What is Rosiced?
Rosiced cream contains the active ingredient metronidazole, which is a type of medicine that kills bacteria in the skin. It reduces inflammation and gives the skin a smooth and flawless appearance. Rosiced cream is only available on prescription.
What is Rosiced cream used for?
Rosiced is primarily used to treat a skin condition called rosacea, which manifests itself as redness in areas of the face, especially the cheeks, nose and forehead. The redness is often accompanied by bumps, pimples (pustules), a burning sensation and veins that are visible in the skin as red lines. Rosiced cream can be used to help clear up spots and cysts associated with the condition, and it also reduces redness and patchiness. Rosiced may also be used to treat other skin infections.
How to use Rosiced cream
Rosiced cream should be applied thinly to clean skin, and only to the affected areas. Wash your hands thoroughly after applying the cream and avoid contact with the eyes, inside of nostrils and mouth. Rinse thoroughly with water should this occur. For the treatment of rosacea you will need to use the cream for an extended period of time. If your symptoms have not improved after several months, you should talk to your doctor.
Unless otherwise advised by the doctor, the usual method of administration is:
- Adults: apply the cream sparingly to the affected areas twice a day.
Always follow the prescription exactly - never use more or less than the doctor recommends. Read the package leaflet before use. Rosiced cream is not suitable for use in children.
Rosiced cream may cause side effects, including:
- Skin discomfort or irritation (itching, burning, dryness, redness) at the application site. If these side effects are severe, apply less of the cream or use it less often until the irritation has settled;
- Increased sensitivity of the skin to UV light (skin irritation or sunburn). Avoid direct sunlight and sunbeds. On a sunny day, always use sunscreen.
Consult a doctor if the side effects are severe or persistent. For more information on possible side effects, see the package leaflet.
