About Rozex 

Rozex is a cream which is used to treat rosacea. It helps reduce facial redness, flushing and small red spots. Rozex contains metronidazole, which is an antibiotic. It helps reduce redness and inflammation. It also stops bacteria, which cause inflammation, from growing.

Rozex will usually take a few weeks to work. It's important to keep using Rozex regularly to see an improvement in your skin.

Rozex gel should be used for as long as your doctor has prescribed. Stopping the treatment early could mean you don't see an improvement in your skin, and the rosacea will come back.

How To Use Rozex

Rozex should be used twice a day to treat rosacea. Apply a thin layer of Rozex to clean, dry skin and rub into all affected areas. Wash your hands after use.

If you forget to use Rozex, apply it as soon as you remember or wait until you are next due to use it. Rozex doesn't have to be used at exactly the same time each day as long as it is applied twice daily.

Can I wear makeup while using Rozex?

You can still wear makeup while using Rozex. Wait for the cream to be absorbed by your skin before applying makeup.

What kind of foundation can I use to cover redness caused by rosacea?

Foundation or bases which have a green tint work best to cover up and even out redness. Camouflage makeup is available to provide a stronger coverage. Brands such as Dermablend are specifically formulated for people with skin conditions or sensitive skin and will not irritate the skin further.
