Has anyone used metrocream during their pregnancy?
I have severe rosacea and since I stopped taking my antibiotic its come back even worse. My doctor said it was ok to use the metrocream. But I'm still a little worried. I'd feel better if someone told me they used it with no problems. Im 21 weeks along & the rosacea is only in my face.

Metrocream (metronidazole) is classified as a type B pregnancy drug. It should be fine for you to use as directed as only a small amount of it would have the chance of crossing the fetal barrier. You can look up this medication and others at womenshealth.gov or webmd Answered by Erna Whitworth 6 months ago.
Which is best for Rosacea- Metrogel, Metrocream, or Metrolotion?
I've been using Metrogel but I'm starting to become curious about Metrocream and Metrolotion.. My skin type is sort of oily and dry and sometimes flakes around the sides of my mouth.. So, perhaps gel is too harsh right now and I should try the lotion? I am also on differin, finacea, and the oracea pill.

Any good ideas on how to treat rosacea? Metrocream is not working for me?

Rosacea is a facial rash usually composed of prominent redness and sometimes pimples as well. Rosacea usually occurs in the central part of the face and involves the nose, cheeks, chin and/or forehead. Long term Rosacea may produce Rhinophyma, an enlarged nose, typified by W.C. Field’s nose. TREATMENT DEPENDS UPON TYPE............. there are four types-- 1. Erythematotelangiectatic. 2.Papulopustular. 3.Phymatous. 4.Ocular. treatment----------- 1. topical (applied to the skin) antibiotic, metronidazole is commonly given as a gel or cream for the treatment of mild rosacea.takes about two months to see a more definite improvement. 2.Antibiotic tablets or capsules,The antibiotics normally used are oxytetracycline or tetracycline or erythromycin. Doxycycline i 3. Isotretinoinworks by reducing the production of the skin's sebum and reducing the keratin in the outer layers of the skin. 4. eyelid hygiene 5. Redness and flushing --Clonidine is sometimes used as a non-hormonal treatment for facial flushing during and around the menopause . Over the counter medicines-----------------------(a) corticosteroid creams (such as hydrocortisone) would initially appear to help because they reduce inflammation but, when you stop using them, you could experience a severe flare up (b)_ camouflage creams . (c)_ Laser treatment for telangiectasia. (d)_ Surgery for rhinophyma. Any good ideas on how to treat rosacea? AFTER DETAILS OF YOUR CONDITION. Answered by Ouida Lazer 6 months ago.
Check out whether or not rosacea can be related to yeast infestation (Candida). I think it might. If so, then there are treatments for systemic yeast infestations. www.hufa.org has some basic information about this mostly silent condition. Answered by Colene Zarco 6 months ago.

First, I would ask your dermatologist to switch you from Metrocream to Finacea. It's been studied to be *much* more effective for rosacea than Metrocream (MetroGel). Finacea is 15% azelaic acid, and the reduction in redness and sensitivity provided after 8 weeks of treatment with Finacea is much better than with Metrocream/Metrogel. Secondly, you will probably need to use moisturizer after you apply the rosacea medication. Select something basic for sensitive skin -- like an Aveeno moisturizer. Your "cover up" (depending on what it is) could contain some alcohol, or if it is powder-based, is going to further dry-out your skin. You need to select a different cover-up that won't dry out your skin -- selecting one for sensitive skin that is creamy will help. Good luck! Answered by Norene Timmer 6 months ago.
Rosacea is considered a chronic (long-term), non-curable skin disease with periodic ups and downs. As opposed to traditional acne, most adult patients do not "outgrow" rosacea. It characteristically involves the central region of the face, causing persistent redness or transient flushing over the areas of the face and nose that normally blush -- mainly the forehead, the chin and the lower half of the nose. It is commonly seen in people with fair or light skin, and particularly in those of Irish and Scottish backgrounds. Unfortunately there isn't much you can do with Rosacea there are many different treatments to consider and if this one isn't helping you, consult your Doctor to prescribe a different one until you have found the one that suits you.

Topical metronidazole (MetroCream or MetroGel) is an antibiotic cream and a very common rosacea treatment. Other antibiotic creams include clindamycin (Cleocin and Clinda-Derm) and erythromycin (Emgel and Erygel). Your doctor may also recommend antibacterial skin treatments like azelaic acid (Azelex, Finacea) and sodium sulfacetamide and sulfur (Clenia, Plexion). Tretinoin (Avita, Retin-A), a retinoid, is used in some hard to treat cases. Oral Antibiotics If your rosacea is more severe -- or doesn't respond to ointments -- your doctor might suggest antibiotic pills, though you might keep using skin treatments as well. Some oral antibiotics your doctor might try are minocycline (Dynacin), erythromycin (ERYC), metronidazole (Flagyl), and doxycycline (Vibramycin.) Like any medicine, oral antibiotics can cause side effects. Treatment is typically long-term, often lasting at least six months. Other Drugs If these rosacea treatments don't work, your doctor may try other medicines, such as isotretinoin (Accutane.) However, because of its serious side effects -- like a risk of birth defects -- its use is not routine. Answered by Carl Simoncini 6 months ago.
Unfortunately there is no cure to this condition however like mentioned above it is possible to lessen it's affects. I have heard antibiotics can improve the appearance of your skin, however you will have to see your doctor to get these. Additionally, Rosacea can sometimes be aggravated by certain foods and environments, so maybe it would be necessary to monitor the times when it is at its worst with your diet.

Anyone with rosacea that has used rosex cream?
Is it any good/ does it work? and how long did you have to use it for? please give all the details, i've finally been prescribed this :)
Asked by Marg Follmer 6 months ago.
Metrogel, Metrocream, or Noritate (all contain metronidazole) have worked well for me in the past. Since Rosacea is apparently caused by a protozoa (animal) rather than a bacteria or fungus (plant) antibiotics don't work. By the way, some protozoa can occupy stomach, intestines, nasal cavity or reproductive organs so it may be necessary to have further tests for infections. Consult you doctor. I heard rumors that Rosex was taken off the market or re-branded due to name confusion. I don't know whether it works or not. Answered by Jonathon Porraz 6 months ago.

I use metrocream which is prescribed and laser treatments. An acne cream will help with breakouts, but will not lessen the redness. Try to find a clinic or low cost doctor since the symptoms may affect your eyes eventually and/or lead to broken veins or scarring your nose, cheeks and chin. There is no cure but symptomatic relief is available. Answered by Garland Robnett 6 months ago.
