Standard treatment of steroid-induced rosacea includes discontinuation of steroids and use of an oral tetracycline. A temporary decrease to a lower-potency steroid prior to discontinuation remains optional. The limitations of standard therapy include a prolonged course of treatment with exacerbations prior to permanent improvement. Our challenge was to identify a treatment regimen to resolve steroid-induced periocular rosacea quickly and with minimal rebound effect.
