What are the directions for PROSACEA Gel?Clean skin thoroughly before applying medication. Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer of PROSACEA Gel one to three times daily. Massage gently until absorbed into the skin. If you are a new user of PROSACEA Gel, we recommend applying sparingly to one or two small affected areas during the first three days. If no discomfort occurs, you may continue use. Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two or three times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor.
What is the active ingredient in PROSACEA Gel?PROSACEA Gel contains Sulphur 1x.
What does the 1x mean?The 1x is homeopathic nomenclature for the potency of the active ingredient. The “x” refers to a 10-fold dilution, so 1x means the ingredient has undergone one 10-fold dilution. PROSACEA Gel is 10% 1x sulphur, so PROSACEA Gel contains approximately 1% sulphur.
How long can I use PROSACEA Gel?There is no limit on the time period for using PROSACEA Gel. You can use it as long as it seems to be helping your condition. If your condition clears to your satisfaction you can stop using PROSACEA Gel.

Can I use make-up, moisturizers, or sunscreen with PROSACEA Gel?Yes, you can use make-up, moisturizers, or sunscreen with PROSACEA Gel.

WHAT IS ROSACEA?
Rosacea is a highly visible skin condition, the exact cause of which is still not fully understood, but is thought to be hereditary. Commonly, rosacea affects skin on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead, usually causing a reddened, inflamed appearance. Rosacea is generally thought to affect those with fair skin most frequently, though it can affect all skin types. Symptoms may also include acne-like bumps and pimples and visible blood vessels. Rosacea is commonly known to be aggravated by anything that causes a flushing reaction (increased blood-flow) in the skin, which could include alcohol consumption, exposure to sun or extreme temperatures, spicy foods and other irritants. The symptoms of this condition do not typically disappear if left untreated and may even progressively worsen over time. While currently there is no known cure for rosacea, symptoms are known to respond favorably to certain topical treatments.
WHAT ARE THE STAGES OF ROSACEA?
Generally, rosacea progresses through three symptomatic stages:
Stage 1: In the earliest stage of rosacea, the most common symptoms can include subtle to moderate redness, stinging, burning, dryness or tightness of skin. Tiny visible blood vessels (telangiectasia) may also appear on the skin’s surface. Skin may begin to react to certain cosmetics, and may also be more reactive to temperature changes or become sensitive to certain foods.
Stage 2: As the condition progresses, redness becomes more persistent. Larger areas of the face may become affected. The formation of papules (red bumps) or pustules (resembling pimples) and swelling may develop. Facial pores and sebaceous follicles may become larger and more prominent.
Stage 3: Generally, stage 3 rosacea is less common, but individuals diagnosed with this advanced stage of rosacea exhibit all characteristics of stages 1 and 2 in a more severe form. Facial features may become thicker, irregular or even exhibit gradual deformation. Affected areas of the skin become a deeper shade of red. The sebaceous glands may become extremely enlarged, contributing to further redness, inflammation, papules, pustules and swelling of facial features.
If you believe you may have rosacea, do not delay in consulting a doctor for proper diagnosis and advice.
