After having incorrect 'diagnosis' for my ever-getting-worse redness around my mouth and nose, I finally received a prescription for this from one doctor. It has saved my face!!!! It's incredible!!! It took about a week for it to really start working, but it cleared up the random breakouts, and extreme redness.

Interesting how a topical application can be so effective so quickly. I have used this medicine since the mid 1990's when needed. While there is appearently no cure, the symtoms are controlled very well.

it took four years to find a diagnosis and treatment for what my new doctor says is rosacea. She prescribed Metro-gel cream .75% plus duflican 100 mg (anti-fungal) I promise you, I began to see results the next day. No itching or burning with this cream. (I dont tolerate gels well) cream works better. This combination is a miracle. Please use a mild castile soap cleanser to better pamper your skin ... Show Full Comment

I was diagnosed with Rosacea 4 weeks ago. I had painful pimples all over my face. My dermatologist prescribed Metrogel to be used once each day, with an oral antibiotic, Doxycycline 100mg, twice each day. Today ws my 1 month check-up and my face looks so much better. I have to continue using Metrogel daily.
