Medication for Rosacea
Dermatologists may prescribe topical antibiotics like metronidazole gel or cream, clindamycin solution, lotion or gel for 5-8 weeks for a significant response. In case topical treatments fail, oral antibiotics may be prescribed. The common anti bitocs given for Rosacea include tetracycline, erythromycin, doxycycline and minocycline. Isotretinoine can be prescribed for severe cases of Rosacea but because it causes adverse side effects, pregnant women should avoid this.
Surgery for Rosacea
Laser surgery and electrosurgery can be used to treat rhinophyma and redness. A yellow light laser can be used to treat skin lesions.
