What Is Metrosa?

Metrosa gel is used to treat a facial skin condition called Rosacea, sometimes referred to as acne rosacea or adult acne. Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes redness and visible blood vessels in your skin. It may also give birth to small red bumps with pus.

Symptoms of rosacea may come and go. In most cases, symptoms flare up for a few weeks, then fade gradually and then come back. If this condition is left untreated, the redness and swelling may become severe and might become permanent. Treatment with Metrosa gel reduces long-term inflammation of the cheeks, nose, chin, forehead and eyelids. It also reduces redness, cysts, and spots associated with rosacea.

How Does Metrosa Work?

Metrosa gel contains metronidazole as its active ingredient, which is an antibiotic. An antibiotic is a medication used to treat bacterial and some protozoal infections. Metronidazole comes from a class of drugs known as nitroimidazole antimicrobials. These drugs are used against anaerobic bacteria. They simply stop the growth of bacteria and prevent further infection.

It will take at least three months to clear up the redness and spots. It is still unknown what causes rosacea and no bacteria has been associated with this condition but treatment with metronidazole helps minimise the symptoms of Rosacea.

What Are The Benefits Of Using Metrosa?

Metrosa gel is an antibiotic that is used for the treatment of rosacea. It is applied to the skin regularly as per doctor’s instructions. It has following benefits:

  • It reduces redness and swelling
  • It helps with tiny bumps and pimple associated with rosacea.
  • It reduces the frequency of rosacea flare ups

An important benefit of choosing a gel over an oral medication is that Metrosa gel can be used while you are under treatment with other medications. When Metrosa gel is applied on the skin, only trace amounts of Metronidazole are absorbed in the blood stream, so it is highly unlikely that this medication will affect any other drug that you are taking orally.

How Do I Use Metrosa?

It is important that you use this medication exactly as prescribed by your doctor.

  • Wash your hands before application.
  • Wash your face with a mild cleanser before application.
  • Apply a thin layer of the gel to the affected areas only twice a day, in the morning and evening.
  • Avoid applying near your eyes.
  • Rub the gel in with gentle circular motions.
  • Use this treatment for rosacea as long as your doctor has told you to.

Metrosa Dosage

Usual Dosage for Adults

Apply to the affected areas of skin two times a day, morning and evening, for nine weeks.

Dosage for Children

Rosacea usually does not occur in children. Do not use this medication on a child without a doctor’s approval.

  • Avoid strong sunlight (including sunbathing) and ultraviolet lights (like sun lamps) when under treatment with Metrosa gel.
  • Although only trace amounts of Metronidazole are absorbed in the bloodstream, the safety of using this medication during pregnancy and breastfeeding has not been established yet. Consult you doctor before using this medication.
  • Check the expiration date written on the box before application.

Side Effects of Using Metrosa

As Metrosa is not an oral medication, its side effects are barely noticeable. Some of the common side effects of the gel are skin discomfort, sensation of burning or stinging, irritation, skin dryness, redness, and inflammation of the skin. If your rosacea gets worse after using Metrosa gel, contact your doctor.

Some uncommon side effects of Metrosa gel application include tingling or numbing sensation, watery eyes (especially if the gel is applied close the eyes) and in very rare cases metallic taste in mouth and nausea.
