Reported Results
Benefits:   I had the drug initally offered to me by my dermatologist in sample tube years ago. I found it very effective, despite only dabbing on the smallest amount due to only having small sample tube. Yet despite quick clear-ups...I would occasionally have recurrances under my nose with the rash. I have struggled with this rash for over 20 years. With the last outbreak, while having minimal amounts left in the sample tube, I went in to my dermatologist and got a full prescription in about June of 2009. Not only was I able to use a bit more in application this time, but it obviously was not an expired product. I found the long-term rash hsf completely cleared up within less than a week. While this was not new to me with this product, the fact that I have had no recurrance whatsoever in over four months is the great news.
Side effects:   Absolutely none
Comments:   After washing my face with my long-term personal choice of face wash (Alpha Hydrox foaming face wash) and using a Strident sensitive skin cleaning pad, I would apply the Noritate cream sparingly over the rash under my nose at night. (Note: I did not use the tetracycline during this time, as I knew it was not an acne-related outbreak.)
