What is Rozex?
Rozex cream is a topical medication that is available on prescription and is used for the treatment of pustules and inflammatory papules of skin disease called ‘Rosacea.’ A rosacea skin disorder is characterized by redness that appears like a blush, blemish, pimples, or some lumps in the nose or chin due to bloated blood vessels.
Rozex cream contains the active ingredient known as ‘Metronidazole.’ This is a drug that belongs to the classification of medicines as antibacterials or antiprotozoals.
How does Rozex work?
Rozex cream contains the active ingredient ‘Metronidazole.’ It is an antibiotic kind of drug. This is used to treat the massive inflammatory action of the skin condition known as acne rosacea. This is a long term skin condition characterized by redness and inflammation of the chin, eyelids, nose, cheeks, and forehead.
The cream is used to help reduce the cystic action of the skin condition and help reduce the redness. It is unclear specifically how this drug works, but it is found effective in curing the condition with its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory action to the skin.
It often takes 2-3 months of consistent use of Rozex cream that the skin starts to clear up and reduce the redness.
