MetroGel (metronidazole) is a topical antibiotic medication used to treat rosacea in adults. More than 14 million Americans have symptoms of rosacea, but many people don’t know that it can be treated. MetroGel is the most popular topical treatment for rosacea. When applied to the affected area, clinical trials have shown that MetroGel reduces the symptoms of rosacea by fighting the bacteria that causes redness, swelling, and inflammation.
eDrugstore sells authentic, FDA-approved MetroGel manufactured in the United States by Galderma Laboratories.
When applying MetroGel, avoid contact with your eye area, as the gel can irritate the eyes. If accidental contact occurs, thoroughly rinse your eyes and face with water. For best results, use MetroGel regularly for at least 3 weeks. If your condition does not improve, talk to you doctor. In some cases, it can take up to 9 weeks to see results.
