Q:

How long will it take to cure my rosacea?

A:

Rosacea is not something that typically clears up in a day or two. Often, treatment will have to last for weeks or even months in order to get the condition well controlled. People with rosacea are also prone to having recurrent flare-ups, especially if they do not avoid the things that trigger their rosacea.
