I have always had a red nose but lately all of my face has been red. I have followed the directions to the letter on my relief kit. I have not had any new outbreaks and my skin is a lot less red. I'm very impressed with this product. All I used to be able to use for my outbreaks was Metrogel and it pretty well stopped helping. Was very happy when I read about Zenmed. Hopeful is a better word for it! I am very happy with the results so far!
