned out? I have the same problem and it’s very depressing.
Thanks

Hello Julie_4978 and MaryLinda

There are quite a few sunscreens available and a high factor all year round is often recommended.

Hi Linda

Ive had Rosacea on my nose for the last 20 years up until 2 years ago I was taking Tetrocyclin and it worked but the las 18 months its had no effect.
Ive been in touch with a dermatologist and in September 2020 he put me on Isotretinoin 20mg once a day.
his has stopped the bumps and lumps I was getting on my nose for he firs time in years.
hope his helps
Jim
