Metrogel is a prescribed topical medication used to treat inflammatory lesions associated with rosacea. 

Belonging to the nitroimidazole class of antibiotics, Metrogel inhibits bacterial growth responsible for rosacea, resulting in reduced redness, swelling, and the occurrence of rosacea-related pimples. 

Uses and Dosage 

Before starting treatment with Metrogel and with each prescription refill, carefully review its medication guide and patient information leaflet. If you have any questions or clarifications, seek guidance from your doctor or pharmacist. 

Metrogel is for topical use only and should not be taken orally, used in the eyes, or applied inside the vagina. 

Typically, this gel is applied to the affected skin area once a day as prescribed by the doctor. 

To properly apply Metrogel: 

  1. Ensure that you wash and dry your hands before application. 
  2. Cleanse and dry the area to be treated. 
  3. Apply and rub in a thin layer of gel as directed by your doctor. 
  4. Wash your hands after applying the gel. 
  5. Allow a 5-minute interval before applying any cosmetics. 

Exercise caution to prevent the gel from coming into contact with the eyes or mouth. If accidental contact occurs with the eyes, promptly rinse with water, and seek immediate medical attention. 

To maximize the effectiveness of Metrogel, ensure regular use around the same times every day. 

Complete the entire prescribed course of Metrogel, even if symptoms improve rapidly. Skipping doses can elevate the risk of developing medication-resistant infections. 

Contact your doctor if your symptoms worsen or fail to improve while using this medication.
