Ok so I started the erythromycin gel; it's really drying my skin! I started a new pack of birth control and realized I was off by a day so I took two. That night and into today my face exploded. I think my birth control is making my rosacea worse. I'm going to stop both for a week and see what happens. The doctor asked me if I noticed my rosacea getting worse after starting birth control, and I wasn't sure...but thinking about it and what happened last night is a big clue!
